May 15, 2007 at 7:45 AM (PT)
In a unique arrangement, noncommercial WGBH-F/BOSTON will provide news reports three times each morning for crosstown GREATER MEDIA commercial AAA WBOS, starting tomorrow (5/16). WGBH news reports anchored by DAN TRITLE will air at 6:15, 7:15, and 8:15 each weekday morning.
"We are really excited about this unique partnership," said WBOS PD DAVID GINSBURG."This partnership presents a unique opportunity for two local radio stations to work together for mutual benefits.
"While we are keeping the focus on music in the morning, our audience told us they did want a little bit of news," added GINSBURG. "But we needed the news content and delivery to match our listeners’ core values and expectations. That’s where WGBH fits in so well."
"We’re pleased that our news service will be serving a new audience," said WGBH Dir./Radio Stations JOHN VOCI. "And excited to further develop our news, broadcast and online services, in collaboration with a fellow broadcast partner in the community."
