One of Maine's best singers could win a cool $10,000!

Z-107.3 covers a huge chunk of the state of Maine. We can be heard as far as Lincoln, and Bar Harbor, and into the Augusta/Waterville area as well, so it's always fun to spotlight some of the fun events that happen outside of the Bangor area, especially during summer.

Central Maine Idol is returning to Hallowell this summer for Season 2!

They are on the hunt for the best singers in Central Maine, with a $10,000 Grand Prize on the line for the winner. Not too shabby.

I have many fond memories of our annual Z-107.3 Eastern Maine Idol competition at the Bangor Mall, which we used to host each year with Fox 22 in Bangor. We saw so many amazing singers during the time that we were able to be a part of it.

Last year, the first Central Maine Idol winner was Katie Oberholtzer, who hails from Cape Elizabeth. She outlasted so many talented people from all over the state of Maine.

There were different types of theme nights during the competition last year, like 80’s night, where contestants belted out classics from Whitney Houston, U2, and Guns N’ Roses. Also, a country night with selections from Carrie Underwood, Darius Rucker, and Martina McBride. And you can expect more of the same this summer.
