KRQN (107.1 FM) is a radio station broadcasting a Top 40 (CHR) music format, branded as "i107-1."[1] Licensed to Vinton, Iowa, United States, the station serves the Cedar Rapids, Iowa area. The station is currently owned by George S. Flinn, Jr. but is operated by Townsquare Media under a time brokerage agreement.[2]

Previously, KRQN had a classic hits format. On September 9th, 2011, at 1:07 PM, after stunting with clips of top 40 music and liners promoting that "the clock is ticking" and to "lock in a preset" and listen at said time, along with bell tolling sounds and people saying "I", 107.1 flipped to Top 40/CHR as i107-1. The first song on i107-1 was Party Rock Anthem by LMFAO. With this move, KRQN will take on the market's more established Top 40/CHR, KZIA.
