replacedby =Que Pasa Radio is a network of 4 radio stations in North Carolina broadcasting music and news in Spanish.
Prior to purchase by Que Pasa Media, WREV station broadcast a
Country Musicformat and aired several community-oriented talk shows.
WNOS was a
country musicstation in the 1970s, later changing its letters to WOKX. WOKX switched to Christianmusic, and the X in the station's logo looked like a leaning cross. In September 2003, WOKX switched to sports talk, becoming an ESPN affiliate, later changing to its current call letters. [Eric Swensen, "Triad Gets All-Sports Radio", "Greensboro News & Record", September 29, 2003.] Early in 2006, WYSR switched to its current format.
AM 1000 signed on in 1969 as country station WKBQ. In 1987, the station became classic country WHEV under the ownership of Henry E. Veil. WHEV went dark in the early 1990s. Veil gave the license to Carolina Christian Communications, which signed WHEV back on the air in 1994 as WRTG with a simulcast of their contemporary Christian station WRTP, 1530 AM (now WLLQ). A third AM signal, WGSB, 1060 AM in Mebane, joined the simulcast in 1995. In October of 2004, WRTG, along with WRTP-AM and WGSB were purchased by Estuardo Valdemar Rodriguez and Leonor Rodriguez, owners of WLLN in Lillington, for $1.1 million. On February 3rd, 2005, WRTP and its sister AM stations ceased broadcasting the "His Radio WRTP" Christian format ("His Radio WRTP", now owned by Radio Training Network, airs on
WRTP-FM88.5 in Roanoke Rapidsalong with several FM translators across the Triangle and Eastern North Carolina). After a day off-air, the three stations resumed broadcasting a Spanish-language format on February 4th, 2005. Que Pasa Radio airs on WLLQ, WRTG, WGSB.
