WGBH will broadcast some television programming on the radio starting Tuesday, the Boston Globe reports. It's part of the station's move to transform 89.7-FM into a viable competitor for news powerhouse WBUR's 90.9-FM. The station will use existing shows such as the NewsHour and local Beat the Press, as well as create a new midday weekday public affairs show. The moves are part of WGBH’s purchase in September of classical music station WCRB-FM 99.5 for $14 million, which allowed WGBH to shift classical programming and convert 89.7 to an all news and talk station.
