WWRZ History

In 1996 the tower was moved from Arcadia to Zolfo Springs. In 1999, the tower was moved again...this time between Ft Meade and Bowling Green. As January 1, 2006 came to an end, so to did the station's identity of "98.3fm The Rose". On Monday, January 2, 2006 instead of the soft rock of Celine Dion, Mariah Carey, and Lionel Richie listeners awoke to the best rock and pop hits from the 70's through today.
