101.7 WFNX, the longtime alternative rock station, signs off the air with live DJs for the last time today at 7:00pm. Here's the lineup for the station's final day:
- 6:00-11:00am Morning Guy Tai
- 11:00pm-2:00pm Jim Ryan
- 2:00pm-7:00pm Neal Robert
The station's frequency was sold to Clear Channel in May for $14.5 million. It's still unknown what Clear Channel will broadcast on the frequency.
So long old friend.
WFNX will live on in, really, two forms though one is more definable than the other.
Boston.com brought on several WFNX DJs (Paul Driscoll, Adam 12, Julie Kramer, Henry Santoro) to start a new venture Boston.com Radio, or RadioBDC. It's a pretty intriguing endeavor for a newspaper to take on. Most internet radio stations are free of DJs, or as I like to call them, soulless. It's still unclear exactly what the station will be like but we know for sure that it will sound like an actual radio station instead of just an iPod on shuffle.
WFNX will continue online, too, but what it will sound like is still uncertain.
