History

WJQZ in Wellsville, NY went on the air at 5AM February 3, 1986 at a frequency of 93.5FM. It was Allegany County's first commercial FM radio station. The founders and owners of WJQZ were Michael T. Baldwin and G. Robert Weigand. The station first broadcast with an operating power of 3,000 watts with its transmitter located on Madison Hill Road in Wellsville and its operating studios at 82 Railroad Avenue in Wellsville. Discussion of creating the radio station first began in March 1984 and its construction permit was granted by the FCC on April 15, 1985. The call letters of WJQZ have no particular meaning. The radio station originally presented with an adult contemporary music format. The first AM drive announcer was Michael Baldwin and the first song ever heard on WJQZ was The Carpenters, "We've only just begun." After a great run, the radio station was sold on October 31, 1990 to Erin Communications, Inc. which eventually changed frequency from 93.5 to 103.5 and doubled its power.
