About WDZZ

WDZZ-FM (92.7 FM, 'Z92.7') is a radio station broadcasting an urban adult contemporary format, licensed to Flint, Michigan. WDZZ was founded by Vernon Merritt in 1979 as the Flint area's first FM station to target African-American audiences, playing a mixture of disco music and jazz which eventually evolved into mainstream Urban Contemporary. It is believed that the call letters were a tribute to the song 'Dazz' by the group Brick; 'Dazz' was an amalgamation of 'disco' and 'jazz'. Before the signon of 92.7, WAMM 1420 now WFLT served as Flint's Rhythm & Blues Station, with its only competition being Saginaw's WWWS which did not provide a clear signal over much of the Flint area.
