WUCX-FM, 90.1 FM in Bay City, Michigan, is a public radio station licensed to Central Michigan University and operated jointly with Delta College. It airs programming (both local and syndicated) separate from WCMU-FM between 5 a.m. and 3 p.m. on weekdays, from 6 a.m. until 6 p.m. on Saturdays, and from 6 a.m. until 12 p.m on Sundays. The station simulcasts WCMU for the remainder of the time. WUCX, which went on the air in September 1989, identified as "Q90.1" (with the "Q" standing for "Quality", after its television counterpart, WDCQ) until 2020 during non-simulcast day parts. Programming offers a mixture of news and talk (including programming from National Public Radio, American Public Media, Public Radio Exchange, and BBC World Service), as well as several types of music. WUCX-FM is the only station in the Saginaw, Midland, and Bay City metropolitan area that broadcasts in the HD Radio format.

The transmitter for WUCX is located on Dutcher Road near Van Buren Road in the northwest corner of Tuscola County, and broadcasts on a tower shared with commercial station WHNN.
