Maine Public has acquired Soft AC “93.7 The Wave” WRMO Milbridge/Bar Harbor ME from Charles Begin’s Pine Tree Broadcasting for $150,000. WRMO will flip to Maine Public’s Classical network on December 1. The Soft AC format will continue on 1230 WGUY Veazie/94.1 W231CH Bangor although morning host Paul Dupuis has announced he has exited as of last Friday. Maine Public Classical also airs on 91.5 WFYB Fryeburg and translators in Bangor, Portland and Waterville.
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.
