- This station dates back
to a low power analog translator that first signed on in May of 1994
on channel 14, as W14BV. In the year 2000 the station moved to
channel 61 (as W61DH). The station later applied for channel 53,
before being pushed to channel 34 as part of the repacking plan with
the advent of digital television. The station achieved Class A
status in 2003, and took on the WFRZ-CA calls to reflect that.
At this point, the station was running 20 kW (and later, nearly 30 kW)
on channel 34. In 2007 the station opted to flash-cut to digital
on their existing channel; the digital facility was finally put on the
air in February 2009. More information is available on the
station's Wikipedia page.
The station began operating at low power at the end of March 2018 due
to transmitter issues, and received an STA extension in November 2018
to keep operating at low power.
