Former WMEI logo as a MegaTV affiliate between 2009 and 2011.

WMEI was founded on February 28, 1990 by Locally-Owned Arecibo Broadcasting Systems managed by Hector Negroni Cartagena.

On December 28, 1994 WMEI Launches WWKQ-LP Channel 26, a Low Power TV Station in Quebradillas owned by Signal Broadcasting.

Also WMEI Began Operations for WQQZ-CA Channel 33 in Ponce On February 12, 1999 also owned by Signal Broadcasting.

WMEI Channel 60 began its regular programming in November 2006, and was an affiliate of Telefe Internacional branded as Mi 60 from 2006 to 2007, showing Informercials from 4PM to 12AM.

WMEI Channel 60 officially Launches Operations as an Independent station on March 20, 2007 at 6:25AM, & it is Branded as TeleMar Puerto Rico from 2007 to 2009, from 2011 to 2013 and Again Since May 11, 2014. WMEI is currently a dual affiliate of PBJ & Tuff TV, while WOST is an affiliate of the Spanish version of The Local AccuWeather Channel.

In March 2007, WMEI Launched its Digital Satellite Station in Mayaguez, WOST Channel 16.

WMEI switches affiliations becoming an affiliate of Spanish Broadcasting System's Mega TV on November 23, 2009.

WMEI, along with its satellite stations, was off the air for several months in early 2009. This was due to WMEI and WOST having shut down their analog signals in January 2009 to prepare for the digital transition. However, due to the transition date being delayed until June 12, 2009 (from its original February 17 date) and WTIN and WNJX-TV opting to retain their analog signals on WMEI and WOST's post transition channels until June, WMEI and WOST could not begin digital broadcasts until WTIN and WNJX terminated their analog signals.

WMEI was affiliated with Mega TV on November 23, 2009;[1] the affiliation was previously on WSJU-TV. Prior to this, WMEI had carried a Spanish-language version of The Local AccuWeather Channel, and before that was an independent station.

WMEI became affiliated once again in February 2013, this time with TeLe-Romantica, U.S. Spanish Entertainment Network, which Programming Includes: Telenovelas, Movies, Series & Documentaries. TeLe-Romantica resumes operations in August 2014 due to the station's website failure, and moves its programming to WSJU-TV channel 31.2.

In November 2013, Power Television International acquired the non-license assets of WMEI & its Satellite Stations from Corporate Media Consultants Group for $18 million.
