MTVu College Radio Woodie Award
In the Fall of 2009, KUPS won the 2009 MTVu College Radio Woodie Award for the Best College Radio Station in the country which was totally awesome! Matthew Pinfield and other MTVu representatives surprised KUPS with a personal visit on November 12, 2009 to congratulate them, interview them, and present them with the award. Many members of the KUPS Core Staff flew to New York City for the MTVu Woodie Awards to attend this honor in person. Go KUPS!!!

“Jeopardy!” Game Show
In November 11, 2010, KUPS was featured as a clue on the popular TV game show “Jeopardy”! The clue said “Catch some Logger Rhythms on KUPS, from the university named for this Washington body of water”. Best of all, the contestant got it right, Good Job!

We have also won the UPS Campus Radio Station of the Year Award off and on for the past 12 or so years. This is also a great honor and while smaller in scope than the previous awards, is quite an achievement!
