There are two other sports stations in the market, one to the south (1280
WFAU) and one to the east (620 WZON).  But the Skowhegan area, especially to
the north and west, isn't served by any other talk stations.   560 WGAN
doesn't come in all that well, and 103.9 WVOM's signal from Howland meets
interference from 103.7 WZPK Mount Washington.  Somerset and Franklin
Counties have no talk radio, save for what interactive programming WKTJ and
MPBC have to offer.
