WGBH Will Buy Classical Radio Station WCRB

(From The Boston Globe -- By Megan Woolhouse)

Public TV and radio giant WGBH will buy one of the country's few remaining 24-hour commercial classical radio stations, WCRB 99.5 FM, station officials said today.

WGBH officials would not disclose the price, saying that the deal had not been reviewed by THE FEDERAL COMMUNICATIONS COMMISSION.

WGBH already operates the radio stations WGBH 89.7 in Boston and WCAI and WNCK on the Cape and islands.

"It's a fabulous opportunity," said WGBH spokeswoman JEANNE HOPKINS. "It comes along rarely and we felt able to make the acquisition work financially and in every other way."
