WSUE is a radio station in Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan, broadcasting at 101.3 FM. The station broadcasts an album-oriented rock (AOR) format with the brand name Rock 101. Prior to adopting the rock format, WSUE had country and adult-contemporary music formats. WSUE is owned and operated by Sovereign Communications, who acquired the station along with AM sister station WSOO in 2003. With the end of WIHC's run as a classic rock station in 2010, WSUE is currently the only rock radio station directly serving Michigan's Eastern Upper Peninsula or Ontario's Algoma District.

WSUE is easily heard in both the Eastern Upper Peninsula and in the Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario market, due to its proximity to Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan. As a result, WSUE covers and advertises bands, concerts, and events in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario frequently. The station can be heard throughout much of the Central Algoma region of Ontario, and can be heard into the Lower Peninsula of Michigan as far south as Cheboygan, Michigan and surrounding areas.

WSUE is the current radio home for regular season & playoff games of the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds of the Ontario Hockey League, who are based across the border in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario. Nationally-syndicated programming on WSUE includes rock radio programs like Eddie Trunk Rocks, Flashback, and In the Studio with Redbeard. Locally produced programming includes Scott & Brian in the Morning on weekday mornings, and The Hair Scare with Scott Cook on Saturday nights.

Current on-air talent includes program hosts Scott Cook & Brian Davie, DJs John DeLise, Allison "Alli J" Miller, Nikki "At Night" Peterson, and Mark SanAngelo, and weatherman Karl Bohnak. Current Sault Ste. Marie City Commissioner Ray Bauer is among WSUE's former DJs, while Sovereign Communications vice president Tom Ewing was the station's long time news anchor.
