Love From Listeners

At WTQT Power 106.1 FM, we find it good to acknowledge what our listeners have to say about the job we’re doing!

I listen to WTQT every day while driving around. I’m a traveling salesman so I’m in the car a lot. Nothing keeps you going like some good ole gospel tracks. Praise God for this station.

Bernard Payne

I listen to this station on my drive home every day. It’s a mix of Gospel and contemporary Christian songs and I love it.

Melvin Tate

WTQT gives me life every morning and on my drive home every day! I would be lost and spiritually drained without it!
