WTUX (101.1 FM) is an American album-oriented rock (AOR) radio station licensed to Gouldsboro, Maine, USA. The station is currently owned by Blueberry Broadcasting, LLC and simulcasts co-owned WTOS-FM.[1][2]

History[edit]

This station received its original construction permit from the Federal Communications Commission on May 25, 2006.[3] The new station was assigned the WLEK call sign by the FCC on April 30, 2009.[4]

In April 2008, permit holder Louis Vitali filed an application with the FCC to transfer the permit to a company he controlled, Blueberry Broadcasting, LLC. The transfer was approved by the FCC on April 30, 2008, and the transaction was consummated on June 4, 2008.[5]

On January 7, 2009, WLEK applied to change its community of license to Gouldsboro, Maine.[6] As of May 20, 2009, the FCC has accepted this application for filing but has taken no further action on the request.[6] WLEK received its license to cover with Machias as its community of license from the FCC on May 13, 2009.[7]

WLEK changed its call letters to WTUX on May 20, 2010[4] and in June 2010 signed on the air, simulcasting Augusta based WTOS.
