WQBT (94.1 FM), known as "94.1 The Beat", is an Urban Contemporary radio station targeted towards Savannah, Georgia. It is owned by iHeartMedia, Inc.. Its studios are located in Garden City (with a Savannah address) and utilizes a transmitter located west of Savannah in unincorporated Chatham County.
The station had controversial morning hosts Star and Buc Wild—which replaced Russ Parr in the morning slot. Parr's show has since returned to WQBT's morning drive time slot, but as of 2016, it is now home to The Breakfast Club.
Before the mid-1970s, the station was a simulcast of WTOC (AM), and had the callsign of WTOC-FM. Before it was an Urban Contemporary formatted station, it had a long stint as a country music formatted station to compete with daytimer WEAS. In the late '80s and early '90s, the callsign WCHY was part of the station's identity as a country station ("WCHY 94.1 Continuous Country"; the station would sometimes refer to itself as "Y-94".), thus the callsign's creation, as at that time it stood for We're Country Hits Y'all.
Later, this station was WSCA-FM - "Cat Country 94."
