[ [http://www.legacy.com/sj%2Dr/Obituaries.asp?Page=Lifestory&PersonId=98106749 Obituary] ] WQLZ is owned by
Mid-West Family Broadcastingin Spaulding, Illinois.
The station is built to appeal to the
Springfield, Illinoismarket. Its estimated radiated power is 11.5 kW.
WQLZ went on the air in
1967as 3,000-watt WTIM-FM, playing beautiful musicand featuring local high school sports events as an extension of WTIM-AM 1410 (now WIHM) which was a daytimer. From 1975to 1984, the station was WEEE (known as "Triple E" and later "W-3-E") with a variety of contemporary music formats, starting as adult contemporarythen changing to "Rock 'n' Gold" (an AC/ oldieshybrid) and then to album oriented rock. As an AOR station, the station first began to attract an audience in the Springfield market and was drawing much of its advertising revenue from there.
WEEE was sold in 1984 and the new owners changed the format to
country musicas WTJY. The station was sold again two years later and the format became satellite-fed AC. Ownership of WTIM and WTJY was separated in 1992, with WTJY going to Mid-West Family Broadcast Group to become part of the company's Springfield station cluster as WQLZ. The station also was granted a power increase to 11,500 watts and a tower relocation into Sangamon County to get city-grade coverage of Springfield without relinquishing city-grade coverage of Taylorville. Meanwhile, WTIM-AM later gained a new FM sister to serve Taylorville in 94.3 WMKR, and moved to its current frequency of 97.3 in the late 1990s while a Catholic religious broadcaster took over the AM 1410 signal.
WQLZ was also, in the 1980s, the former call sign of the station now known as
WGFMin Cheboygan, Michigan.
