New NPR radio station broadcasting in our area

WGBH 89.7 FM. What used to be an all Classical music station has moved today (Dec 1) to 99.5 FM leaving 89.7 FM WGBH open for more programming! This morning in my car I accidentally heard Diane Rehm talking to President Obama's half sister Maya Soetoro-Ng.  The Diane Rehm Show can now be heard as of today in our area from 10 - 11:30 am at 89.7 fm. If you are not familiar with this show you soon will be. She is a fantastic interviewer on a wide range of topics. We in Rhode Island welcome this change! Boston now has two NPR stations...WBUR and the new 89.7FM WGBH. I wonder what WRNI thinks of this change...? Here is the link to the DR show: http://wamu.org/programs/dr/

As you state - this is good for our listening area but I'm not so sure how good this is for WRNI. We'll see!
