J.J. Jeffrey to buy WXGL

The Times Record reported on Thursday that J.J. Jeffrey's Atlantic Coast LLC
has reached agreement to purchase 95.5 WXGL Topsham. The article says that
no immediate changes in WXGL's classic rock programming are planned but it
seems likely that WXGL will end up being simulcast with Jeffrey's other FM,
95.9 WRED Saco. What the format of the combination will be is anyone's guess
but the combination will take two marginal rimshotters and by putting them
together end up with coverage of much of southern Maine.
Just to blow my own horn: I predicted this purchase a few months ago when it
was announced that Jeffrey would hold on to WRED, WJAE, and WJJB after the
sale of Fuller-Jeffrey's stations to Citidel.
