Immediately, WRKZ found itself in a firestorm over the hiring of long-time WNNK-FM jock Bruce Bond, fired several months earlier by his former station. WNNK owner Cumulus sought a court order to remove Bond from the airwaves; after several months of legal wrangling, a September decision in the Cumberland County Court of Common Pleas ordered Bond off the airwaves to finish the remaining six months of his non-compete clause. He is scheduled to return to WRKZ's morning show in March 2003.
In December 2002, WRKZ changed course again, shifting from '80s pop to a blend of late '70s and early '80s rock hits, while retaining the Z102-3 moniker.
