Alex Langer Launching Brazilian Programming On WJOE

WJOE (formerly the late, lamented WPNS [the worst choice of call letters in
the history of broadcasting]) is licensed to Orange, where the transmitter
is located and where the original (WCAT) studio building still stands.
I assume this proposal means the whole shebang will be leaving Orange-Athol
. . . or will the current transmitter act as a relay for western Mass.? I
wasn't aware there was a Brazilian market in that area. Apparently so.
It sticks in my mind that Langer is the current owner, though I may be
