Blueberry Broadcasting has launched a Classic Hits trimulcast in Maine. The unique Classic Hits formats at 104.3 WABK-FM Gardiner/Augusta and “Big 104.7” WBAK Belfast/Bangor have been combined as “Big 104 FM“. Recently acquired 107.7 WBQI Bar Harbor becomes the third member of the trimulcast as WBKA. The Maine Edge reports Mike Dow and Deb Neuman will host mornings on the stations. Dow had been part of the long running “Mike & Mike” show on AC “Kiss 94.5” until October.
On September 1, Blueberry Broadcasting will change programming on a pair of its properties in Bangor, ME. Country “104.7 The Bear” WBFB Belfast will move to the 97.1 slot currently held by Sports WAEI-FM Bangor. The Bear country format will continue to be heard on its simulcast partners 99.1 WLKE Bar Harbor and 103.3 WMCM Rockland/Augusta. No word on what will head to 104.7. “Fox Sports 97.1” WAEI-FM was recently replaced as co-flagship of University of Maine Hockey by sister CHR “Kiss 94.5” WKSQ. Regardless, WAEI-FM’s programming will remain on 910 WAEI.
