WMCE (88.5 / 104.9 FM) is a jazz radio station in Erie, Pennsylvania, owned and operated by Mercyhurst College. WMCE is called JAZZ FM, "Erie's Jazz Station" and is a full time jazz station.

JAZZ FM's content is provided by local hosts, and weekly regional shows. Programs include: Jazz at Lincoln Center, Jazz Profiles, Jazz Variations, Radio Deluxe, Jazz Inspired, Latin Jazz Perspectives, and The Jazz Scene. Jazz Hosts include: Bob Protzman, Bonnie Grice, Jeff Fox, Tony Mowod, Scott Hanley, and Bob Studebaker.

The station is operated by local volunteers from Erie and by students from Mercyhurst College.

The station first signed on the air in February 1989. JAZZ FM converted to a jazz format on January 3, 2009.

JAZZ FM also broadcasts major Mercyhurst College sporting events (Ice Hockey, Football, Basketball) over the air and/or through the Internet by offering two audio streams, continuing jazz programming on air, while streaming the sporting events on the Internet.

Two of JAZZ FM's programs are non-jazz shows: "Despierta Latino" (the Spanish show that airs Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.) and "Polka Celebration" (Sundays from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.) The two local live programs have become traditions at Mercyhurst College.
