WPTQ broadcasts a classic rock music format to the Bowling Green, Kentucky, area.[1] The format features classic rock songs from the 60s, 70s & 80s, as well as select Active Rock songs from the 90s and 00s. In addition to its usual music programming, WPTQ-FM is an affiliate of the Tennessee Titans football radio network.[2] It is also the flagship radio station for Western Kentucky University football.

On October 22, 2012 WPTQ and its mainstream rock format moved from 103.7 FM Cave City, KY to 105.3 FM Glasgow, KY, while the 103.7 FM frequency has picked up the WHHT calls and switched its format to Country, and rebranded the Station as HOWDY 103.7.[3]
