Our Story

WUSM-FM (88.5 fm) broadcasts from the Hattiesburg campus of the University of Southern Mississippi. WUSM celebrates American roots music with a strong Mississippi influence from a 60,000 plus music library. WUSM’s programming can be found streaming on the Internet at www.SouthernMissRadio.com. (WUSM Website 2014)

“Roots” music is music that is considered to be pure Americana. Roots music is defined by its local, regional, and cultural values. Rock and Roll, Rhythm and Blues, Folk, Country, Adult Alternative, and Jazz define WUSM, and our roots heritage. Even though roots music varies from region to region throughout the entire United States, artists from Mississippi have proven over the years that we are on the musical forefront in several of the leading formats, and genres. WUSM defines Roots Radio because they have continued to represent our traditions, beliefs and cultural values, even while operating with a budget between slim to none. The station at USM promotes and supports local artists, and music, as well as local businesses. Without local support and community leaders like WUSM, the coverage area would just be another blip in bland radio. WUSM's coverage area serves the surrounding Pine Belt community. It is the responsibility at SG Productions to aid WUSM in a crowdfunding campaign in order to raise awareness of the station in the Hub City/Pine Belt Region. However, to continue to operate, WUSM requires your help and support. WUSM exists through the generosity of its listeners. By sponsoring WUSM and pledging a small generous donation, you are helping acquire crucial broadcasting equipment, licensing, utilities while allowing WUSM to move past the limitations and confines of a being a community radio station located in the heart of campus.
