WLAZ History
1997-Jose Arzuaga, a Puerto Rican broadcaster opened two FM stations, WLAZ-FM 88.7 in Clermont and WWKQ-FM 89.1 in Kissimmee. Both were licensed as noncommercial stations. The plans were to simulcast Top 40 Latin music and Spanish-language educational programming on the stations and call them ''the Z.'' The studios were located 4540 Curry Ford Road in Orlando. The 1,000-watt, non-commercial station is licensed and based in south Lake County, near the Four Corners area, where the Osceola County line meets with three other counties. The 400-foot broadcast tower is located on top of Sugarloaf Mountain. The signal reaches Orlando, Kissimmee, northern Lake County and Southwest Volusia County. The station will support itself with corporate sponsorships similar to those found on public radio stations.
