KQXX-FM (105.5 FM, Kiss FM 105.5 & 106.3) is a radio station broadcasting a hot adult contemporary music format, simulcasting its sister station KHKZ.[1] Licensed to Mission, Texas, USA, the station serves the McAllen-Brownsville-Harlingen area. The station is currently owned by iHeartMedia[2] It shares a studio with its sister stations, KHKZ, KBFM, KTEX, and KVNS, located close to the KRGV-TV studios in Weslaco, Texas, while its transmitter is located in Mission, Texas. On November 27, 2015, the station dropped the classic rock format and began stunting an all Christmas music format. The Christmas music stunt format ended on December 25, 2015 at 6 PM (CST), when KQXX-FM became a simulcast of KHKZ and rebranded as Kiss FM 105.5 & 106.3, in order to cover the entire Rio Grande Valley. The simulcast was most likely due to 106.3 FM's signal (which covers most of the Lower Valley), being too difficult to hear in the Upper Valley. However, despite the flip to a simulcast of KHKZ, the station was still listed in the Classic Rock panel via Mediabase until January 8, 2015, when it was officially moved to the Hot AC panel. As of June 2016, the station was no longer listed on Mediabase.
