Station origin[edit]

KTMQ launched in 2000 to simulcast the signal of 101.5 KGB, and was called KGBB at launch. The KGB signal is very weak in southern Riverside County, from where many San Diego-area workers now commute daily. In 2005, the signal broke off to become a local frequency. On February 14, 2011, Mötley Crüe's Nikki Sixx joined the KTMQ line up.
