KTMQ, known on air as 103.3 The Q, is an active rock radio station that serves the Temecula, California, area.


Program director Michael Dellinger a/k/a Mikie started as the mid-day host from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Pacific time. Dellinger plays modern rock and alternative music in addition to classic rock. He has now taken over as morning show host as of November 2012. KTMQ aired the Dave, Shelly, and Chainsaw morning show, which originated from 101.5 KGB in San Diego until its cancellation in January 2010. "Mikie" continues to host his "ALL REQUEST LUNCHBOX" during the morning/mid days.

KTMQ also used to air San Diego Chargers games.

Station origin[edit]

KTMQ launched in 2000 to simulcast the signal of 101.5 KGB, and was called KGBB at launch. The KGB signal is very weak in southern Riverside County, from where many San Diego-area workers now commute daily. In 2005, the signal broke off to become a local station. On February 14, 2011, Mötley Crüe's Nikki Sixx joined the KTMQ line up.
