WGUY (1230 AM) is a radio station licensed to Veazie, Maine, USA. The station is currently owned by Port Broadcasting, LLC.[1] The station signed on in November 2011 as a simulcast of co-owned WNZS. In May 2012 WGUY broke away from the WNZS simulcast, began simulcasting on 94.1 FM and broadcasting an oldies format. WGUY is also one of the flagship stations of the Black Bear Sports Network, carrying University of Maine basketball, baseball, and softball. In the event of a conflict between the Maine Black Bears' men's and women's basketball teams, the women's game is relocated to co-owned WBAN (formerly WNZS) or WCYR.[2]

On December 30, 2015, WGUY changed their format from oldies to a simulcast of soft adult contemporary-formatted WRMO 93.7 FM.[3]

On December 1, 2016, with the stations being sold to Port Broadcasting WGUY and W231CH broke the simulcast of WRMO. WGUY reverted to its Oldies format and W231CH began simulcasting WBAN, which inherited the soft AC format. [1] WRMO switched to the Maine Public Classical Network.
