Foster parent for Citadel orphan


The Last Bastion Station Trust is a temporary home for displaced Citadel Broadcasting stations placed in local cap jeopardy during the group’s merger/acquistion deal with Disney/ABC, and under the TLC of Media Venture Partners’ Elliot Evers. It now has a buyer for a second and final FM in the Portland ME market. Noncommercial Education Media Foundation will step up and claim WCYI-FM Lewiston ME for an as-yet-undisclosed price. EMF recently agreed to by a station not too far from here in the Portsmouth-Rochester-Dover NH market. Citadel’s other Portland spin-off, WCLZ-FM, was snapped up by Saga Communications last summer.
