KUPS is a non-commercial, educational radio station licensed to the Board of Trustees of the University of Puget Sound and operated by the Associated Students. KUPS is 100% student-run and broadcasts 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, serving the greater Tacoma area with programming in a variety of genres.
The station has been nationally recognized by The Princeton Review, Collegiate Broadcasters, and the College Music Journal as being one of the most popular college radio stations and having some of the most excellent student DJs.
Students of all experience levels can try-out for a DJ position. Students select their shows based on the genres that they are interested in but collaborate with one another through music preview gatherings. Additionally, there is always a bin of free CDs outside the KUPS door in Wheelock Student Center, a way for KUPS to share the love of music with all students.
