Evolution 101.7 no more, “The Bull” is in Boston

At the end of 2012, Clear Channel Media & Entertainment launched the Electronic Dance Music (EDM) station, after a $14.5 million signal purchase from Phoenix Media/Communications Group. Just days ago, however, EDM was replaced by “The Bull”, which claims to be “a new brand of country.”

The new station will run commercial-free for the entire summer. It will feature an award-winning syndicated program, based in Nashville, “The Bobby Bones Show” among other locally based programs, to be announced soon.

In direct competition with Boston’s longtime WKLB Country 102.5, Dylan Spraque, Vice President of Programming for Clear Channel Media and Entertainment Boston, in a press release, says “The Bull” is “for the new generation of Country Music fans.”

Evolution 101.7, Clear Channel’s first EDM broadcast station in it’s company history, willcontinue to air on 107.9 HD2 and will be streamed online.  Fans of the station have already begun protesting the abrupt switch.
