Entercom has announced the launch of “Channel Q,” formerly known as “Out Now,” on KQPS/Palm Springs, CA. The station, formerly AC KEZN (Sunny 103.1) also has new call letters. “Channel Q,” Entercom’s LGBTQ+ Talk Radio Network, provides the latest in LGBTQ+ news and information, pop culture and new music.
“We are thrilled to add Palm Springs and the entire Coachella Valley to the ‘Channel Q’ network,” said Jeff Federman, SVP/Market Manager, Entercom-Los Angeles. “This time last year the station was merely an idea.

We’re passionate about giving a voice to the LGBTQ+ community and its allies and are particularly proud to showcase diversity on ‘Channel Q.'”
