WCTQ (106.5 FM) is a radio station broadcasting a country music format. Licensed to Sarasota, Florida, USA, it serves the Sarasota / Bradenton area. The station is currently owned by iHeartMedia, Inc.. In some car and truck radios, WCTQ kind of makes an exceptional interference from next door frequency Top 40 station, 106.7, WXXL, licensed to Tavares, but serving the Orlando area, just 92 miles northeast. The Plant City and New Tampa areas are affected the most with interference from both the 106.5 and 106.7 frequencies.
