Arbitron's Maine rated markets are:

Portland 219,000
Augusta-Waterville 97,000
Lewiston-Auburn 85,000
Bangor 72,000

I swear to you that French is nowhere near "as predominant as 
English" in any of those places.  :)

And, while it's true that Guam is larger than Augusta, I'm guessing 
there's more advertiser and radio station interest in buying ratings 
reports for Augusta.
