WUFM (88.7 FM, "RadioU") is a non-commercial radio station licensed to Columbus, Ohio. The station retransmits its signal to several FM stations and FM translators nationwide including KRQZ, a full-service FM station licensed to Lompoc, California, WPRJ, a full-service FM station licensed to Coleman, Michigan, and KQXI, a full-service FM station licensed to Granite Falls, Washington in 2015.
RadioU primarily plays alternative and heavier style of Christian rock music across several genres, with the most played genres including pop-rock, hard rock, punk, and hip-hop, as well as electronic/dance, and hardcore/metal music. The station is accessible worldwide through their website
radiou.com and can be seen through their music TV stream, RadioU TV. At this present time the christian rock genre hasn't been classified as a radio format officially in radio broadcasting history, there a very small and select few christian rock radio stations across the whole United States outside of Columbus and other station affiliate areas around Ohio, RadioU is one example of how christian rock can reach a similar fan base much like the secularized active rock and alternative rock programmed radio scene.
RadioU TV, formerly known as TVU, is a commercial-free, Christian rock television network which broadcasts through the Internet. It was formerly available on satellite and IPTV provider Sky Angel, and on the now-defunct Kids & Teens TV channel.
RadioU TV airs different shows, aside from its normal programming:
RadioU TV is available for free in a 720p high-definition television format on the station's website. Standard-definition streams are also available in 360p and 480p. The online stream was originally limited to low-definition 240p in the ASX format, requiring a program such as Microsoft Silverlight, VLC media player or Windows Media Player.
In the past, RadioU TV (as TVU) was available as a standard-definition television channel on Sky Angel IPTV from 2007 to 2014, and on satellite from 2001 to 2008. TVU was also simulcast from 1 AM to 5 PM ET on the Kids & Teens TV (KTV) satellite station, which was available on Dish Network until January 31, 2019.
RadioU is owned and operated by Spirit Communications, Inc., a non-profit organization funded completely by listener donations. RadioU does not have commercial sponsors and is kept running only by listener donations received during its twice-yearly on-air fundraisers and through local special events such as the RadioU Annual 5K.
