Dance station replaces WFNX on the FM dial

Clear Channel Media and Entertainment launched an electronic dance music radio station in Boston on 101.7 FM Thursday, the former signal of alternative rock station WFNX. The news ends months of speculation about what Clear Channel would do with the frequency it purchased from the Phoenix Media/Communications Group in May for $14.5 million.

The new station, Evolution 101.7 WHBA, will broadcast the same electronic dance music featured on Clear Channel’s iHeartRadio Internet station Evolution.
