Alton’s local radio station can now be heard almost anywhere. With the addition of an FM signal and streaming audio, The Big Z is now on multiple platforms. This continues the station management’s goal of expanding the availability of local content to the community.
WBGZ General Manager Sam Stemm tells The Big Z the launch of 94.3FM qualifies as the biggest improvement in the history of the station. The Alton station, which was known at the time as WOKZ, had an FM station from the mid 1960’s until 1979.
