Boston.com To Launch Streaming Radio Station
When WFNX in Boston closes down on July 23rd many of the personalities will end up at the streaming station that will be parked at www.boston.com according to the The Boston Globe. Alternative WFNX is being sold to Clear Channel by Phoenix Media. Most of the staff will be let go after the sale. The Boston.com station will feature a variety of live programming: music, commentary, contests, interviews, and exclusive online content.
Publisher of the Boston Globe Chris Mayer said the station is an extension of what Boston.com already does. “It’s another way to engage readers or viewers who come to Boston.com looking for all things Boston. As a media company, our strategy is to offer products consistent with our brand that deliver value to advertisers and to our audience.”
