WCIZ-FM (93.3 MHz) is a commercial radio station in Watertown, New York. It is owned by the Stephens Media Group and airs a classic hits radio format, which leans toward classic rock. Unlike some classic hits stations (for example: KLUV), WCIZ does not play pop or dance artists, such as Madonna, Michael Jackson or Gloria Estefan.

Around early 2000, the station changed formats from classic rock to classic hits. WCIZ-FM went on the air in the summer of 1988.[1] The station originally began broadcasting at 97.5 FM, later moving to 93.5 in 1997. It changed to its current frequency at 93.3 FM in 1999. Prior to WCIZ-FM's move to 93.5 from 97.5, the station was a CHR station known as WTNY-FM "T-93 FM" which began broadcasting in the 1980s.

WCIZ-FM is currently known as Z93 & has a line-up of local radio talent. DJs includes Jay Donovan in the morning drive time, Dianne Chase in Midday and Joe Munroe in afternoons. Z93 has a weekend show called the "Z93wind" hosted by Jeff Shannon, where Jeff revisits a specific year in pop music history, often highlighting local history.
