Will WMEX go silent forever?

We have no idea whether there's a new negotiated lease or not.  And, if a 
station goes silent, it doesn't have to notify the FCC until its off  for 15 
consecutive days, at which time, they would apply for "Special Temporary  
Authority" ($190.00 fee).
So nothing can be assumed about WMEX's demise  yet.

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?
The former home of  Arnie Ginsburg and Jerry Williams.
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
