KIXQ (102.5 FM, "KIX 102.5") is a country music formatted radio station licensed in Joplin, Missouri, and is owned by the Zimmer Radio, Inc. It is the third radio station in the four-state area to multicast in HD Radio.

KIXQ is simulcast on HD-1 KZRG is simulcated on HD-2.

KIXQ was part of the family-owned Zimmer Radio Group. The stations were sold in July 2007 to James Zimmer and he created a new company called Zimmer Radio, Inc.

In the early 90's the station had the call letters WMBH and was branded Z 103. The station then changed its call letters to KJKT and to a country music format known as Country KAT 102.5. During this time, KIXQ was on air at 93.9 FM (known as KIX 94). Once the stations were purchased by Zimmer Radio Group, this left them with 2 country music format stations. So, the decision was made to combine the 2 stations into 1 with the KIXQ call letters and "KIX" slogan at the 102.5 FM frequency. For a brief period, the same programming was simulcast on both stations and they were referred to as "KAT, and KIX 102.5." Once the transition was complete, 102.5 FM officially became KIX 102.5 and 93.9 FM flipped to an Adult Contemporary station known as Magic 93.9 with the call letters KJMK.
