WZWW (95.3 FM) is a music radio station licensed to Bellefonte, Pennsylvania, serving the State College area. It currently airs a hot adult contemporary format.

History

When State College's radio station formats shuffled in 2004, WZWW was one of the few FM stations that maintained its frequency. When the bars in State College tried to promote their respective businesses, they were confused as to which stations to hire.

On September 4, 2020, at 2PM, after teasing a relaunch with construction noises between songs the previous day, WZWW shifted from Adult Contemporary to Hot Adult Contemporary, keeping the "3WZ" name. The first song after the relaunch was "Good as Hell" by Lizzo.[1]

HD Radio

On May 8, 2022, the station's third HD subchannel, simulcast on translator W268BB (101.5 FM), launched with a loop of "Kernkraft 400" by Zombie Nation, branding a "We Are 101.5", tied into the association of the song with Penn State University football and their "We Are Penn State" chants, and will launch a new format at noon on May 13.[2] At the promised time, WZWW-HD3 launched an urban contemporary format, branded as "Loud 101.5", with the first song being "First Class" by Jack Harlow.[2]
