WQUE-FM (93.3 FM, "Q93.3") is a Mainstream Urban radio outlet in New Orleans, Louisiana. The station, which is owned by iHeartMedia, Inc., operates at 93.3 MHz with an ERP of 100 kW. Its current slogan is "#1 For Hip-Hop And R&B!" Its transmitter is located in New Orleans' Algiers district, and its studios are located downtown. As of July 2008, the station now competes with Cumulus Media's KKND "Power 102.9" for ratings.

WQUE was originally WDSU-FM, the FM sister of WDSU-TV until 1971, when it was sold to new owners who turned it into a AC format. By the late 1970s, it switched to a Top 40/CHR format and adopted the "Q93" handle, which they continue with today after they evolved to its current format in 1992. Q93.3 is one of the most popular station among African-American youth in the New Orleans area. From 2006 to 2014, it was the home of the Steve Harvey Morning Show, which now airs on sister WYLD-FM (which formerly aired Tom Joyner now on KMEZ). In January 2014, it became the home of The Breakfast Club.
