KQXL-FM (106.5 FM, "Q106.5") is an Urban Adult Contemporary music formatted radio station serving the Baton Rouge, Louisiana, area. The Cumulus Media station operates with an effective radiated power (ERP) of 50 kW and is licensed to New Roads, Louisiana. Its studios are located downtown and the transmitter tower is located just north of Baton Rouge between the suburbs of Baker and Zachary.


KQXL, which signed on as a Mainstream Urban in 1979 and was originally at 106.3 until a power upgrade in 1988, began its evolution into its current format in 1997 after it was paired with former competitor WEMX-FM.
