WPTS Radio, a student-run radio station at the University of Pittsburgh, is hosting a signature programming event of specialty content beginning Friday, Feb. 7.

The Totally '20s Winter Marathon is from noon Friday, Feb. 7 to noon Saturday, Feb. 8. For 24 hours, Pitt students will be on the air broadcasting live music, sports competitions, game shows and more. Tune in on 92.1 FM or iheartradio or wptsradio.org

“This year, we are especially excited to continue the marathon tradition because of an award we won called the Spirit of College Radio Award for an event we did in October,” said station manager Jonah Pfeifer.

WPTS was one of six recipients of the 2020 Spirit of College Radio award. More than 500 stations in 33 countries participated in World College Radio Day on Oct. 4, 2019. WPTS held a 921-minute mini-marathon with news and sports programming, trivia and quiz shows. The College Radio Foundation recognized their efforts as the embodiment of the passion and mission of college radio.
