New Alternative For Gainesville/Ocala      4-19-14
WHHZ-FM 10.5 has become "100.5 The Buzz, North Florida's Rock Alternative". WHHZ picked up the Active Rock format back in 2010. Program Director Kevin McKay told All Access, "The move to a more Alternative lean only made sense to us. In a market such as ours, it only seems right.
