WZZR is an FM radio station that serves the Port St. Lucie/Stuart/West Palm Beach/Fort Lauderdale/Miami area with a talk radio format. Its studios and transmitter tower are in West Palm Beach (separately).

It broadcasts on 94.3, and used to broadcast on 92.7. Until 1992, it was known as "Z93" and played top 40 music, and music from the 1980s and 1970s. It also supported the local St. Lucie Mets home games at Thomas J. White Stadium (now Tradition Field) in Port St. Lucie (St. Lucie West). The name of the station was on merchandise that was given away during games, including bat holders and towels. In 1992, it changed its format to talk, although it occasionally played music until the mid-1990s. Its current slogan is Music radio sucks; the station used to play music. It is under ownership of iHeartMedia, Inc., and shares a building with several other iHeartMedia, Inc. stations. The WZZR calls used to be assigned to what is now WLHT in Grand Rapids, Michigan. That station was known as "Z-96... The WIZZARD of Rock."
