WRMO FM (93.7 MHz) is a commercial radio station licensed to Milbridge, Maine owned by Pine Tree Broadcasting, LLC[1] that serves the Downeast coastal region of Maine including the city of Ellsworth and the towns of Bar Harbor and Machias. Known as “93-7 The Wave”, always playing “Refreshing and Relaxing Music”, the station features a Soft Adult Contemporary format.

History[edit]

WRMO originally was signed on in August 2005 as a 130 watt - class A classic rock station by owner and broadcast engineer Lyle Robert Evans of Green Bay, Wisconsin and station manager Mike McSorley. Less than a year later, in June 2006, the station’s ownership was transferred to the estate of Mr. Evans.

In September 2006 the estate entered into a purchase agreement for WRMO with Mike McSorley. From September 2006 to October 20, 2010 the station programmed an adult standards/oldies adult contemporary format known as “Songs You Know and Music You Love” from studios in Steuben, Maine. Citing financial difficulties, the station fell silent on October 20, 2010.

On June 26, 2011 the estate of Mr. Evans sold WRMO to Pine Tree Broadcasting, LLC. The station temporally returned to the air broadcasting with 130 watts from Milbridge on September 20, 2011 through November 8, 2011. On March 24, 2012 at 1:46 AM EST, WRMO returned to the air once again as an upgraded class B station broadcasting with 22,500 watts from its new tower site in Franklin, Maine.
