WQML (101.5 FM) is a radio station broadcasting a Contemporary Christian format. it is branded as Pura Palabra Radio. Licensed to Ceiba, Puerto Rico, the station serves the eastern Puerto Rico area. The station is currently owned by Pura Palabra Media Group through its licensee, Caguas Educational TV.[1]

On November 9, 2017, Pura Palabra Media Group (Otoniel Font, president) files to swap WQML/98.7 in Culebra and a $1.2 million cash payment to New Life Broadcasting (Juan Carlos Matos Barreto, president) in exchange for the then-WNVE. Once the swap closes, the station will switch to Pura Palabra Radio and the call letters will changed to WQML. According to the terms of the contract, New Life will allow Pura Palabra Media to program the HD3 channel of WNVM as part of the deal in order to feed its San Juan-licensed translator W268BK at 101.5 FM which carries its Pura Palabra Radio programming. The sale was completed on May 22, 2018.[2]

The station changed its call sign to WQML on March 30, 2018.
