About WQUE

WQUE-FM, aka, Q93, is a top-rated Mainstream Urban outlet in New Orleans, Louisiana. The station, which is owned by Clear Channel Communications, operates at 93.3 MHz with an ERP of 100 kW. Its current slogan is '#1 For Hip-Hop & R&B.' Its transmitter is located in New Orleans. As of July 2008, the station now competes with Cumulus Media's KKND 'Power 102.9' for ratings. WQUE was originally WDSU-FM, the FM sister of WDSU-TV until 1971, when it was sold to new owners who turned it into a Beautiful music outlet. By the late 1970s, it switched to Top 40 and adopted the 'Q93' handle, which they continue with today after they evolved to its current format in 1987. Q93 is one of the most popular station among African-American youth in the New Orleans area.
