Ellsworth – On Tuesday, March 31st, music intensive radio station, Star 97.7, in Ellsworth is going to do something that it has never done before.  It is going to stop the music.

For one hour!

Co-owner/General Manager and afternoon host, Mark Osborne, says, “These unusual times call for unusual measures.  So on Tuesday, March 31st from 12:30 to 1:30, for the first time in the radio station’s history, Star 97.7 is going to stop the station’s “Smooth Rock ‘n Roll” music for one hour.  During that hour, our morning host, Paul Dupuis, will be interviewing two local physicians; Dr. Sheena Whittaker from N. Light Maine Coast Hospital in Ellsworth and Dr. Michael Murnik from N. Light Blue Hill Hospital.  Each physician will be answering questions live that will have been submitted from local citizens pertaining to the Covid-19 pandemic.”

Prior to this one hour, live program, Star 97.7 is inviting listeners to send in their personal coronavirus-themed questions for the doctors.  They may do so through the station’s Facebook page. Or, if they prefer to remain anonymous, they may write their questions and email them to: [email protected] .

“We are extremely grateful for this amazing public service being provided by two of our local Hancock County hospitals,” said Osborne.  “That these two physicians are taking time out of their already overloaded schedules to address the concerns of our local citizens, speaks volumes about the importance of the subject matter.”
