For Advertisers

At The Q (WQCT 96.5 FM/1520AM),  we play the best of pop, soul, and rock n’ roll from the mid to late `60s, the `70s, and the early to mid `80s. The Q plays feel-good music, hosted by outstanding personalities who talk about what’s timely and topical.

Our music mix features a broad blend of hits from the mid to late `60s, the `70s, and the early to mid `80s, delivered in an upbeat, adult presentation. The music mix appeals equally to the male and female audience of 35-64 adults. It’s the upscale adult audience advertisers want to connect with. The music is soft enough for background, but good enough to turn up and enjoy. It’s music that helps people feel good. It’s the perfect workplace format, but our listeners enjoy it at home and on weekends, too! The variety of tempos, styles, and music eras holds listeners hour after hour.

At the Q 96.5, it’s all about presenting Advertising in an environment that’s filled with the music that our audience remembers, and features that not only make the music the star while keeping the format fun, exciting, and fresh. The music mix and adult presentation offer a perfect platform for advertisers to feature their products and services on the air.

At WQCT 96.5/1520 AM, we present local news seven times each weekday, including 6am, 7am, 8am, 9am, 12noon, 4pm and 5pm. Our local weather reports are broadcast throughout the day to keep our listeners informed
