Description: KCCQ is a commercial radio station located in Ames, Iowa, broadcasting to the Des Moines, Iowa area on 105.1 FM. KCCQ airs an Alternative rock music format branded as "New Rock 105.1". KCCQ is owned by Clear Channel Communications and licensed to Citicaster Licenses LP.Prior to the switch to Alternative rock, the station was known as "Hot 105 KCCQ" with a contemporary hit radio format. Ames Broadcasting Company owned KCCQ-FM along with KASI-AM in ames, and KIKD-FM in Lake City, IA until 1999 when KASI & KCCQ it was sold to Jacor, which, at the time recently merged with Clear Channel Communications. For many years in the 1990s, KCCQ was the only contemporary hit radio station broadcasting in central Iowa, including the Des Moines metro area. The signal in Des Moines itself was relatively weak prior to 1998 when the station moved frequencies to 105.1 from 107.1 and the wattage was strengthened. Much of the time the station occupied 107.1, listeners in Des Moines and other parts of the southern fringe of KCCQ's coverage area could often hear interference from KJJC of Osceola, Iowa, which was broadcasting at 106.9 with higher wattage than KCCQ. Previous to 1998, the station only targeted the Ames, Iowa area and was known as "Hot 107 KCCQ" and before that "107 KCCQ Ames' Hot FM".On August 23, 2010 KCCQ rebranded as "New Rock 105.1"
