KMAQ is an American radio station, licensed to operate at AM 1320 and FM 95.1 from Maquoketa, Iowa. Both stations simulcast each other for about half the broadcast day.[citation needed] The KMAQ AM-FM studios are downtown at 129 North Main Street. Both share the same transmitter site, northeast of town on 233rd Road.

KMAQ is the area's only locally owned and operated radio station, with no out-of-market consultant or ownership, programmed to the needs of its community. It bears the distinction of being one of a handful of radio stations across the country today with a live, local, real-time on-air staff.[citation needed]

Staff[edit]

KMAQ has the distinction of having an all-female sales force, with the exception of its sales manager Leighton Hepker, who also serves as station manager.[citation needed]
