BOSTON (AP) — The Boston Herald is starting a new Internet radio station.
Boston Herald Radio goes live at 6 a.m. Aug. 5 and will broadcast for 12 hours each weekday. Listeners can play the station at bostonherald.com, on the paper's news and sports apps, or at tunein.com.
The paper says Herald reporters, columnists and critics will provide commentary and analysis. There will be four shows daily, including one focused on sports.
The station will stream from a studio next to the Herald newsroom in the Boston Seaport District.
Last year The Boston Globe hired most of the popular DJs from alternative radio station WFNX and started RadioBDC, which streams mostly music programming from Boston.com, the Globe's current events and entertainment news site.
