Island radio station will return as online only

Rock station WMVY in Vineyard Haven has raised the $600,000 needed to continue Internet-only radio operations this year after parent company Aritaur Communications sold its FM signal, 92.7, to WBUR in November.

A staple on Martha’s Vineyard for almost three decades, WMVY faced a total shutdown if it could not raise enough money to cover annual operating costs. Its successful pledge drive will keep WMVY alive as a nonprofit online station, streaming commercial-free music.
