WZNN (106.7 FM) is a
radio stationserving the Green Bay, Wisconsinarea. The station is owned by Cumulus Media, and launched an Alternative rockformat on March 6, 2007as "106-7 The Zone," after previously airing Classic rockand Country Musicformats.
WZNN Also refers to [http://wznn.org World Zoroastrian News Network (wznn.org , wznn.net) ]
The station began broadcasts in December 1996 as Jack LeDuc resurrected the WJLW call letters and its
country musicformat one year after selling its previous home at 95.9 FM. LeDuc ran WJLW until March 1998, when he decided to sell a second time. The new owners, Cumulus Media, changed the station to "106.7 The Eagle," airing a Classic rockformat. By the mid 2000's, some current rock songs would be inserted into the format, with the station billing themselves as "The Rock of Green Bay."
Major changes would occur at the station in March 2007, as Cumulus changed the call letters to WZNN and dismissed the on-air staff. "The Eagle" ended on the night of March 5 when, after an hour of music from
The Eagles(ending with "Hotel California"), the station stunted [http://www.wisconsinbroadcasting.com/Format%20Change%20Files/WZNN%20Starts%20Stunting.mp3] with construction site noise. At precisely 1:06PM the next day (March 6), WZNN relaunched as "106-7 The Zone," with Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit" and Green Day's "Holiday" being the first 2 songs played. The flip to alternative rockwas an effort, Cumulus market manager Greg Jessen told the "Green Bay Press-Gazette", to set the station apart from (his terms) an "exceptionally crowded" "rock spectrum" (referring to WAPL, WOZZ, and other mainstream and classic rockstations in Northeast Wisconsin). Indeed, "The Zone" billed themselves as "Green Bay's only true alternative" during their launch.
As of April 2007, WZNN airs the syndicated "
Mancow's Morning Madhouse" program during morning drive time.
