Some station history:
In 1981 WFBZ AM 1570 signed on. The programming featured Big Band Era Music. In 1982 WFBZ simulcast with WWMH until 1985 when it split off once again and was renamed WMYM. We Make Your Memories with a nostalgia format.
In 1982 96FM signed on playing Adult Contemporary music and focusing on local news and sports. In 1984 the station won "Best Small Market Radio of the Year" from the Wisconsin Broadcaster's Association.
In 1992 WWMH and WMYM became WMQA. The "MQA" in our call letters are a shortening of our city of license, MINOCQUA. At the same time the power was increased from 5,000 watts to the current 25,000 watts. In 1995 the AM station became WLKD and went back to a nostalgia format until 2004 when the programming shifted to ESPN Radio.
