WYSS is currently owned Sovereign Communications, who acquired it and fellow Sault stations WKNW and WMKD from Northern Star Broadcasting in 2010. After the February 9, 2010 sale announcement and management change, some positions at the stations were eliminated as part of Sovereign's consolidation of its new and old Sault radio operations (see Infobox); morning host/program director Tim Ellis and John "Johnny G" Gilbert (an original 1985 "Yes FM" staffer) were among those retained by Sovereign and remaining on Yes FM. Additionally, the station added the syndicated The Kidd Kraddick Morning Show to its morning drive-time slot in March 2010. (en)
