WJSE is a commercial alternative rock music radio station located in Linwood, New Jersey but licensed to neighboring Petersburg and broadcasting to the Atlantic City area on 102.7 FM. The station serves Atlantic, Cape May, Cumberland and Southern Ocean Counties in New Jersey.

From November 1999 until December 16, 2005 WJSE was the South Jersey home of the syndicated Howard Stern Show. On January 8, 2006 the Scotty and Alex Show replaced Stern after he moved his radio show to Sirius Satellite Radio and in February 2007 the syndicated Mancow Show replaced Scotty and Alex after the duo moved their show over to Free FM formated WYSP in Philadelphia.

On December 16, 2005 the last day of Howard Stern's terrestrial radio show WJSE along with many of the other soon to be former Stern affiliates including flagship station WXRK in New York City broadcast Stern's last show live over the Internet which until then was strictly forbidden under the syndication agreement between Stern, his production company One-Twelve, Inc., his employer CBS Radio, the syndicator Westwood One and the affiliates which broadcast The Howard Stern Show.

The station was a finalist for Radio and Records magazine's 2007 Industry Achievement Award for best Alternative Station for markets 100 and up. Other finalists include WKZQ-FM, KQXR, WBTZ, KXNA, and WSFM.[1]

By 2006, WJSE shifted from alternative rock as Digital 102.7 to active rock as 102.7 The Ace. As of late July 2008, 102.7 is no longer The Ace. It is now simply 102.7 JSE. Since the G106.3 station flipped to top 40 as Hit 106 in January 2009, the station returned to alternative rock.
