WXMS-LP (channel 27) was a television station in Jackson, Mississippi affiliated with MeTV. The station began broadcasting in December 1999 as an affiliate of both the WB and UPN networks. The WB was WXMS's primary affiliation while UPN was its secondary affiliation. On October 7, 2001, WXMS became a primary UPN affiliate after ceding its WB affiliation to sister station WDBD, which had defected from the Fox network.
WXMS was sold by Jackson Television to Roundtable Broadcasting in early 2010. Roundtable Broadcasting filed to sell WXMS and WDBD to American Spirit Media in July 2012. As part of the deal, the station's operations were taken over by Raycom Media, owner of WLBT, under a shared services agreement; American Spirit also acquired WBMS-CA from Vicksburg Broadcasting.
WXMS, which had only ever operated through a series of special temporary authority grants in lieu of a permanent license, left the air on February 11, 2013. In advance of the most recent STA's expiration on January 13, 2014, American Spirit Media on January 2 returned the station's construction permit to the Federal Communications Commission, which cancelled it the next day.
