WKAQ is a radio station in San Juan, Puerto Rico that broadcasts on 580 kHz with a Spanish language talk radio format. The station is currently owned by Univision Radio. Its programming is repeated on WUKQ, which broadcasts on 1420 kHz in Ponce, and WYEL which broadcasts on 600 kHz in Mayagüez. The station was the first radio station to broadcast in Puerto Rico.[1]

WKAQ's audio signal is simulcasting on WLII-DT (Univisión Puerto Rico) channel 11.3 and WSUR-DT channel 9.3.

WKAQ was owned for many years by Angel Ramos, owner of the El Mundo newspaper, and eventual namesake for WKAQ-TV, branded as Telemundo. The El Mundo operated until 1986 when labor strikes and acts of terrorism ended its operation.

On January 25, 2017, WKAQ has been granted an FCC construction permit to move to a new transmitter site, to decrease power to 2,500 watts.
