WDZN is a Children's formatted broadcast radio station licensed to Romney, West Virginia, serving the Romney/Cumberland area. WDZN is owned and operated by Grandview Media, LLC.

History

WDZN was formerly WJJB-FM and played an Adult Contemporary format under the name "Jib 100". Their top-of-the-hour ID, would be as follows, "WJJB-FM...Romney, West Virginia..." followed by the striking of a ship's bell which would tell the time at that hour. The "Jib" name and the bells on-the-hour due in part to the owner, at that time, being a former sailor. WJJB switched their call letters to WDZN and their format to Radio Disney on September 4, 1998.

WDZN broadcasts on translator W260BP, on 99.9 FM, for Downtown Cumberland, where WDZN's main signal is blocked by the many hills.

WDZN was owned by Charter Equities, Inc. until March 2007 when it was sold to Grandview Media, LLC. WDZN's studios are located in Downtown Cumberland.
