WHAV staff will be on hand to discuss the radio station’s plans for a new FM outlet at 98.1 on the dial.

Under the auspices of the Merrimack Valley Chamber of Commerce, the business event takes place from 5 to 7 p.m., Wed., Nov. 5, at DiBurro’s of Ward Hill, 887 Boston Road (route 125), Haverhill. There will be complimentary food and prizes.

The WHAV call letters have been associated with local broadcasting since 1947. WHAV is today operated by Public Media of New England Inc., a not-for-profit corporation. Since 2004, the call has served the Merrimack Valley’s pioneer Internet radio station at WHAV.net and a number of public access cable television stations in Andover, Haverhill and Methuen, and Plaistow and Sandown, N.H. The station is also heard over AM 1640 in northern Haverhill and Plaistow, N.H. The Federal Communications Commission has tentatively selected WHAV to receive a new FM license at 98.1 MHz.
