Blueberry Broadcasting is a Kennebunkport, Maine-based media company owning radio stations throughout the Mid Coast and Central Maine regions. The company is headed by Bruce Biette, Vice President and CEO, and Louis Vitali, President. Studios are located in Augusta, Rockland and Bangor, with additional locations in Ellsworth and Pittsfield.

History[edit]

Vitali previously ran Mariner Broadcasting, then-owner of the WBACH classical network and WQEZ. Blueberry bought the 17 Clear Channel Broadcasting stations in May 2008 for $11 million [1]. In order to comply with Federal Communications Commission rules, WGUY and WFZX were sold off, eventually being sold to Educational Media Foundation.

As of October 2015, Blueberry Broadcasting owns 16 stations.
