WWSP (89.9 FM) is a student-operated radio station broadcasting from Stevens Point, Wisconsin. The station is owned by the Board of Regents of the University of Wisconsin System. Broadcasting an alternative format, it features locally sourced programming augmented by AP Radio.[1][2]

Each April the station hosts a trivia contest run by local radio personality Jim "Oz" Oliva and John Eckendorf. It serves as a fundraiser for the station and the college. Billing itself as "The World's Largest Trivia Contest," the contest regularly draws 12,000 players with participants both local and from throughout the United States and other countries.[3] Distant teams and displaced members of local teams can also participate remotely through the WWSP webcast.
