WQSL (92.3 FM), also known as "The Wolf", is an Country Music radio station licensed to Jacksonville, North Carolina. The station simulcasts on WQZL FM.

History[edit]

WQSL was "Q92" when it was Top 40 and then it was a Hot AC In the early 90s it was "Whistle 92.3". From 1995 to 2000 it was "All Hit 92.3" Then the station switched to Hip hop.[citation needed]

On April 30, 1997, Cumulus Broadcasting announced its purchase of WAAV, WWQQ, WXQR, and WQSL.[2]

WQSL was rhythmic CHR and its name was "The Beat of Carolina" until the end of 2006, at which time it changed to rhythmic adult contemporary with the name "The Party Station". At the end of 2007, WQSL changed to urban adult contemporary with The Touch format from ABC Radio Networks and the Rickey Smiley morning show.

On August 29, 2013, at 12 noon, the station flipped to a stunt of 60s-leaning classic hits as "Oldies 92" before flipping to an adult hits simulcast with WQZL as "92.3/101.1 Jack FM" at noon the following day.
