In 1938, local businessman Faust Couture wanted to bring Lewiston-Auburn its first radio station and he named it WCOU-AM. Dick Gleason purchased it in 1990 and over the years it has become WEZR-AM.
In 2014, WEZR-AM grew to add WEZR-FM and named it Z105.5 Lewiston-Auburn’s only FM station. Our unique live morning show, The Breakfast Club, features local businesses, non-profits, politicians, authors, athletes and musicians. Plus, we are the only radio station broadcasting high school sports.
In August 2016, we expanded our signal and are now called “Maine’s Big Z” simulcasting 80’s, 90’s through today on 92.7-FM and 105.5-FM, streaming online at www.mainesbigz.com and TuneIn radio.
The addition of our larger signal, 92.7, Maine’s Big Z is now Maine’s biggest hit music station. You can hear us from Kennebunkport to Newport…reaching a potential population of over 200,000 people (see our coverage map page).
Maine’s Big Z is also the exclusive radio partner of the Lewiston Auburn Metropolitan Chamber of Commerce and broadcast live at their monthly Chamber breakfast.
The Gleason Radio Group is locally owned by Dick Gleason and includes: Maine’s Big Z (92.7 & 105.5 & 1240), WOXO The OX – Country Format (96.9, 100.7 & 1450), SportsTime780.
