WQRS primarily broadcasts programming from ABC Radio Networks's "The Classic Rock Experience."
The station had been known as WQRT, branded as 98 Rocks, under the ownership of Michael Washington until the year 2006, when Washington sold the station to its current owners. The intention was to split WQRT into two stations, WQRS (Q Rock Salamanca) and WQRW (Q Rock Wellsville). However, when the station's only local jock, Scott Douglas, left for WESB/WBRR in 2007, those plans were dropped. The WQRW station was still built, but now airs a rhythmic adult contemporary format instead.
The WQRS call signs were previously heard on an classical music FM station in Detroit, Michigan.
