Station History

107.5 signed on as WDWQ, the sister to AM WQIZ in St. George. The FM station was sold in 1977 to a Washington, DC group that moved the studios to North Charleston and flipped the station to Top 40 as "Q107" under the WKQB call-sign. The "Q107" moniker was briefly dropped in 1984 for "Power 107" but Q107 was reclaimed one year later. Q107 eventually became #1 in the ratings on several occasions in the later half in the 1980s under a Dance-leaning CHR format. North Charleston is a city located in South Carolina. ... Top 40 is a radio format based on frequent repetition of songs from a constantly-updated list of the forty best-selling singles. ...

Q107 gained fame in September, 1989 as it broadcasted continuously during Hurricane Hugo's landfall in the Charleston area. The broadcast ended when the eye wall of the storm made landfall and station personal was evacuated. The station returned to the air after the storm passed and broadcasted vital information to area residents for weeks afterwards. Lowest pressure 918 mbar (hPa; 27. ...

Unfortunately, Q107 entered the 1990s under serious hardship. The station shut down in early 1991 and simulcasted for a brief time with WSUY in order to stay on the air. WKQB was eventually sold in 1991 to a new owner, which took the station Country under the call-letters of WBUB as "Bubba 107.5" in the Spring of 1991. WALC-FM also known as 100. ...

in 1997, the station was sold to new ownership as the station dropped the "Bubba 107.5" handle for "Cat Country 107.5" under the WNKT call letters.
