George Hale, Maine's broadcasting legend, is celebrating his 85th birthday
on -air this morning at Bangor's WVOM.  Hale has been with WVOM and its
predecessor WABI since 1953, serving most of those days in the AM drive
time spot.  He continues to do occasional sports commentary on WABI-TV,
which is now under separate ownership.

I'm quite certain he is the senior broadcaster in New England in terms of
both age and tenure; it may be true nationally as well.

Congratulations, George!
