WQFM and WQFN are a radio station in Nanticoke, Pennsylvania and Forest City, Pennsylvania, both serving the greater Wilkes-Barre-Scranton area. One broadcasts at 92.1 FM, and the other at 100.1 FM. It is owned by Times-Shamrock Communications.

In addition, it is the flagship station of the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins. Tom Grace was the play-by-play announcer for the "baby Pens" for the majority of the franchise's existence prior to the 2007-2008 season, when former local TV weatherman Scott Stuccio replaced him. The 2007-2008 season also marked the first time that the Q split its music feed from the hockey game, giving listeners who wanted to continue to listen to music during games the option of doing so on 100.1 (WQFN).

WQFM was formerly an oldies station, known as "Oldies 92 and 100", then switched to Hot AC. On June 30, 2008, the station dropped the Hot AC format and began playing music exclusively from The Beatles. On July 3, 2008, the station switched back to an oldies format, branded as "Cool 92.1 and 100.1".
