WKQZ (aka The Rock Station, Z93) is an active rock radio station at 93.3 on the FM dial serving east-central Michigan, owned by Citadel Broadcasting. The station is licensed to Midland, Michigan, although its studios are in Saginaw. Z93 plays modern rock tracks, but also frequents in classic rock.

During the weekday morning hours from 5-10 AM (and a re-run program on Saturdays), "Joe and the Poorboy," a comedic program, airs with select music played during the runtime.

Z93 also airs Detroit Lions football in the fall.

What is now Z93 was originally WRCI "Easy 93-5", an adult contemporary music station at 93.5 FM in Midland. WRCI was locally programmed at first, but in 1982 affiliated with the "Star Station" adult contemporary format delivered via satellite by Satellite Music Network. The station changed its calls to WKQZ and adopted its current rock format in 1986, and the station soon afterward shifted from 93.5 to 93.3, enabling a boost in power from 3,000 to 39,000 watts.

The WKQZ signal covers a large amount of territory in east-central Michigan, from Mio southward to Flint and from west of Mount Pleasant eastward into the Thumb.

The station also has many remote broadcastings from different areas, frequenting the counties of Midland, Bay City and Saginaw.
