From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

KRQK (100.3 MHz, "La Ley") is a commercial FM radio station that is licensed to Lompoc, California, United States and serves the Santa Maria-Lompoc area. The station is owned by American General Media and broadcasts a regional Mexican music format.


KRQK was signed on December 18, 1979 at the 100.9 MHz frequency by Sunshine Wireless of California, broadcasting a top 40 format.[1] In 1985, Sunshine Wireless sold KRQK and its AM sister station KLLB (1410 AM) to Crystal Broadcasting Inc. for $1.75 million.[2]

In January 1989, then-rock formatted KRQK applied to the Federal Communications Commission to change frequencies to 100.3 FM; the request was granted the following year.[3][4] On December 22, 1989, Crystal Broadcasting sold KRQK and its counterpart, then known as KTME, to Nova Broadcasting-Santa Maria, headed by Gregg Peterson, for $1.47 million.[5] The station pair changed hands once again in May 1993, when Nova Broadcasting sold the combo to Padre Serra Communications for $450,000.[6] The new owner then flipped KRQK to a regional Mexican format.

In September 1999, Padre Serra sold KRQK to Bakersfield, California-based American General Media for $1.3 million.[7]

Transmission issues

On January 18, 2010, at 11:30 a.m., high winds in the Santa Maria area triggered a power outage that knocked several stations off the air, including KRQK. The station resumed broadcasting one hour later under generator power.[8]
