I'm not aware that WHEB (AM) was ever put up for sale.  The way I 
understand it, Knight offered to turn in the license for 750 & tear 
down the tower in exchange for the city of Portsmouth approving a 
taller tower for 100.3.   Even if Bob had gotten the license, he 
still would have had to build a new facility...I'm guessing not an 
easy or inexpensive proposition given the amount of NIMBYs in Portsmouth.

Again, even if the CP could be had for a song the actual (1) buildout 
and (2) operating costs of a signal that would likely serve a lot of 
moose would be prohibitive.  Haven't seen the proposed pattern, but 
like most new AM allocations, I'd guess that it avoids most human 
population centers.
