WSSS-LP is a low-power television station in Steubenville, Ohio, broadcasting locally on channel 29 as an affiliate of MTV2. The station is owned by Benjamin Perez and licensed to Abacus Television.


The station began transmission as a low-power class station in May 1998 on channel 25 as The Box, an automated music video channel. Like most over-the-air station airing The Box WSSS-LP became an affiliate of MTV2 after The Box was acquired by Viacom in 2001.

Due to nearby KDKA-TV commencing digital broadcasts on channel 25 WSSS-LP was temporarily forced off the air. The station returned to the air in July 2001 on channel 29 as a Class-A station.

Call Sign[edit]

This station is not related to the former WSSS-FM in Charlotte, North Carolina, WKQC-FM (owned by CBS Radio).
