WQCS is listener supported public radio locally owned and operated right here on the Treasure Coast. Our mission is to provide public service programming that informs, educates and entertains the community.
For some, we are the only source of classical music. For some others, we are the only source of local, national and international news.
WQCS is also a member of the Florida Public Radio Emergency Network and is designated by the state as the Emergency Alert Radio Station for the area.
WQCS’s audiences and local communities know that we provide up-to-the minute public safety and weather information through Emergency Alert System, local Emergency Operations Centers and new Florida Public Radio Emergency Network. And they rely on us for unbiased news and engaging cultural programming anytime. In order to accomplish our mission of public service, we must make sure we are available to our audiences anytime, anywhere, and on their favorite mobile devices.
