What’s Next

Late last night, iHeartMedia reached a deal with SAG-AFTRA, the union representing WBZ employees.  Thanks to your support, iHeartMedia will be keeping all of WBZ’s employees on staff through the transition.

While this is incredible news, this is only a short term agreement that will be in effect while the station changes hands.  WBZ employees may need support during the next round of negotiations–and if they do, you’ll hear from us.

More than 950 WBZ listeners and supporters across the country signed our petition–which sent more than 950 emails to iHeartMedia’s regional leadership, WBZ advertisers, and elected officials.  Tonight, the Boston Globe is crediting our petition as a key part of shutting down iHeartMedia’s initial plan.

WBZ is a special institution that New Englanders–at home or at heart–don’t take for granted.  We’ll be ready to lead this fight again if we have to, and we’ll be counting on you to join in.

Keep listening,

  • Very happy that WBZ 1030 will be keeping their employees. I have been listening to this station for several years and it is my ‘ go to’ station in the morning at home and in the car !!! They keep us informed and updated news and weather.Great radio station !

  • I have listened to WBZ AM 1030 for years.years. I listen to National News on CBS Boston. If the new owners make the changes they propose I will find other news and entertainment. I agree with WBZ NightSide with Dan Rea this is a very determined and loyal audience that is closer than some families.

  • Honest to god, WBZ has always been the go-to station for New Englanders who need to know.

    Any entity that tries to go on the cheap with this crown jewel of New England broadcasting will find themselves under intense pressure from long-time listeners and advertisers.
