About WZTV

WZTV aired its first broadcast on 5th August 1968 from its studio in West Nashville as the first UHF station and the first independent channel in the area. At that time, the broadcaster was known by the name of WMCV. The channel had hard times in its early days and went off-air on 10th March 1971. In 1974, Real Broadcasting purchased the station and resumed its operations, first changed the brand name to ZTV but later switched to Z17 (hence the current calls of the channel are WZTV).
