WQBU-FM (92.7 FM, "Que Buena 92.7") is a radio station licensed to Garden City, New York and serving the western Long Island and New York City area. It broadcasts a Spanish language adult contemporary music format and is owned by Uforia Audio Network. The station's transmitter is located at the North Shore Towers in Floral Park, New York.

History

92.7 FM went on the air on October 28, 1959 as WLIR[2] and played Broadway show tunes and classical music. In the early 1970s, the format shifted to progressive rock, then to modern rock in the 1980s. In 1987, the call sign changed to WDRE-FM, and in 1996 reverted to WLIR-FM. Univision purchased the station in 2004 and simulcast "Latino Mix" WCAA 105.9 FM licensed to Newark, New Jersey (WCAA would later move to 96.3 FM as the result of a frequency swap with classical music station WQXR).

On Memorial Day 2005, both stations became "La Kalle," a reggaeton-formatted station. The station at 105.9 became WCAA and 92.7 became WZAA.

In late January 2007, Univision ended the simulcast and changed the call sign to WQBU-FM.

In March 2007, the station announced that they would become the Spanish-language home of the New York Yankees, with Beto Villa as the play-by-play announcer.[3]

In 2010, the station became the Spanish language home of the New York Mets, with Juan Alicea and Max Perez Jimenez with the calls.[4]

On November 15, 2012, WQBU-FM changed their format to Spanish Tropical, branded as "Mami 92.7".[5]

On March 31, 2014, WQBU-FM switched to a news/talk format nationally syndicated by Univision America. This makes it the 10th station overall and the first FM station in Univision's portfolio to have the Univision America network.[6]

On October 22, 2014, WQBU-FM changed their format to Regional Mexican, branded as "92.7 Nueva York".[7]

In March 2016, WQBU-FM rebranded as "Que Buena 92.7".

On August 2, 2019, WQBU-FM changed their format from Regional Mexican to Spanish AC, due to 93.1 Amor having dropped the Spanish AC format in the spring of 2018 in favor of Bachata Music.[8]
