What is WCLZ?

WCLZ is a radio station unlike any other. In fact, it might be best described as the “anti-radio radio station” for the following reasons:

  • A music library containing thousands of songs spanning six decades of music including rock, blues, folk, country, Americana, jazz, and other genres you won’t hear anywhere else,
  • Strictly limited commercial breaks with special attention to message tone and style to best ensure format cohesion and optimal advertiser results,
  • On-air hosts who are less “disc jockey” and more “musicologist,” some of whom have been Portland radio staples for decades, like morning host Tim Wright and afternoon personality Jessie Brandon.
  • WCLZ spearheads a number of annual green initiatives and prides itself on being the first carbon neutral radio station in the U.S.
  • Our audience of passionate music lovers spans the globe and skews towards Men 35-54.
