HistoryEdit

Towson University established W61BT in 1991 as a student television station. In the mid-1990s, the station served as the local affiliate for The WB, until it moved to WNUV in January 1998. After a brief stint as an America One affiliate, WMJF flipped to MTV2 in 2004. WMJF was also a CNN student bureau, one of only two in the country.

WMJF was a 90% student run organization, operated under faculty advisers Dr. John MacKerron and Dr. David Reiss, and an executive board of five elected and appointed positions that they deemed necessary to help operate the station.

Towson University sold WMJF-LP to LocusPoint Networks in December 2012. The deal closed on August 8, 2013. LocusPoint then sold WMJF-CD to HME Equity Fund III on April 8, 2018. Towson University continued to operate the station until 2019. Programming and operations are handled remotely via satellite feed.
