WQXR-FM is the outgrowth of a "high-fidelity" AM station, also called WQXR (now WQEW), which was founded in 1936 by John V. Hogan and Elliott Sanger.
WQXR was the first AM station in New York to experiment with broadcasting in stereo, beginning in 1952.
After briefly putting the stations up for sale in 1971, the Times was able to get a waiver of this rule and the stations continued to simulcast until 1992, when the AM broke away to become WQEW.

 Chamber Music Blues -- Page 1 -- TIME
Behind each increase is the desire of WQXR's founder and president, smallish, paunchy, deep-voiced John Vincent Lawless Hogan, to broadcast good music with maximum accuracy.
Operating on the belief that there are enough intelligent people in New York City and environs to support a station that shuns soap opera, funnymen and corny commercials, WQXR has whooped up its earnings from $9,174 in 1936 (when the station graduated from experimental ranks) to $177,074 in 1940.
WQXR's success has been due not only to smart Technician Hogan, but to its equally smart general manager—Elliott Sanger.

WQXR began in 1929 as W2XR when John V.L. Hogan received an experimental license to send mechanically scanned images by radio on 2100KC.
Most radio receivers were not capable of reproducing the quality that WQXR transmitted, so in 1937, Hogan sent engineers Russell Valentine (photos show Valentine on this page) and Bob Cobaugh to visit businesses in the Long Island City area and charge $1.00 to adjust radio sets whose dials stopped short of 1550 KC.
