WZVN (107.1 FM) is an American radio station broadcasting an adult contemporary music format. Licensed to Lowell, Indiana, United States, it serves Northwest Indiana and Chicago's south suburbs. The station is currently owned by Adams Radio Group, LLC, through licensee Adams Radio of Northern Indiana, LLC,[1] and features programming from Jones Radio Network. The format was shifted to adult contemporary from hot adult contemporary in August 2011, after rival WCFS-FM dropped it for all-news.

When WZVN first began broadcasting in 1972, the call letters were WLCL (which stood for Lowell and Cedar Lake); the original owner, William J. Dunn, planned a radio station of local interest serving the two towns.[2] The call letters were changed to WZVN in 1981, when the station was purchased by White Advertising; the format was changed to a Top 40 format under the new call letters.

WZVN is not licensed to broadcast a digital HD signal.[3]

WZVN broadcasts at the maximum ERP allowed with an antenna height of 152 meters.[4] The WZVN tower is located on Indiana State Road 55 just north of Indiana State Road 2.
