In February 2019, longtime Maine radio station owner Dick Gleason lost his battle with ALS, at the age of 71.
Thirteen months later, the stations licensed to the company he founded were silenced under a temporary STA request with the FCC. The reason cited? The COVID-19 pandemic severely impacted the financial stability of the operation.
Now, the stations, which have been for sale since Gleason’s passing, have found a new owner and will return to broadcasting.
