WZPL (99.5 FM) is a radio station based in Greenfield, Indiana, and serving the Indianapolis metropolitan area. The station, known as "99-5 WZPL", airs an Adult Top 40 format. WZPL is owned by Entercom. The station signed on as WSMJ on June 1, 1962 and remained as such until the spring of 1979 when WSMJ was sold to Heftel Broadcasting. They changed to a disco music format and adopted the call sign WIKS-FM ("Kiss 99") on April 14, 1979. Later, a contemporary hit radio format was adopted which, aside from a brief experiment playing classic rock in 1989, has continued to this day, though in more of an adult-oriented direction. The WZPL call sign was adopted in April 1983, but over the years the station has referred to itself by various informal names, including "Z99.5", "Indy's Apple WZPL," "99_ WZPL," "99_ ZPL" and "Z99.5". Sister stations include WXNT and WNTR. The station features The Smiley Morning Show, hosted by Dave Smiley, weekday mornings.
