WFUM, also known as Michigan Television, is a PBS affiliate owned and operated by the University of Michigan, whose studios are based at the U of M's Flint Campus.
WFUM's transmitter is located on Kipp Road in Atlas Township, Michigan just south of the town of Goodrich in the southeast corner of Genesee County.

Michigan Radio - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (2035 words)
The original WFUM operated at 107.1 MHz during the 1950s and was also a simulcast of WUOM.
WFUM-FM was shut down after WUOM increased its power to 115,000 watts, giving it adequate coverage of Flint and meaning that WFUM, which operated with only 400 watts of power, was no longer necessary.
The station uses the "-FM" extension because the WFUM callsign is also assigned to the University of Michigan's television station in Flint, WFUM-TV.
