CHARLES B. BEGIN's PINE TREE BROADCASTING, LLC's closing on the purchase of Oldies WGUY-A/VEAZIE, ME and W231CH/BANGOR, ME from INNOVATIVE ADVERTISING CONSULTANTS INC. and News-Talk WWNZ-A and News-Talk WNZS-A/VEAZIE-BANGOR, ME from WATERFRONT COMMUNICATIONS, INC. has led to a format flip at WWNZ. PINE TREE BROADCASTING WWNZ-A now changed to Classic Country and is branded as "THE COUNTRY ROAD."
