WMSS was founded in 1977 by Feaser Middle School teachers John Cooper and Jeff Johnston. In October 1978, WMSS 91.1FM went on the air as a 10 watt radio station in Middletown, PA.

The station has expanded over the years. Today, it's located at the Middletown Area Middle School and operates as a 5.5k watt radio station in Central PA. The station can also be heard on wmssfm.com and also on the Tune In app.

John Cooper served as General Manager until 1992.  Original student member John Wilsbach, now a local broadcaster, took over as GM in 1992 and continues to operate the station today.  Former student members Brian Keyser is now the Faculty Advisor, Tim Starliper is the chief Engineer, and Steve Leedy is the Sports Director.  The station also receives assistance from former longtime faculty advisor Maureen Denis.  Feaser teacher Mary Bigelow also served as assistant G.M. a few years in the middle 80's and assisted for several years.

The station is owned by the Middletown Area School District. Funding is provided by the school district, interested businesses, and organizations.

It operates as a non-commercial, non-profit broadcast station for the Middletown and surrounding community area. The station is on the air 6am-9pm daily.  

Students grades 7-12 from the Middletown Area School District are involved and take on various directorship roles. The station also airs various sporting events, public service shows, and church services.
