KMAQ is the area's only locally owned and operated radio station, with no out-of-market consultant or ownership, programmed to the needs of its community. It bears the distinction of being one of a handful of radio stations across the country today with a live, local, real-time on-air staff. 95.1 Fm is branded as Maquoketa's Home to Today's Best Mix. Then when christmas music is on it is Maquoketa's Christmas Station![citation needed]

StaffEdit

KMAQ has the distinction of having an all-female sales force, with the exception of its sales manager Leighton Hepker, who did serve as station manager.[citation needed]
