New FM Radio Station Signs On in Portland, Maine
Portland, Maine- There’s a New Coast in Maine! It’s the all-
new Coast 93.1 FM radio…#1 for the 80’s, 90’s and Now! On Thursday
March 9, 2006 at 2:00PM, after thirty years of broadcasting, WMGX
Radio signed off the air and the new Coast 93.1 was launched.
Coast 93.1 is a fresh radio station, with an exciting, upbeat sound
that will energize Portland listeners. The music mix will feature
80’s icons such as, Madonna, Prince Duran Duran, and from the 90’s
Smashmouth, Sugar Ray, Sheryl Crow plus hot, new artists like Kelly
Clarkson, Green Day and Fall Out Boy.
In order to highlight the music, Maine’s Coast 93.1 will debut without
radio personalities. President and General Manager Cary Pahigian
explained, “The Coast 93.1 music mix is very unique. We think
showcasing the music as much as possible in the next few weeks is very
important. We are also excited to announce that the popular morning
show, featuring Tim, Jaime and Eva, will return. This has been a very
successful morning show for 10 years running and their personalities
are a great fit for Coast 93.1.”
Mr. Pahigian continued, “Coast 93.1 will be targeting listeners who
love music from the 80’s, the 90’s and today. We undertook an
extensive research study and found there to be a significant void for
this type of music in Portland. Coast 93.1 will be an entertaining
station that is fresh, high energy and promises wall to wall music.”
Portland Radio Group, the largest radio operator in Maine, is Coast
93.1, Newsradio 560 WGAN, Today’s Country 101.9 WPOR, Oldies 100.9
WYNZ, Imus in the Morning 970 WZAN, and Music of Your Life 1400/1490
