NEPA Radio: WQFM Rebrands As Q92.1 FM

Scranton/Wilkes-Barre radio station Alt 92.1 turned off the Christmas music and turned on the ’90s.

On Nov. 4, NEPA Scene broke the news that WFUZ Alt 92.1 made the sudden switch from alternative rock to 24/7 holiday music, indicating that a format switch was imminent. A new website and social media pages revealed this morning that the station is now rebranded as WQFM Q92.1, playing “the ’90s and now.” Programming will include “90’s at 9,” an hour of hits from the 1990s every day at 9 a.m. and 9 p.m., and Alt 92.1 personality Tom “Ferg” Ferguson is staying on as the program director.

92.1 FM has gone through many format changes over the years, from oldies to sports to rock station Fuzz 92.1 in 2012, which rebranded as Alt 92.1 in early 2017.

Q92.1 is owned by Times-Shamrock Communications, which also owns local radio stations WEZX Rock 107 and WEJL ESPN 630 as well as several newspapers including the Scranton Times-Tribune and Wilkes-Barre Citizens’ Voice.
