- The station
started off as WACQ, the FM companion to AM 1130 in town. The format
was rather rare: small town top 40 with an emphasis on local
Tallassee and Reeltown school sports. The moniker was Power 99.
Later switched to automated top 40 before settling on oldies, still
with the "Power 99" name.
- In 1999, this
station began simulcasting WTGZ-FM in Tuskegee. For a month the
calls were changed to WQNR. The simulcast met with such sucess that
it it went on for most of the year, although the calls returned to
WACQ. During this period, WTGZ never identified the 99.9 frequency.
- The station was
back to WQNR and classic rock (with Auburn sports) as of early
October 1999. June 2000 saw the format tweaked a little
towards adult alternative.
- The format was
tweaked again early in April 2008, moving to a classic hits-type
format as "99-9 Kate" (later just "Kate FM").
