Station History

Before 90.5fm signed on, it was a carrier current station (WOWI). 90.5fm signed on September 6, 1977. When WPUM signed on, it had 10 watts. WPUM applied to move to 88.5fm, running 1000 watts at 118 feet. The FCC denied that application in late March 2000. In September 2003, the format changed from Religious/Variety to Modern Rock. In November 2008, WPUM moved down the dial from 90.5fm to 93.3fm and increased power to 90 watts. WPUM's music format ranges from 1950s to current music.
