History

WAKS was a Country station in Fuquay-Varina, North Carolina. In the early 90s the station moved to Cary, North Carolina and began playing smooth jazz as WNND "The Wind".

After financial problems, WNND was sold to Clear Channel [1],[2] and switched to a classic hits format, with the call letters WZZU, previously used by what is now WKSL-FM. The current format began in October 1997 on WZZU and WDUR.[3]
