WFNX signal to become iHeartmedia (formerly Clear Channel)’s “The Harbor”

Clear channel just announced “˜FNX’s .7 signal will become WHBA-FM “The Harbor.”

WHBA will be iHeartmedia (formerly Clear Channel)‘s fifth radio station in the Greater Boston area and will “play anything,” according the company’s release. Why do I think anything means 500 very carefully-curated Top 40 songs? Surely, it doesn’t mean the Pixies or Dresden Dolls or Passion Pit.

This from the release:

“Unlike any other Boston radio station, 101.7 The Harbor will play a of music and styles spanning four decades.   WHBA-FM will feature from a variety of across the board such as Aerosmith, Bon Jovi, , , No Doubt, Def Leppard, AC/, Maroon 5, Van Halen, U2, Journey, Nirvana, Matchbox 20 and many more.   Listeners will also enjoy a commercial-free summer of music in celebration of Boston’s newest station 101.7 The Harbor.”

Not a terrible bunch of bands “” well, other than Matchbox 20 “” but no personality. Which isn’t surprising as it’s a iHeartmedia (formerly Clear Channel) station. If I listen this summer it will likely be because there are no adds and I stumble across “Hot for Teacher.”
