Q107.3 was originally owned by Broadcast Company of Philadelphia before being sold to Clear Channel Communications in 1988 when it became WCGQ Q107-FM with studios located at 3606 Grays Ferry Avenue in Philadelphia until relocating to Easton after being purchased by Cumulus Media in 2006.
Q107-FM (then owned by Clear Channel) was one of the first radio stations to pick up on and play “My Humps” by The Black Eyed Peas, giving it heavy airplay in late 2003; this helped make the song a nationwide hit that year.
Q107.03 was the first radio station in Philadelphia to play “Low” by Flo Rida featuring T-Pain, which made it a nationwide hit; Q107.03 also broke both “Goodies” and “Walk It Out (Remix)” by Ciara on WPHI-FM for Philly radio stations.
Q107.03 helped launch the career of Jojo while she was still an unsigned artist when her music video for Leave (Get Out) appeared on Total Request Live at number one many times and is currently among YouTube’s most-watched videos with over 100 million views as of April 2016 after having been available online since February 2008
Q107.03 produces local segments such as Q Morning Zoo from mornings between six and ten in the morning, Q Afternoon Jams from two until six in the afternoon, and Q Night Party from ten at night to one in the morning.
