So does that mean WHQO will no longer simulcast WVOM?  If so, what will be
the programming on WHQO?  WSKW?

I thought I heard WHQO and WCME broadcasting different talk shows yesterday
but WCME was coming in so poorly I couldn't be sure.

I love WCTB, by the way.  I hope the format stays the same.  I live in
Bowdoinham but work in Waterville so I am a regular listener when I am in
the range of the station.

Why did the LMA end?

I heard a rumor that WCME will no longer simulcast WVOM but is going to a
sports format instead?  Is that true?  Does that mean Augusta will be
without a talk station again?
