Univision Radio launches “Mami 92.7” in NYC


UnivisionThe new WQBU FM, Mami 92.7 FM features the greatest tropical hits of all time, competing with SBS’s WSKQ-FM in that market. Mami 92.7 FM airs music by El Gran Combo, Juan Luis Guerra, Hector Lavoe, Wilfrido Vargas, Frank Reyes, Frankie Ruiz, Zacarias Ferreira, Johnny Ventura, and more.

This was the frequency of New Rock legend WLIR-FM Garden City/Hempstead.

Alipio “Coco” Cabrera and Federico Martinez, also known as “El Pachá,” who will deliver the best tropical music and high energy entertainment in New York radio. Coco and El Pacha will begin their daily shows on Monday, December 3.

“We are thrilled to offer Mami 92.7 FM’s high energy tropical hit music to the New York area radio listener,” said Felix Perez, vice president and general manager of Univision Radio New York.  “New York is a hub of Hispanic cultures and Univision Radio provides the most complete entertainment offering with WXNY 96.3 FM featuring Luis Jimenez, Radio WADO 1280 AM which is home to the New York Yankees and Brooklyn Nets and now Mami 92.7 FM featuring the greatest hits ever from salsa, merengue, bachata, and more.”

In addition to tuning into 92.7 FM, listeners can tune in online at Mami927.com as well as stream Mami via the Univision Radio mobile app. The Regional Mexican formatted station previously heard on this frequency, “La Que Buena” (The Good One), will now be available on the Univision Radio app, as well as LaQueBuenaNewYork.com



  1. Jus wanted to say, I LOVE this station. Its so refreshing to have a station where i can listen to great salsa. Every radio in my house, car and job are all tuned in.

  2. I am infuriated by this change because mexican regional music also needs a place in the latin radio stations in New York. There are already many options for the people that listen to tropical music.
