WNUQ (branded as "102.1 Nash Icon") is a radio station serving Albany, Georgia and surrounding cities. This station broadcasts on FM frequency 102.1 MHz and is under ownership of Cumulus Media.

History[edit]

WNUQ's former logo used until August 2014.

From its official launch in March 1999 through most of 2006 WNUQ was on 101.7 MHz and was known as Q101. The entire time it was broadcasting as "Q101" it did so under a single program director Jason/J.B. Savage. From 2006-2014, it was Top 40/CHR as "Q102".

On August 15, 2014, at 3 PM, WNUQ flipped to country, becoming one of the first "Nash Icon" affiliates as "102.1 Nash Icon".[1]

On March 27, 2018, WNUQ and three other Cumulus stations (KJMO, WPCK, and WTOD) are placed into the Cumulus Reorganization Divestiture Trust for a future sale. [2]
