KSEQ is a commercial radio station located in Fresno, California, broadcasting to the Fresno, California and Visalia, California, areas on 97.1 FM. KSEQ airs a rhythmic Top 40 music format branded as "Q97.1". Its studios are located just north of downtown Fresno, and the transmitter tower is on Eshom Point.
KSEQ broadcasts out of downtown Fresno, CA and has dominated the Fresno, CA Market for over a decade. KSEQ's main competitor is KBOS, which has been the heritage CHR station in the market for almost 30 years.
Musically, KSEQ has always shifted and capitalized on the current state of the CHR format each year. In January 2009, KSEQ began heavily separating itself from KBOS with artists like Lady Gaga, Black Eyed Peas, Beyoncé, and Mariah Carey. This musical shift has helped KSEQ maintain its competitive edge and has also been more 'client friendly' in the market.
Notable Past DJ's Include: Rik McNeil, JoJo Lopez, Mikey Freeman, Uzette Salazar, Dee Cortez, AJ, Your Boy Q, Ragin' Asian, Bennie Siegal, Danny P, Marina, Loco Huero, DJ Lace, and PK's Playhouse.
In May of 2012, KSEQ/Q97 welcomed Big Boy's Neighborhood to the morning show and added market veteran Erik "Danny" Salas to the Afternoon Drive.
On September 9, 2013, KSEQ/Q97 welcomed former program director for KBOS Greg Hoffman and Comedian Andre Covington (also formerly of KBOS) to the morning show time slot that replaced Big Boy's Neighborhood. The new morning show is called the "Greg and Dre Morning Show".
On December 2014, KSEQ/Q971 welcomed 12 year veteran at KBOS DJ Erb who now mixes the Drive at 5 Mix and is the current Music/Imaging Director.
