W252CV is an FM translator station that is licensed to and serving Bowling Green, Kentucky. Owned by Newberry Broadcasting, Inc., it broadcasts an Active rock format, and it is rebroadcast over WPTQ-HD2, a digital subchannel of WPTQ's HD radio signal.

History[edit]

This station began broadcasting on February 17, 2014 as a new active rock station, branded as 98.3 The Edge. The translator-style radio station's HD2 simulcast over WPTQ-HD2 makes WPTQ, which is licensed to Glasgow, the first radio station in the Bowling Green radio market to multi-cast their HD radio signal.[1] the effective radiated power is limited to 250 watts in order to avoid interference with WQXE in nearby Elizabethtown, Kentucky, which is also run at 98.3 Megahertz. As an active rock station, the station broadcasts rock hits from the 1980s, 1990s, 2000s, and the current decade, with only the biggest acts in rock and roll from the 1970s. The Local Show, which is now run on this station on Sunday nights at 7 p.m. C.T., is a local show showcasing local rock bands in southern Kentucky.[2] Both W252CV and WPTQ are currently the main competitors of Classic rock station WDNS.

Since February 2016, the programming of W252CV has also been simulcast at 100.1 Megahertz, on translator W261BD. That translator previously simulcast WKLX's signal. Later that year, the station also began to simulcast over translator W251BT in Glasgow over 98.1 Megahertz.
