Portland Radio Group Company Information
- United States
NewsRadio 98.5 FM and AM 560 WGAN is Southern Maine�s Radio news authority with the resources of CBS News, local newscasts seven days a week and exclusive AccuWeather forecasts. WGAN is also home to some of talk radio�s biggest stars including local opinion shapers Matt Gagnon in the morning and Howie Carr afternoons. Since 1938, Mainers have counted on WGAN for up-to-date information and topical talk, and our commitment lives on today with a curious, opinionated and engaged audience of adult listeners over the age of 45 and skewing Male. A 2021 study conducted by Edison Research for NPR labels these listeners �Infomaniacs� who prefer the spoken word format, are among the most educated and affluent of all Radio listeners, and two-thirds of whom are more attentive to commercials because they�re woven into the talk Radio experience. Advertisers frequently pair NewsRadio WGAN with Rewind 100.9, The Bay or Pure Oldies to deliver news and talk listeners when they�re in a more relaxed, recreational mode.
