KATQ (1070 AM) is a radio station licensed to serve Plentywood, Montana. The station is owned by Radio International KATQ Broadcast Association, with a country music format.[2] Studios at 112 Third Avenue East.

The 5000 watt AM daytimer signed-on September 14, 1979 with call letters of KATQ honoring the Plentywood Wildcats, mascot of the local high school. A subsequent owner briefly changed the call letters in the 1980s, but they were returned to KATQ by the Federal Communications Commission on August 1, 1987.[1]
