WRZX (1400 AM) is a radio station broadcasting as an affiliate of Fox Sports Radio. Until January 2009, then-WCOH played a classic country format. Licensed to Newnan, Georgia, United States, it serves the Atlanta area. The station is currently owned by iHeartMedia, Inc. as part of the Newnan cluster with WMGP 98.1 and WGST 720, but operated separately from the Atlanta cluster.

Prior to 2009, WRZH (then WCOH) aired a classic country format branded simply as "1400 WCOH." The WCOH callsign stood for City Of Homes which is Newnan's slogan for being home to many old homes from the Civil War era.

On March 26, 2021, the station's tower collapsed in an EF4 tornado that had went through Newnan early that morning. Because the station had no backup site, the station stayed off-air for a few weeks before placing a crank-up tower in the front of the iHeartMedia Newnan/WCOH transmitter site to temporarily transmit from. As of October, the station is still using the crank-up tower, and has not yet rebuilt the tower.

In July 2021, the station changed its callsign to WRZX; retiring the 74 year old heritage WCOH callsign.
