WZRC, on 1480 kHz, is a radio station owned by Multicultural Radio Broadcasting, Inc. and serves the New York City area by running Cantonese program. This station started out as WHOM and was founded in 1930 by the New Jersey Broadcasting Corp. In December 1992 WZRC shortly switched to classic country through a satellite delivered service. But that February WZRC switched to a Korean brokered programming. Infinity continued to own the radio station until after its merger with CBS. At that point it owned 92.3 WXRK, 101.1 WCBS-FM, 102.7 WNEW-FM, 660 WFAN, 880 WCBS, 1010 WINS, and 1480 WZRC. While it was not required to sell WZRC it opted to anyhow and sold the station in 1998 to Multicultural Media. Multicultural kept the Korean format but after a few years, in 2002, switched to Chinese and now in Cantonese (to complement Multicultural's Sinocast network broadcast locally on 92.3 FM subcarrier).
