WQMF is a mainstream rock radio station located in Louisville, Kentucky. The station is licensed by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to the nearby city of Jeffersonville, Indiana and broadcasts on 95.7 FM with an effective radiated power (ERP) of 28.5 kW. The station's studios are located in the Louisville enclave of Watterson Park and the transmitter site is near Elizabeth, Indiana, west of the Ohio River. The station is owned by iHeartMedia, Inc..
In January 1981, WQHI was sold and the format was changed to Album Rock as "96 WQMF". Within a short period of time, QMF was successful in toppling WLRS as the top Album Rock station in the market. Many current well-known Louisville radio personalities appeared on the station. The early years consisted of Ron Clay and Terry Meiners on "The Show With No Name". After Meiners departed, Clay continued his morning run at QMF with "Uncle Ron's Asylum" until his death in 1991. QMF then hired LRS 102's alum Rocky Knight to launch "The Rocky & Troy Morning Show". Karen Bach-Markins, Duke Meyer, and Future Bob were also on QMF as well.
Their former mascot of WQMF was the Weasel, who had the same snickering laugh that Muttley Mutt had on some legendary Hanna-Barbera shows such as "Wacky Races", "Dastardly & Muttley In Their Flying Machines", "Yogi's Treasure Hunt", "Fender Bender 500", & "Yo Yogi!".
In the mid 1990s, WQMF switched to a classic rock format.
