WVQM (101.3 FM) is a radio station broadcasting a News/Talk format and simulcasting co-owned WVOM-FM from Bangor, Maine. Licensed to Augusta, Maine, USA, the station serves the Augusta-Waterville area. The station is currently owned by Blueberry Broadcasting.[1]

History[edit]

The station went on the air as WFAU-FM in July 1961. On July 5, 1982, the station changed its call sign to WKCG.[2] Up until 1999 the station was a country formatted station, but that changed on March 1 when the station adopted the adult contemporary format vacated by then sister station WCTB. [1] On January 5, 2009 the station dropped the Star 101 imaging and the adult contemporary format for a simulcast of talk radio WVOM. WCME would pick up the adult contemporary format and the Star imaging before switching several months later to a simulcast of WTOS-FM. In February 2009, WKCG switched callsigns to WVQM, similar to its simulcast partner WVOM.
