WXME (780 AM) is a radio station located in Monticello, Maine, United States serving the Northern Maine market and broadcasts a news/talk and rock music format. The station is owned and operated by Allan Weiner, who also owns the shortwave station WBCQ. WXME's broadcast facilities are co-located with WBCQ shortwave and WBCQ-FM 94.7.
WXME was formerly known as WCXH 780, WREM 710, and WOZW 710.
In the summer of 2007, the station moved to 780 kHz, increased power to 5,000 watts daytime non-directional and 60 watts nighttime non-directional, and changed its call sign to WCXH, simulcasting Channel X Radio from Caribou, Maine.
By 2008, WCXH had dropped the Channel X Radio simulcast; on September 10, 2008, the station changed its call letters to WXME. In 2009 the station carried a talk radio format largely from Fox News Radio. From March 2010 to July 2010 the station simulcasted Central Maine-based WSKW's oldies format before reverting to the previous News/Talk format. In February 2011 the station returned to a simulcast of WEGP. In the summer of 2014 WXME changed to an oldies/classic hits format before reverting to a News/Talk format in early 2015. In 2018, WXME obtained a license for an FM translator on 98.3 FM. Since then, the station has broadcast a news/talk format during the daylight hours and rock music at night.
