WSAQ is a country music radio station in Port Huron, Michigan known as Q Country 107. It began broadcasting August 7, 1964 on 107.1 MHz with 6,000 watts, and remains the same today. It broadcasts from the same site as AM 1450 WHLS. Q-Country plays modern country music along with some classics. WSAQ has an all local morning show and local news. The owner of WSAQ is Radio First, which owns four other stations in Saint Clair and Sanilac County.
WSAQ often interferes with WTLZ in Saginaw east of Imlay City and Lapeer, however with a rotational antenna both stations can be received in these areas.
In 1964, the station signed on for the first time as WHLS-FM. Featuring a simulcast of the AM station and then later a beautiful music format, it was soon renamed WSAQ, and adopted a country music format in spring 1982. In 2000 Hanson Communications sold 1590 WHLX, 1380 WPHM, and 96.9 WBTI to Liggett Communications. Liggett, who was also in the process of acquiring Hanson's competitor, WHLS-AM and WSAQ-FM, decided to co-locate all five stations at 808 Huron Street, which was the main base of operations for WHLS and WSAQ. All five stations now belong to Radio First, and have been since 2001.
