History[edit]

The station was known as Star 103 with a contemporary hits format until April 2005 when it changed to Talk as "BC103". That format and branding lasted until September 2006 when a Hot AC format was launched as "103.1 The Spot." In late 2008, WMBC changed calls to WNMQ and became Top 40 "All the Hits Q103."[2]

On August 16, 2010 WNMQ changed their format to sports, branded as "The Team". On January 2, 2013 WNMQ switched affiliations from ESPN Radio to CBS Sports Radio.
