Make Waves-Keep Local News on FM

WHAV , the Haverhill, Mass. radio station where Hollywood’s Tom Bergeron received his start, is back…thanks to your help.

97.9 WHAV FM is on the air! As the only Haverhill-based news source, WHAV delivers original and exclusive local news, weather, Community Spotlight and other local programs. Its unique blend of music from rock and roll’s heyday is also a solid hit.

Construction of the new WHAV left behind a big debt. Paying for it isn't easy and takes money away from news and community service programs. Help pay off the cost of building 97.9 WHAV.

WHAV gives Haverhill an independent voice and facts that only excellent journalism provides. With support, it will serve as a model for other community media efforts.

Help WHAV continue to “Make Waves”—literally and figuratively—with your generous contribution right now.
