  • WMMS (100.7 FM) – branded 100.7 WMMS: The Buzzard – is a commercial radio station licensed to Cleveland, Ohio, serving Greater Cleveland and much of surrounding Northeast Ohio. Widely regarded as one of the most influential rock stations in America throughout its history, the station has also drawn controversy for unusually aggressive tactics both on and off the air. Owned by iHeartMedia, Inc., and broadcasting a mix of active rock and hot talk, WMMS serves as the flagship station for Rover's Morning Glory, the Cleveland affiliate for The House of Hair with Dee Snider, and the home of radio personality Alan Cox. The station also serves as the FM flagship for the Cleveland Cavaliers and Cleveland Indians radio networks. Besides a standard analog transmission, WMMS broadcasts over two HD Radio channels, and is available online via iHeartRadio. The HD2 digital subchannel, which airs alternative rock under the brand 99X, serves as the local affiliate for Sixx Sense with Nikki Sixx, and serves as the radio home of the Cleveland Monsters. WMMS-HD2 also simulcasts over Cleveland translator W256BT (99.1 FM). The WMMS studios are located at the former Centerior Energy building in the Cleveland suburb of Independence, while the station transmitter resides in neighboring Seven Hills. The WMMS call letters first referred to an owner – "MetroMedia Stereo" – but have since taken on a variety of other meanings. (en)

  • "Born to Run" was the essence of everything I loved about rock 'n' roll. Bruce held on to the innocence and the romance. At the same time, the music communicates frustration and a constant longing to escape.
  • We joked about the Buzzard becoming Cleveland's Mickey Mouse... a "Buzzard Land" amusement park filled with sex, drugs and rock and roll...
