The station was originally licensed to Magnolia, Arkansas as KFMV on 107.9 MHz.Cumulus Media bought the station and tried to move the station into the Shreveport market, by moving the station's city of license to Oil City, Louisiana. However the station's transmitter on 107.9 MHz from its new location caused interference with air traffic control at Barksdale Air Force Base and was forced off the air by the military and FCC. Ultimately the station's frequency was moved to 97.3 MHz and the city of license is now Waskom, Texas. The transmitter is located near downtown Shreveport on a landmark non-supported structure nicknamed Eiffel Tower. KQHN-FM transmit facilities are collocated with KVMA-FM, KMJJ-FM and KRMD-AM with KRMD-FM auxiliary site. Although the transmitter location is located in Shreveport, the city of license is for Waskom, Texas, and serves the Ark-La-Tex area.
