Radio Station WFWM is a public broadcast radio station headquartered at Frostburg State University in the Stangle Building. WFWM provides 24 hours of cultural and educational programming to the western most area of Maryland and adjacent areas of West Virginia and Pennsylvania. WFWM's main transmitter is located on Dans Mountain in Midland, Maryland and operates at a frequency of 91.9 MHz. A secondary transmitter is located in Oakland, Maryland and operates at a frequency of 96.3 MHz.

Some of WFWM's daily programming includes: locally produced programming and news as well as the public syndicate network of National Public Radio (NPR), the Associated Press, and National Weather Service. WFWM's musical programming includes: Classical, Jazz, Big Band, Blues, Celtic, Bluegrass, World, and Alternative, but most of its time is devoted to NPR and PRI news and talk programming and classical music. All of the student-run programming has been pushed off the station and onto an intranet radio station identified by the WFWM web site as XFSR. XFSR is an intranet radio station only broadcasting over the Frostburg State University network and not on the internet.
