In the past, WQWK broadcast on this frequency. 97.1 QWK Rock was extremely popular and was usually ranked high in area ratings. However, hampered by a weak signal in areas such as Philipsburg and Altoona, WQWK moved to 98.7, and to 103.1. in 2006. The calls were eventually moved to ESPN Radio 1450 when QWK Rock went off the air in favor of an all talk format.
