Make Waves-Keep Local News on FM
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.
Every day WHAV brings 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.
97.9 WHAV broadcasts over a larger footprint than the original—reaching all of Haverhill and into every surrounding community and beyond. As state Rep. Brian S. Dempsey pointed out during the recent dedication of the new FM signal, “that was no easy task and an uphill battle. And, people in the industry were, I think, not only impressed, but amazed that you were able to do that successfully.”
With the formal dedication—taking place during a live broadcast on the 70th anniversary of the original WHAV—behind, it’s time to retire the debt and use the money to deliver more local programs and sustain nonprofit WHAV going forward.
