WZNE (94.1 FM) — branded The Zone @ 94.1 — is a modern rock commercial radio station in Brighton, New York, broadcasting to the Rochester, New York area.

WZNE serves as the Rochester affiliate of Rover's Morning Glory, a morning show originating from FM rock station WMMS (The Buzzard — 100.7 FM) in Cleveland, Ohio. Other programs include a daily 1990's themed segment called the "90's @ noon" hosted by Brody(11a-3p). Nik River's DJ's during the afternoon (3p-7p) and has a segment called Battle Zone. Zone After Dark is The Zone @ 94.1 night show with Giehl(7p-12am) as DJ. Sunday nights at 8pm The Zone has "Zone Grown" a local show hosted by Homeless Mark. Then there's Blumpkin.

When Entercom Communications closed on its purchase of WZNE and its cluster of sister stations from CBS Radio on November 30, 2007, the company ended up with eight FM radio stations in Rochester, which was three stations over the FCC-mandated single-market ownership limit of five FM radio stations in a medium-to-large radio market. As a result, Entercom put WZNE along with WFKL and WRMM-FM back on the market. In early May of 2008, the Stephens Media Group of Tulsa, Oklahoma agreed to purchase the three stations, subject to FCC regulatory approval. Shortly after the acquisition was announced, Stephens took over the operation of the three stations through a time-brokerage agreement. The deal closed on July 14, 2008.
