About Us/Who We Are/Our Purpose

WTZQ – the Q stands for Q-munity!

Hyper-Local:  Henderson County and Western North Carolina is like no other place in America, so its radio shouldn’t sound like every other place in America.  When you listen to WTZQ, you’re hearing what this unique community sounds like.

Serve your community and your community will serve you.  WTZQ’s music is a unique mix of adult standards and classics, nostalgia and oldies along with more current “ear friendly” music that you can still sing-a-long to.  In other words… we still play the good stuff.  

The music is important, but it’s community service that sets us apart.  WTZQ partners with dozens of area non-profits annually to highlight the work they do and help them with fundraising and volunteer efforts.

  • Local Focus a bi-weekly morning program that gives air time specifically to area non-profits
  • Tails In Town —  annual day long fund raising event for area animal shelters
  • United Way Moment – weekly program that highlights our local United Way and it’s programs and funded partners
  • Lightning NewsWeekly partnership and 30 minute show getting behind the headlines of hyper local paper the Hendersonville Lightning.
  • Local Artist Showcase — weekly music show spotlighting music that is written, recorded and performed locally.
  • Gardening in the Mountainsweekly 30 minute program with local NC Cooperative Extension Agent Steve Pettis
  • Pet Patroldaily airings of reported lost and found pets in the area
  • WTZQ partners as media sponsors for dozens of non-profit fundraisers and programs annually

WTZQ is all over town!  You’ll find WTZQ broadcasting live from annual events like the NC Apple Festival, Garden Jubilee, Tails In Town and Memorial Day and Veterans Day services.
