By on Jun, 13 2014 with Comment 1

WEDXCCME’s Evolution 101.7 EDM/Dance WEDX-FM Boston has flipped to Country 6/13. The station is branded as “101.7 FM The Bull – Boston’s New Hit Country.” 101.7 The Bull kicked off with commercial-free music for the entire summer featuring the newest hits from Country artists such as Luke Bryan, Jason Aldean, Blake Shelton, Carrie Underwood, Kenny Chesney, Eric Church and Miranda Lambert.

The Bull will feature The Bobby Bones Show beginning this summer.  Programming will also include local news and events, exclusive album premieres, new song releases and a team of local Boston personalities to be announced soon.

It will compete with Greater Media’s hertiage (2006) Country WKLB-FM, which was second in May PPMs with a 6.8 share 6+.

“We are excited to launch 101.7 The Bull, a fresh new take on Country music, for our Boston listeners.  This station is for the new generation of Country music fans and will give our listeners a front-row seat to Country’s biggest artists and concerts,” said Dylan Sprague, VP/Programming for Clear Channel Media and Entertainment Boston.  “Listeners will also enjoy waking up with the Bobby Bones Show and his unique and entertaining insight on Country music.  No one is closer to the heartbeat of Nashville than Bobby Bones.”

Boston’s EDM fans can continue to listen to Evolution 101.7 on the station’s website, www.evolution1017.com, on 107.9 HD2 and on iHeartRadio.
