|Revamped myqmix.com offers "Watch and Listen" feature, allows|
listeners to see the Q102 playlist in real time.
Q102 (WQXQ, 101.9 FM, Central City, Ky.) has unveiled a new website — myqmix.com — and updated iPhone app with some new features for listeners to check out, along with a new segment for the Q102 Breakfast Bunch morning program.
The station's redesigned website features "Watch and Listen," a new tool that allows listeners to watch the station's playlist in video form and in real time. In addition, there's a revised mobile version of the site, and it works better on both smartphones and tablets.
If you prefer an app instead of the site on your mobile device, the Q102 iPhone app has been updated as well, and I'm told it now mimics the station's current Android app. It is also optimized for the iPhone 5's screen size.
Listeners can also "Text-Quest," which, simply put, means that you can text in requests, relay information to the station and participate in contests.
Finally, every Tuesday morning, there's a new feature during the Q102 Breakfast Bunch that they're calling "Law Enforcement Tuesdays." You'll get to hear from local police agencies and what's going on with those who protect and serve. Participating officers include Corey King, Public Affairs Officer at the Kentucky State Police's Henderson post; Todd Ringle, Public Information Officer at the Indiana State Police post in Evansville; Michael Hathaway of the Owensboro Police Department; Daviess County (Ky.) Sheriff Keith Cain; and Vanderburgh County Sheriff Eric Williams.
The station has also been airing regular interviews with Kentucky Gov. Steve Beshear and Sen. Rand Paul; those will continue.
