MPBN Aid 

MPBN announced last month it would close its radio stations in Calais and Fort Kent, as well as its TV station in Calais to save money.

That’s in response to cuts in state and federal funding.

The shutdown would save the network $71,000 a year.

A spokesman says Governor Baldacci feels that $71,000 is not a lot of money when it comes to statewide communications, and that the money can be found somewhere.
