WEII (96.3 FM, "SportsRadio 96.3") is a radio station in Dennis, Massachusetts. The station airs a sports radio format from WEEI.

The station started life in 1981 under the call letters WNTX. The station's most popular format under these calls was "Oldies 96", competing with the larger "Oldies 103" in Boston. The station flipped to CHR in January 1993, 4 months after longtime mainstay "Cape 104" switched from CHR to Oldies. It was then that the station received its most popular identity and calls as "96.3 The Rose" WRZE. WRZE was well known for its morning show "Dan & Stephanie in the Morning" (now heard on sister station WCOD-FM). Although The Rose aired a top 40 format, starting in 2004 they tended to focus mostly on hip-hop and R&B and stopped adding most rock and pop rock hits to their library (although there were occasional exceptions). Musicians heard on the Rose included Akon, Justin Timberlake, and Fergie. Disc jockeys include Steve McVie, David Duran, and Ricky B. Syndicated programs aired on the Rose included Rick Dees and the weekly top 40 and Open House Party.

On March 25, 2009 (though the changeover was originally announced for April 1[1]), WRZE flipped format again, becoming a simulcast of popular Boston AM Sports Radio station WEEI.
