WLOB Portland Celebrates 50th

My goodness, the FM has a convoluted history! I can add more: The current
WLOB-FM that was WWMR was WRUM-FM even before that. I remember that when I
first came here in the mid-'70s it simulcast the parent AM, which was a real
old-fashioned small-town full service station. (CBS affiliate.) I think
Mel Stone may have owned WRUM at the time.

J.J. Jeffrey owns WLOB. He is one of the few owners who would consider such
history to be important.
The current WLOB-FM has a much different history than WLOB. It was formerly
WWMR Rumford before being bought by Carter Broadcasting. The current 97.9
WJBQ was the original WLOB-FM in the early 70's and there was later a
WL)B-FM at 100.9, which is now WYNZ-FM.
