KKHQ-FM (92.3 FM, "Q92.3") is a radio station serving Waterloo, Cedar Falls, and the surrounding area known as the Cedar Valley with a Top 40 (CHR) format. This station broadcasts on FM frequency 92.3 MHz and is under ownership of Cumulus Media. Aaron Santini has been the station's program director since its inception in 2003.


Before the 92.3 frequency was acquired by Cumulus Media from Connoisseur Media in 2000, the station was country music-formatted KOEL-FM "92.3 The Hog." This format flip also happened to other stations Cumulus acquired from Connoisseur, like KBEA (Muscatine-Quad Cities, IA), which had been a leading country station as well as KBOB "BOB Country." The country format and KOEL-FM call sign still live on in Waterloo/Cedar Falls on 98.5 MHz, branded as "K98.5".

Before the flip to CHR, the only other stations in the Waterloo/Cedar Falls Area that carried the format were distant and somewhat weak signals. You either had to chose from KZIA Z102.9 from Cedar Rapids, or KWAY-FM "Y99.3" from Waverly. Although Waverly is considered part of the Waterloo/Cedar Falls DMA, KWAY's signal was not the strongest. At only 4,600 watts, it is considered just another small-town radio station. And while KZIA used a full 100,000 watts, the tower was at least 40-50 miles away, which made it hard to receive over the closer stations.
