The new WGBH lineup
Wed Nov 18 10:48:24 EST 2009

We up heah in Maine still have questions about what's going to happen 
with the W-BACH stations once WCRB is transitioned from Nassau to WGBH. 
  The Maine stations and WCRB "share staff", which is to say that much 
of W-BACH's programming is (it would seem) done at the WCRB studio with 
WCRB hosts:
Ray Brown, Listo Fisher,  Does anyone know whether they will 
continue with the Maine network?
