In 1976, The Miami Herald stated that the station, which ran a news program presented by Emilio Milián, had the largest audience of any in the Miami metropolitan area.[1]

1140 AM is a United States and Mexican clear-channel frequency on which XEMR-AM in Apodaca, Nuevo León and WRVA in Richmond, Virginia are the Class A stations. WQBA must reduce power and use a highly directional array during nighttime hours in order to prevent interference to the skywave signals of the Class A stations.

On December 20, 2016, Univision announced that WQBA would be one of the charter affiliates of Univision Deportes Radio, their new Spanish-language sports network launched in April 2017.[2]
