WQBU-FM (92.7 FM, "Mami 92.7") is a radio station licensed to Garden City, New York and serves the western Long Island area. It broadcasts a Spanish tropical format and is owned by Univision's radio division.
92.7 FM went on the air in 1959 with the call letters WLIR and played Broadway tunes and classical music. In the early 1970s, the format shifted to progressive rock, then to modern rock in the 1980s. In 1987, the call sign changed to WDRE-FM, and in 1996 they went back to WLIR-FM. Univision bought the station in 2004 and became a multi-cast for "Latino Mix" WHBI 105.9 FM based in Newark, New Jersey.
In late January 2007, Univision ended the simulcast and changed the call sign to WQBU-FM.
On November 15, 2012 WQBU-FM changed their format to Spanish Tropical, branded as "Mami 92.7".
