WQBR (99.9 FM) is a radio station broadcasting a Country/Americana music format. Licensed to Avis, Pennsylvania, United States, the station serves the Williamsport/Lock Haven/State College area, airing over substantial areas of Clinton, Lycoming and Centre Counties in Central Pennsylvania. Before the State College Arbitron ratings no longer were unavailable, the Bear was the only station that showed in both rating books. The area between Williamsport and State College is the defining line between the influence of Pittsburgh to the west, and Philadelphia to the east; no station had ever bridged those markets.

The station is owned by Maximum Impact Communications, Inc. and features news programming from AP Radio, some satellite music programming from the New Hit Country channel from Westwood One, and over 60 hours a week of local Americana music programming.[1][2]
