WJPZ-FM is a student run college radio station at Syracuse University in New York. It broadcasts at 89.1 FM at an effective radiated power of 1000 watts and can be heard throughout Syracuse, the rest of Onondaga County, and beyond to the north and east. WJPZ primarily programs a Contemporary Hit Radio, Top 40 radio format. A notable amount of airtime during the academic year is devoted to sports talk and live play-by-play coverage of select local sporting events. Although operated by students, it is an independent organization which is incorporated and licensed by the FCC as WJPZ Radio, Inc and leases studio and transmitter facilities on Syracuse University property.[citation needed]. Z89 broadcasts 14 hours of sports talk radio and provides game broadcasts for Central New York high school football, Syracuse Orange women's basketball, and Syracuse women's lacrosse.

The station originally was authorized to broadcast at 100 watts of effective radiated power in 1985; as of June 29, 2017, the station started broadcasting at 1,000 watts with approval from the Federal Communications Commission.
