WQXQ (101.9 FM) is a radio station broadcasting a Sports talk radio format. Licensed to Central City, Kentucky, United States, the station serves the Central City; the Owensboro, Kentucky; and the Evansville, Indiana, areas. The station is currently owned by Radio Active Media, Inc. WQXQ is considered a "Heritage Broadcast Station."


Call letters

The call letters WQXQ were previously assigned to an FM station in New York City in the 1940s. It was a sister station to WQXR (now WFME), operating on 96.3 MHz.[1]

Station history

As an FM simulcast

The station signed on the air as WNES-FM on December 18, 1956.[2] The station began as a simulcast of WNES-AM for the FM station's first 23 years and four months on the air. It began broadcasting beautiful music as a separate station on April 23, 1980.

First Hot AC attempt and Country format (1981–1993)

On December 1, 1981, the station switched to a Hot AC format and changed the call letters to WKYA. The radio station employed local radio talent during this period and experienced a great deal of success,[3] but head-to-head competition with "Hot AC" giant WSTO (96-STO) based at that time in Owensboro took its toll on the station. So after a slow down in listenership and sales, "KY-102" ceased to exist and it changed its format to Country Music in 1989–90. From that point on, it called itself "K-Country KY-102". This was successful for a period of time until another Owensboro station, in this case being WBKR, clamped down on the market by increasing their transmitter's effective radiated power.

New Hot AC era (1993–2013)

On February 23, 1993, WKYA discontinued their country format and changed the call letters to the current WQXQ.[4] The WKYA calls have been reassigned to an Oldies formatted station broadcasting at 105.5 MHz in Greenville, located not too far southwest of Central City.

A new tower was built in northern Ohio County near Pleasant Ridge, and the station returned to a more "Hot AC" style format featuring a local talent in the morning and then satellite powered broadcast for the rest of the day. .

After being branded as "Q-101.9 FM" for a time during the mid and late-2000s, the branding changed to "Q-102" around 2011, and the format was changed to a CHR/Top 40 format, which mostly included new music.

Sports format (2013–present)

In October 2013, WQXQ switched to a sports radio format after becoming an affiliate of Fox Sports Radio. Hence, the station was rebranded as Fox Sports Radio WQXQ.

The studios are located in Central City inside the same building they've been located in since their inception. All broadcasting originates from their studio in Central City. The studios are located south of downtown Central City in the Leader-News Weekly Newspaper office along 1730 West Everly Brothers Boulevard. The tower now acts as the "STL Broadcast Tower" which relays the signal to the main tower in Ohio County located on the Daviess County/Ohio County line.

Coverage area

WQXQ is a full 100,000 watt station. It can be heard about 80 miles away in every direction from the tower site in northern Ohio County. The coverage area includes much of the Pennyrile region of western and west-central Kentucky, and much of southern Indiana. The signal reaches several areas within the signal range, including all three major cities in the Evansville Tri-state area, and can reach as far east as the Elizabethtown/Fort Knox and the Cave City and Mammoth Cave National Park areas, and some far western suburbs of Louisville. It can also reach as far south as Bowling Green, Springfield, Tennessee and the northern suburbs of Clarksville, Tennessee, as far north as an area halfway between Evansville and Bloomington, Indiana, and as far west as Gallatin and Hardin Counties in Illinois and Crittenden County, Kentucky.[5] WQXQ has a 100,000 watt signal coverage in the Owensboro area.
