Well, I used to consult WEGP a long time ago, and it's in some rather
barren territory-- number one in 18-24 caribou and moose... but all joking
aside, even 20 years ago, the AM covered a lot of cities and towns in
Northern Maine, and the sales dept was trying to sell it like a regional
station. Is there enough business in a bad economy? That I cannot answer,
but the owners must think so or they wouldn't have spent the money...
