Well well well....what an interesting turn of events....doesn't suprise me
one bit. I beleive (I am not sure) that I made a post asking if the sale
was even legaql in the first place....I am glad, both for ZoneCorp, for
listeners  of Bangor radio, and even Cumulus to an extent, because the
ownsership of all those stations by Clear Channel would have given them a
terribly unfair advantage over the other two companies in the market....

Forwarded this to a friend of mine who works there and none of the
employees were even aware of this.....just out of curiosity, not that I
don't beleive it, I do..... but where can I find the info on this? Does
anyone know?
