WNZF is a news-talk radio station, licensed to Bunnell, the county seat of Flagler County in Northeast Florida, which signed on August 18, 2008. The call sign stands for "News-Flagler." It is rebroadcast on FM translator W292DE on 106.3 MHz.

The station airs a local morning show, Wake Up Flagler, weekdays from 7-9:00, and a live discussion show, Open Line at 9, from 9-10:00 as well as Flagler Palm Coast High School football. WNZF is an affiliate of the ABC Radio Network. It also broadcasts programs featuring Laura Ingraham, Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity, Mark Levin, Dave Ramsey, and Fox Sports.

WNZF is licensed to Flagler County Broadcasting, LLC, which is owned by James Martin and Gary Smithwick. Martin has owned and operated more than 20 radio stations. Smithwick is a Washington communications attorney who has participated in ownership of five radio stations in Florida with Martin. Smithwick was also president and part owner of a television station.

WNZF was the first commercial radio station licensed to serve Flagler County. Flagler County Broadcasting, LLC, also owns FM Station WBHQ-Beverly Beach, Florida, which is broadcast on 92.7 MHz. WNZF and WBHQ operate from the same studio complex in Bunnell. WNZF is also broadcast on WBHQ-HD2. On May 23, 2012, Flagler County Broadcasting acquired the construction permit for WPLC(FM), 98.7 MHz, Palm Coast, Florida, from Joyner Radio, Inc. On May 25, 2012, the FCC granted Flagler County Broadcasting a construction permit to locate the station's transmitter at the same site where WBHQ is located. This permits both stations to remain operational in the event of a weather emergency, as the transmitter site is equipped with a backup generator. 98.7 began operation as WAKZ on August 1, 2012, with a country music format.

W292DE is an FM repeater that serves as WNZF's FM signal, whose signal serves Bunnell and most of Flagler County. The repeater's license was first issued as W292DE to Radio Assist Ministry on September 7, 2004, with its city of license in Pierson. On August 31, 2007, the callsign was changed to W293BF as then-owner Reach Communications was approved to move the station to 106.5 MHz. It reverted to its old callsign and frequency on May 15, 2008 when it moved back to 106.3 MHz. Five days later, its community of license changed from Pierson to Bunnell.


The station signed on August 18, 2008. Prior to that, it was a construction permit issued to Flag Radio carrying the call WAYI followed by the current WNZF after its sale to Flagler County Broadcasting, LLC. WNZF's application for program test authority was granted on August 18, 2008. Its license to cover was granted on November 10, 2008.
