I will hope that WMWM isn't another target of WUMB's manifest destiny.
There was a bit of a dustup awhile back when WUMB tried to put up a
repeater that would have spelled the end for WAVM 91.7, Maynard Public
Schools, but it was settled...

As far as the signal goes, most radios can get both WUMB and WMWM once
you move a mile or so from the SSC campus--sometimes even as "close"
as Riley Plaza, so would they make that effort just to get exclusivity
in the Witch City as well as everywhere else?

But yes, given limited resources ($), it would be tough for WMWM to
fight the UMass folks.
Unless SSC  Pres. Nancy Harrington were to somehow work with local pols (Rep.
Tierney, an SSC alum; or even Beverly's own Lt. Gov Murphy-Healey) to
try to pressure
WUMB to back off...
