WUPX is the student radio station on the campus of Northern Michigan University which broadcasts at 91.5 MHz FM in Marquette, Michigan. WUPX is operated by the student organization Radio X. Radio X also hosts a number of concerts, events, and benefits. The station is on the air twelve months out of the year, and operates twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week throughout the school term. The station is licensed to the NMU Board of Trustees, financed by the student activity fee, and operates separately from the University's other media outlet, WNMU-FM, and WNMU (TV). WUPX broadcasts from the Don H. Bottum University Center on the campus of Northern Michigan University. Beginning in 1970 as WBKX, Radio X was initially broadcasting on the AM dial from the Lee Hall Gallery. In the 1980s, Radio X switched to a cable-only format (see carrier current).
