WDJQ (92.5 FM, "Q92") is a radio station in Alliance, Ohio, operating with a Top 40 (CHR) format. It serves the Canton, Ohio radio market. WDJQ is owned by the family company of Don Peterson, the former publisher of the Alliance Review newspaper, and is co-owned with AM station WDPN.The station originally signed on as WFAH-FM in 1947. One of the oldest established FM stations in the entire region, it served as the FM complement to WFAH-AM, now known as WDPN. Both stations were founded by Arthur Hoiles, with the callsign being a tribute to his father, Frank Austin Hoiles (FAH). WFAH-FM switched to a Top 40 (CHR) format as WDJQ on January 1, 1980; the calls selected because the names of the station owners began with the letters D and J (Don and Josephine (Hoiles) Peterson) as did their children (Don Jr. and Jill). The "Q" rhymed with the dial position 92, hence the "Q92" moniker.In the late 80's, the station was involved in a ratings controversy where Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania based WLTJ sued Arbitron claiming that listeners to 92.5 were credited to WDJQ incorrectly due to overlap in the markets as defined by Arbitron.WDJQ became WZKL on March 13, 1992. Under the WZKL call letters, the station played oldies as "Kool 92" and later "Oldies 92.5", then a hot adult contemporary format as "Z-92.5 - Today's Music For All People" in January 2000. It once again became Top 40 (CHR) as "Q92" in September 2002, although there was no "Q" in the station's call letters. Previous attempts to reclaim the WDJQ call letters were unsuccessful, but on February 29, 2008, it was announced that the radio station had successfully obtained the WDJQ call sign, which took effect March 7, 2008.AirstaffThe DeLuca Show, weekdays from 5:30-10:00am.
