Format Flips[edit]

Old WWIZ logo as Real Rock 104

On March 31, 2017 WWIZ began stunting with a loop of The Moody Blues' “Nights in White Satin” and The Royal Guardsmen's “Snoopy vs. the Red Baron”, with just a legal ID between the songs. The following day at Noon, the station flipped to classic hits as "Z104" using Westwood One's "Good Time Oldies" satellite feed.[1]

On October 25, 2019 WWIZ dropped its oldies format and began stunting with Christmas music, branded as "Christmas 104", garnering extra attention as it was the first station in the country to flip to Christmas music for the holiday season. It is currently unknown if the Oldies format will return after the holiday season ends.[2]
