WIUP-FM is a 1600-watt, noncommercial, student-operated radio station owned by IUP. Students from a variety of majors volunteer as news announcers, sports play-by-play announcers, promotions
and production staff, and on-air program hosts. On-air hosting opportunities include several different music shows supported by an extensive music library of rock, urban, jazz, and classical. With the supervision of a faculty advisor from the Department of Communications Media, the station is managed
by student volunteers who supervise and train other students. While the station is student-run, the faculty advisor works with the student management and staff on programming and personnel decisions.
The station is a recognized campus activity, and more than 100 students from numerous majors are currently involved.
“Through hands-on management and budget experience at
WIUP-FM, the Communications Media Department provided real-world experience
that I continue to use today. I found that my early career was
significantly better off due to what I was able to take away from the
department and the services and support they provided.”
