Before NMU’s student radio was WUPX, as it is now, it was WBKX. The station began in 1971 and broadcasted from Lee Hall. Since the 1990s, when the name changed, the station has moved to the University Center on campus. The programming is handled by students with supervision from a station manager and faculty/staff advisers.
Here’s a look at what the student radio was playing in 1972.
WUPX recently became digital and moved its transmitter to another location to allow for a wider reach. Now, students commuting from as far as Munising can hear the radio station on their way to campus.
