WCTQ (92.1 FM) is a radio station broadcasting with a country music format. Licensed to Venice, Florida, United States, the station serves the Sarasota area. It is currently owned by iHeartMedia.

Before the 2011 holiday season, the then-WLTQ-FM played music with a hot AC format. On October 31, 2011, WLTQ-FM began playing Christmas music, branded as "Santa 92.1". Then, on December 26 at Midnight, the station changed to an adult contemporary format as "92.1 The Coast".[1]

On February 24, 2016, WLTQ-FM changed its format to a simulcast of country-formatted WCTQ 106.5 FM in preparation for a new Spanish hits format on 106.5.[2]

On February 29, 2016, WLTQ-FM changed callsigns to WCTQ, returning the country format and callsign to 92.1 after 17 years.
