History

The station originally signed on under the call sign WINT-FM, on September 20, 2001, and branded itself 95.9 The Point. At the time, the station featured a big band and adult standards format. In 2003, WINT changed its call sign to WSJZ, to reflect its new smooth jazz format, and became known as Smooth Jazz 95.9. On April 1, 2004, the station changed to a classic and alternative rock format, calling itself as Pirate 95.9. On September 3, 2009, WSJZ-FM became the new ESPN Radio network affiliate for the Space Coast, featuring a sports radio format, and rebranding itself as ESPN 95.9. Before then, the Space Coast's ESPN Radio affiliate was sister station WINT (now WLZR) on AM 1560 in Melbourne. That station is now a CBS Sports Radio affiliate.

On April 1, 2015 at 6 pm, WSJZ changed its format from sports to active rock, branded as "95 Rock", but it still had its former Sports radio logo on the iHeartRadio app. On February 1, 2016, the station dropped the active rock format, in favor of a classic rock.

On May 31, 2016, WSJZ changed its call letters to WROK-FM.
