KOQL "Q 106.1" is a Top 40-formatted station owned by Cumulus Media. The station broadcasts from Columbia, Missouri, with an ERP of 69,000 kW. The station serves Central Missouri. Its transmitter is located about 20 miles west of Jefferson City.
The station uses the following slogans:
- "Your 20 in-a-row hit music channel"
- "All the hits"
On March 21, 2003, from 8:10 a.m. to 8:15 a.m., former morning show hosts Cosmo & JC aired a prank phone call between the radio station and Life Crisis Services, a gambling addiction hot line. The FCC complaint stated that the radio station personality pretended to have a legitimate gambling problem. Once the representative from Life Crisis realized it was a prank phone call, she hung up.
The station did not inform the hot line the call was for broadcast, which is a violation of Federal Communication Commission (FCC) law Section 73.1206. On April 4, 2003, Mid-Missouri Broadcasting made an official on-air apology to Life Crisis and provided a link on its website for its services, but even so, on November 23, 2004, the FCC fined Mid-Missouri Broadcasting $4000.
Mid-Missouri Broadcasting later sold the station along with others to Cumulus Media.
