About KBEA

KBEA (99.7 FM, 'B100') is a radio station licensed to Muscatine, Iowa, whose format is Adult Top 40 (CHR). The station broadcasts at a power of 100 kW. KBEA is owned by Cumulus Media, with studios located in Davenport, Iowa (along with the co-located KQCS, WXLP, KBOB-FM and KJOC). The Muscatine allocation for 99.7 MHz dates to February 1949, when the station signed on as KWPC-FM, a sister station to KWPC (860 AM). The studios for both stations were located on the outskirts of Muscatine. Early in its history, KWPC-FM -;ike most FM stations of the 1950s and 1960s - played beautiful, easy listening music. In the late 1960s, the station's call letters changed to KFMH, but easy listening music continued on the frequency for several more years.
