Will WMEX go silent forever?

Speaking of the 'MEX signal. Before being hired by WBZ I spent some time doing news at 1510. When I did the night gig I got frequent calls from Newfoundland.
I can't figure out why they listened, but like most Canadians they were very polite.

How's this for Boston radio history..WMEX could be gone with its last show
being a silly gagfest? Remember that WHDH 850 toilet flush?

On Friday June 30 at 6 pm, WMEX 1510 fell silent.The transmitter lease was
apparently not renewed and it sounds like Daly LLC is exiting the Boston
airwaves.There was said to be a new owner waiting but so far no official
word.No word yet of a temporary silent authorization.Will the FCC delete
the frequency and calls eventually? Or will someone step forward and buy a
station with no current transmitter site or agreement...AM radio with a
signal that goes out to sea? Will Salem step up, or maybe iHeart..or who?

Am out of area but some say a NJ station comes in faintly at night.

I don't know if it got through on the air but (on the stream) the last
caller said, "I'm gonna miss you (expletive)." After a second cuss word the
host joked about getting a huge FCC fine but hey who cares, let's go out
