Boston.com to launch streaming radio station

Boston.com is getting into the radio business. The website will announce Monday a plan to launch a live streaming radio station featuring alternative music and well-known personalities from WFNX-FM. (The longtime alternative music station, 101.7 on the radio dial and owned by Phoenix Media/Communications Group, is being sold to Clear Channel Communications.)

The Boston.com station will have a presence on the website’s homepage, according to Lisa DeSisto, general manager of Boston.com and chief advertising officer for The Boston Globe, and it will feature a variety of live programming: music, commentary, contests, interviews, and exclusive online content.
