Beasley Media is adding an additional FM signal in Boston with the purchase of the CP for 106.1 W291CZ Boston from Radio-One for $400,000.
Radio-One had just purchased the former 94.1 W231BI Utica NY from Educational Media Foundation earlier this year for $40,000 and used the AM Revitalization Waiver to bring it to Boston where it was to rebroadcast 1090 WILD. Beasley will instead apply to have the translator rebroadcast their Brokered 1330 WRCA Watertown.
The translator is licensed to operate with 99w/222m from the Prudential Tower in downtown Boston. It will give Beasley an additional FM to go along with the five FMs it will be acquiring from Greater Media.
