News With David Bacon

Weekday mornings at 6:45, 7:30, 8:30 and 9:30 David Bacon delivers a complete look at local, state & national news.

Q Country 96.1 is the only station on the FM dial to deliver a complete look at what's happening in the Big Country and Beyond.


Hey Big Country! I'm JR, I host the afternoon show here on Q Country! I'm excited to be a part of the Abilene community! I've been in radio way too long, and in Texas not long enough! I've worked in San Angelo, College Station and Lubbock. I've been in the Texas Country scene since about 2008, and I love going out to see live shows!

Pratt on Texas

Pratt on Texas has been heard in Abilene since 2006. He has been heard on KORQ since 2020. His show airs daily from 5-6pm.

The show is hosted by Robert Pratt and focuses on news from around the state that you don’t find on most radio and television stations. Pratt’s knowledge of politics gives him a unique ability to uncover and explain to his audience what’s happening in our Federal, State and Local government, and laws that affect our daily lives.

A native-Texan, Robert Pratt is a former chairman of the Lubbock County Republican Party having administered two Primary Elections. He served as a board member and regional director for the Texas GOP county chairmen’s association (TRCCA) and was instrumental in passing election law reforms in the 2005 legislative session. He served for almost a decade as the party’s finance chairman and as long as president of the county Young Republicans club, with the club being named as the outstanding club in Texas under his leadership.

Reared on a cotton farm east of Floydada, Pratt’s career began at the age of 15 when he began selling business computer systems. He moved to Lubbock at 16, becoming a partner in a computer business which he built into the region’s leading business computer maintenance provider. Pratt served as an officer and president of the Data Processing Management Association (now AITP) in Lubbock for several years in the late 1980’s and early 1990’s. He has 15 years’ experience in marketing, sales management, and executive management in the technology services industry.

Pratt has hundreds of hours of experience in unscripted and scripted live television and radio. He was the 1998 Pee Bee Award winner for his on-air work for Public Broadcasting on the South Plains and was an on-air fundraiser for Lubbock’s PBS affiliate for 20 years.
He and his wife Isabel are members of the Missouri Synod Lutheran Church and are supportive of the Anglican Church in North America (ACNA) and its reforms.


I’m just a guy who likes to have fun and enjoy life. One thing you and I have in common is we have both burned our mouths on a hot pocket… Let’s build our relationship off of that and go from there! Do you like pigs' feet? No? Me neither. What about swimming? That’s cool! I’m a miniature golf champ. Do you like putting? Awesome! I feel like this is going so well. My favorite color is red, favorite TV show is Saved By The Bell, favorite movie is Top Gun (just call me Maverick). I could go on and on… So just tune in nights from 7pm-11pm and follow me on social media to find out more!
