Alternative Returns To Wilkes-Barre/Scranton On WEZX-HD3 As ‘Fuzz 96.1’

July 10th, 2024

Times Shamrock Communications reboots Alternative WEZX-HD3 via two FM translators airing on WEZX-HD3 as “Fuzz 96.1” under OM/PD Mark Hoover. The Fuzz brand previously aired on WFUZ as Fuzz 92.1 from 2012-2017 and later rebranded to Alt 92.1 before flipping to AC in 2020.

Hoover said, “People have been asking me for years, what happened to Fuzz? I would always reply I miss it too, and after a few years we had the opportunity to bring it back.”

“Fuzz is a fan favorite in NEPA. With its return, we are happy to present this new distinct on-air brand”, added Times Shamrock CEO Jim Loftus. “Fuzz 96.1 compliments Rock 107, our iconic Classic Rock market leader with the market’s only Alternative Rock choice.”

The station is being consulted by longtime Milwaukee Radio Alliance Alternative WLUM (FM 102/1)/Milwaukee PD Michelle Rutkowski. Listen to Fuzz 96.1 HERE.
