KRQN (107.1 FM) is a radio station broadcasting a Top 40 (CHR) music format, branded as "i107-1."[1] Licensed to Vinton, Iowa, USA, the station serves the Cedar Rapids, Iowa area. The station is currently owned by George S. Flinn, Jr. but is operated by Townsquare Media under a time brokerage agreement.[2]

Previously, KRQN had a classic hits format. On September 9th, 2011, at 1:07 PM, after stunting with clips of top 40 music and liners promoting that "the clock is ticking" and to "lock in a preset" and listen at said time, along with bell tolling sounds and people saying "I", 107.1 flipped to Top 40/CHR as i107-1. The first song on i107-1 was Party Rock Anthem by LMFAO. With this move, KRQN will take on the market's more established Top 40/CHR, KZIA.
