WMQT is a Hot AC radio station in Marquette, Michigan owned by Taconite Broadcasting.

The station went on the air in 1971 on 107.1; the original format until the early 1980s was beautiful music. Later on, the frequency was changed to 107.5 and then 107.7 FM. WMQT has shifted between Hot AC and CHR over the years. The station has used the on-air identifier "Q107" for years (in the 1980s, it was popularly known as "Stereo Rock Q107") and primarily competes with CHR WGLQ (97.1), CHR WUPZ (94.9), hot AC WKQS-FM 101.9 and rock WUPK (94.1) in the central Upper Peninsula market.

Casey Ford is WMQT's news director, Paul B Walker is the station's program director, and Jill Trudeau is the station's morning personality. WMQT's studios were located in Marquette and broadcasts with an Effective Radiated Power of 100,000 watts. The station can be heard 80-100 miles away in places such as Iron River, Houghton, and Seney, and occasionally across Lake Michigan into the northern Lower Peninsula.
