Yes, but, I don't think there was ever previously a WJZ radio in
Baltimore or a surrounding community. The original WJZ was in Newark
NJ and later in New York City. In fact, for a while, there was both a
WJZ (AM) and a WJZ-FM in New York City. Today, those stations are
Citadel's WABC (AM) and WPLJ (FM).
