WQBU is a 2kw rimshot into New York broadcasting from near the Queens/Nassau County line and putting most of its coverage over those counties and The Bronx. The station also has two boosters to improve its coverage over portions of Brooklyn and Manhattan. The previous Regional Mexican format will remain as a webcaster at LaQueBuenaNY.com.
