History[edit]

WJQZ, in Wellsville, NY, went on the air on February 3, 1986, at a frequency of 93.5FM. It was Allegany County's first commercial FM radio station. The station first broadcast with an operating power of 3,000 watts with its transmitter located on Madison Hill Road in Wellsville and its operating studios at 82 Railroad Avenue in Wellsville. The radio station originally presented an adult contemporary music format. The radio station was acquired on October 31, 1990, by Erin Communications, Inc. which eventually changed frequency from 93.5 to 103.5 and doubled its power. WJQZ was affiliated with ABC's Oldies Radio, and its successor network Classic Hits Radio, until that network was dissolved in the early 2010s.
