WROZ is 101.3 The Rose in Lancaster, Pennsylvania serving Lancaster, York and Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. They play recent adult contemporary music like Rob Thomas, The Fray, Daughtry, Gwen Stefani, Nickelback, and Sheryl Crow just to name a few. They position themselves as 101 The Rose "An Upbeat Variety of The 80s, 90s, and Today." They play mostly music from the 1980s, 1990s, and today. They can be considered a "Bright AC" playing more upbeat tunes than a "typical" AC station. This station ranks high in the Lancaster and York markets and is now considered "the number one at work radio station."


Weather Alerts

The Rose is one of three FM radio partners of WGAL-TV 8, in which any type of news or weather story comes to them via Channel 8. This is a high mark because WGAL is one of the most watched TV stations in the area and one of the most respected. WROZ is also the designated Emergency Alert System station for Lancaster County where all the emergency information such as tornado warnings airs on The Rose automatically.

Flashback Friday

Every Friday, they dedicate the airwaves to all 80's and early 90's with "Flashback Friday." On Friday, June 26 the station extended their Flashback feature to 24 hours (it would cut off at 7 pm on Fridays for the now-cancelled Delilah program). One weekend out of the month, they dedicate the whole weekend to the 1980s and 1990's with a "Flashback Weekend."

Movin' & Groovin' Saturday Night

On February 24, 2007, 101 The Rose debuted a new show called "Movin and Groovin Saturday Night" hosted by Michael C. Anthony. This show deals with dance hits and also heavy on disco music. It runs every Saturday Night from 9PM-12A.

Christmas Music

Every year, around mid-November they position themselves as "Central PA's Christmas Station, playing wall-to-wall holiday favorites to usher in the busy holiday season. The sounds of the seasons include standards, instrumentals, and contemporary favorites. They are consistently ranked high during this period and frequently get tons of advertisers to air their holiday ads on the air. Most frequent artists for the holiday season include Trans Siberian Orchestra, Amy Grant, Hanny Connick, Jr, Manhattan Transfer, and Jose Feliciano.

In 2009, the station has stated through a series of on-air commercials featuring Bill Baldwin, the station's General Manager, that Christmas music will not be played until the night of Thanksgiving at 6:00 PM. This was based on a survey that ran on the station's Web page.
