WDZZ-FM (92.7 FM, "Z92.7") is a radio station broadcasting an urban adult contemporary format, licensed to Flint, Michigan. WDZZ was founded by Vernon Merritt in 1979 as the Flint area's first FM station to target African-American audiences, playing a mixture of disco music and jazz which eventually evolved into mainstream Urban Contemporary. It is believed that the call letters were a tribute to the song "Dazz" by the group Brick; "Dazz" was an amalgamation of "disco" and "jazz". WDZZ has gone through several R&B formats including Mainstream Urban (including rap and hip-hop tracks) and Gospel on Sunday Mornings. The station is licensed for and formerly broadcast in HD Radio, the only one of Cumulus Media's Flint stations to do so. The station no longer broadcasts in HD as of March 2012 despite the station's RDS readout continuing to show as "WDZZ-HD". In 1998 WDZZ, WWCK, and WRSR were sold from Connoisseur to Cumulus Media.
