History of "The New" WZCC
From John Elliott, CEO of Suncoast Radio, Inc.
The station returned to the air on March 5, 2010 after being silent for nearly a year. The new format is oldies. The new branding is "The Music of Our Generation"
John Elliot tells us a bit about himself. "...Started in radio in 1964 as a high school student at WBEX(AM/FM) in Chillicothe, Ohio.  Worked at WIOI(-AM 1010) in Portsmouth, OH, WCOL(-AM 1230)  in Columbus, OH, WSAR(-AM 1480) in Fall River, Mass., WBSR(-AM 1450) in Pensacola, K-POI AM 1380 (the original Poi Boys station, NOT 98Rock KPOI-FM) and KKUA in Honolulu, HI, and after a several year break from radio and a move back to Florida, hosted the "Nostalgia Zone Oldies Show" on WTAN(-AM 1340) in Clearwater 2008-2009.  I was also an actor on several television series filmed in Hawaii: Hawaii 5-0, Magnum PI, and many less memorable shows (anyone remember "Jake and the Fatman in Hawaii"???) 
WZCC began broadcasting under Suncoast Radio on March 5, 2010. Prior to that the station had been off the air for nearly a year.  Long time residents may remember the station as WDFL, WYNY, and other call signs under previous owners throughout the years. John Elliott and wife Pat purchased the station in February with the goal of creating a community radio station for Cross City and surrounding areas. The studio is located in the Dixie County Advocate newspaper building at 174 NE 351 Highway in Cross City. Our tower is located on SW 351 Highway just outside the city limits.  Suncoast Radio, Inc. is headquartered in Palm Harbor in Pinellas County.
