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. 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.
