Like many FM stations in the 1960s, KBEQ served as a counterpart to an AM station. Starting in 1960, KBEY (as it was called) continued to play big band and easy listening music when KBEA (at 1480 kHz) powered down at night. In 1973, with the growing popularity of FM radio, KBEQ debuted and gradually chipped at AM powerhouse WHB's longtime popularity. Many deejays would take their turn playing hits at Q-104's Country Club Plaza studios, including Bobby Day and Randy Miller. Fending off other FM upstarts, KBEQ achieved Top-40 dominance in Kansas City when WHB turned to an oldies format in 1985. By the end of the decade, KBEQ was Kansas City's only Top-40 outlet. WHB-AM is a commercial sports radio station in Kansas City, Missouri, broadcasting on 810 AM.

However, country music's popularity increased in Kansas City and throughout the nation. In February 1993, KBEQ made the surprise decision to adopt a country format, leaving the area without a bona fide Top-40 station and entering a crowded country market. Today that market is still crowded, as KBEQ competes against fellow CBS Radio station KFKF, Entercom's WDAF-FM, and country outlets just outside the immediate metropolitan. KBEQ, however, surprised many in October 2005 when KBEQ beat WDAF and perennial ratings winner KPRS to claim the top spot in Arbitron ratings. CBS Radio Inc. ...
