WQSO (96.7 FM) is a radio station broadcasting a News Talk format. Licensed to Rochester, New Hampshire, USA, the station serves the Rochester-Portsmouth area. The station is currently owned by Clear Channel Communications.[1]


The station signed on in 1979 as WWNH. Then in 1983 the calls were changed to WXKZ and to WCYT in 1986 and within a year to WKOS by 1987.

The station went on the air as WKOS-FM on 1987-12-18. On 1990-12-17, the station changed its call sign to WWEM, on 1995-04-03 to WSRI and on 1997-09-29 to the current WQSO.[2]

On April 1, 2009 Clear Channel flipped WQSO from Oldies to News/Talk while keeping the “Wave” moniker. Most programs heard on WQSO were previously heard on WGIP (a simulcast of WGIR in Manchester) before it was spun off by Clear Channel and became WXEX.
