WUZZ

WUZZ (94.3 FM) is a classic rock music formatted radio station in Saegertown, Pennsylvania and is branded as "Wuzz 94". WUZZ is simulcast with WUUZ 107.7 FM (licensed to Cooperstown), serving Titusville, Oil City, Franklin, and Tionesta. Until May 2007 this station was known as WHUZ.

History

Beginnings as WYSS-FM

WUZZ, the first of these two stations, first went on the air January 19, 1979 as WYSS. Though licensed to Saegertown, the station operated from Meadville (where it remains today), the seat of government from Crawford County, Pennsylvania, for its entire existence.

The call letters were changed from WYSS to WEOZ in 1983. WEOZ was then sold to Community First Broadcasting, a company headed by Werner Poegel, in August 1988 for $436,943.00. Community First Broadcasting maintained ownership of WEOZ until unforeseen circumstances forced the station to go dark in 1994.

The station returned the following year under a new set of call letters, a new owner, and a new format. Rechristened as WMDE, the station programmed a modern rock format under its new and current owner, Forever Broadcasting.

107.7 Signs On

Forever Broadcasting was issued a construction permit for a new "drop-in" frequency of 107.7 in Cooperstown. The permit was granted on September 11, 1997. The station signed on as WMHU September 7, 2000 as a simulcast outlet of WMDE. In March of the following year, the call letters were changed to WHUG, and the station became a simulcast outlet of WXXO and WOXX in Cambridge Springs and Franklin, duplicating the "Kiss" monikered adult contemporary programming offered on those two channels.

The station became what it is today on February 2, 2002 when its call sign was changed to WUUZ.

Current on air personalities include Steve and DC, Alice Cooper, Rockin' Rich, Reno, Ed Banger, Big Ben, Roxanne, Penny Lane, KAA / Keith Allen Austin, and Bill Saint James. Notable former on air personalities include Luke Rio, Cousin Buzz, Casey Summers, Ray Shade/Tommy Cruise, Jessie, Shane, Timmy Shaw, AJ, Teddy Mercury, Shawn Cassidy, Adam Cadabra, JR, Jared Garcia and Tye Dye.
