WINZ is a station which is regularly heard at Lista on 940 kHz, especially after the Montréal station CINW vacated the frequency in January 2010. WINZ was also heard at Lista in January 2011, but had lots of competition from the Mexican station XEQ “La Q 940” much of the time. Ken Charles, Director of AM Programming, confirmed my reception of WINZ with a brief e-mail. WINZ became my verified station number 800 in my QSL “collection”.
WINZ broadcasts with a night power of 10 kilowatts from their towers north of Miami. Currently, the station should be even easier to catch as its night power has been raised to 25 kilowatts under a special temporary authority. WINZ is a Fox Sports affiliate, but also covers local sports of course. The station dubbs itself “The Sports Animal” and has a pretty cool logo (see above).
