History of WRMQ 

WRMQ debuted Monday, December 7, 1992 as Orlando's first Spanish all-music station. The 1140 AM frequency was vacated in October when WONQ-AM moved to 1030 on  the dial. WRMQ was originally licensed as a "daytime only" station to protect the nighttime signal of "clear channel" station WRVA in Richmond, Virginia. However, WRMQ now broadcasts at night with an FCC approved power of 8 watts.

From Leo Vargas
In 2022, WONQ ("Viva FM") has moved its main frequency from 1030 AM back to the original WRMQ 1140 AM frequency (where the station first originated in 1985). It will continue broadcasting on the 99.5 FM translator, but now also broadcasts on WURB-HD2 103.7 FM in the Osceola County area & 103.5 FM in the Seminole County area (replacing Urbana FM, which is now entirely online).  WONQ 1030 AM, flipped back to the previous "La Grande" format, playing Spanish-language oldies & rock/ballad hits (the format it had prior to switching to the salsa format in 2018).
