History

On October 24, 1954, the station signed on as WNTM.[3] It originally was a daytimer, required to leave the air at sunset every night. It was owned by Central Florida Broadcasting and had a power of 1,000 watts, days only. It was a rare station in that era to have a female president, Naomi T. Murrell. WNTM was a network affiliate of the Mutual Broadcasting System (MBS).

The station later changed its call sign to WAXE.[4][5]

Until July 2, 2020, WZTA had broadcast a talk radio format and carried syndicated programming from Premiere Networks and Fox News Radio. During evening and overnight hours from 7 pm to 5 am, the station played Adult Standards music.
