Clear Channel Dumps EDM For Country In Boston


Greater Media will be getting a little Country competition in Beantown. Clear Channel has flipped its EDM station after 18 months to "107.1 The Bull." The station will be commercial-free all summer and eventually pipe in the Bobby Bones syndicated morning show. Greater Media's WKLB has been the Country dominator in Boston, which is live and local all day. Evolution 101.7 will continue on iHeartRadio and online at

Vice President of Programming for Clear Channel Boston Dylan Sprague said, “We are excited to launch 101.7 The Bull, a fresh new take on country music, for our Boston listeners. This station is for the new generation of country music fans and will give our listeners a front-row seat to country’s biggest artists and concerts. Listeners will also enjoy waking up with the Bobby Bones Show and his unique and entertaining insight on country music. No one is closer to the heartbeat of Nashville than Bobby Bones.”

Get your frequencies straight. It's WEDX, Evolution 101.7, that's now country. And they'll dump that format soon enough after the clittle class A station fails against giant Class B WKLB.

Truly upsetting as this was my primary radio station. Boston radio stations needs to be more diversed and they pull this nonsense with ANOTHER country station.

So disappointing that this change happened. This was the only station for Boston listeners to get their edm fix. Great songs awesome listening and the best way to go to work in the morning. Country is depressing and not worth the switch. I know this won't change anything but had to be said. Pete Tong get the evolution back on FM radio!
