WQNA was a non-commercial student/community volunteer-run station featuring an eclectic mix of music and programs. WQNA was operated by the Capital Area Career Center in Springfield, Illinois. CACC sold the station to Covenant Network Catholic Radio on November 19, 2019.
WQNA went silent that day. The Springfield Community Broadcasters are working hard to bring a replacement back to our city’s FM radio as soon as possible. We’re currently raising funds at support.wqnaradio.org
In the meantime, you can listen to us online!
