I took over as General Manager at 91.1 FM in July of 2015. Previously, I served as News and Public Affairs Director at WMSV. I'm a graduate of Mississippi State University and a lifelong Mississippian. My goal is to make sure our station is highly effective every day in providing MSU, Starkville and the Golden Triangle with the best mix of music, news and info on local events.
On the weekends, you can catch me at Davis Wade Stadium doing the public address announcing for Mississippi State football or on the SEC Network+ broadcasting MSU softball and soccer. When I'm not working, I enjoy worshipping and serving at Grace Presbyterian Church in Starkville and hanging out with my family.
Howdy! I'm Courtney O'Brien from Vancleave, Ms, a graduate of MGCCC, and I'm Lead News Producer here at WMSV 91.1 World Class Radio! I'm a senior broadcasting major and I'll graduate in May. I plan to go to USM in the fall for my masters in Education. I'll eventually get my doctorate and hopefully teach at my Alma mater. I love long walks with my husky/heeled pup, creating recipes for my Chew on This food column in the Mississippi State University Reflector, and paint by the numbers. You can tune in to hear my dulcet tones weekdays for Observations from MSU, various deejay shifts, and nearly any time you walk into our radio station.
My name is Karanie Miller, I am a Senior Communication major at Mississippi State University. I fell in love with Radio through the process of elimination.

In the future, I hope to have my own show and hopefully become the next Rickey Smiley.

Vinny Brocato is as currently a sophomore majoring in history at Mississippi State. He has a very close connection to Starkville, living there his whole life, as well as with his amazingly supportive family. As a history major, Vinny spends most of his days reading articles and books, as well as writing essays on everything history related. When he is not hitting the books or an on- air DJ air WMSV, Vinny enjoys playing video games, collectible card and table top games, and he can often times be found at gigs and concerts happening around Starkville, whether it be performing with his band Girl Skouts, or supporting any and all local artists.
From the depths of Mauna Loa he arose. Fully grown and clad in obscure band t-shirts and Chuck Taylors. The legends said this day would come: it was the day Blake Stacy would come from the primordial volcanic ash of Hawaii and travel far across the seas. His mission, simple: bring a velvety bass to the airwaves of 91.1 WMSV. And so, on a raft made of palm leaves and tortoise shells, he braved his way to Mississippi State University and now occupies the 8pm to midnight shift ("BLAKE NIGHT") - spreading love and aloha through your FM transponder. ***DISCLAIMER*** Blake was actually born in Corinth, Mississippi and graduated from Biggersville High School. He is currently a senior at MSU studying Civil Engineering. He has been involved with WMSV since freshman year and lives a pretty normal life, but does hold tightly to his Hawaiian heritage
