“I am excited to work with the best news staff in the business as we keep finding ways to make innovative changes to live local news,” said Flaherty. “WBZ NewsRadio is combining its strong signal with an impactful social media presence to bring news and storytelling to people of all ages.”

“Rob’s vision has helped guide WBZ NewsRadio towards becoming a digitally focused news organization,” added iHeartMedia Boston Senior Vice President of Programming Dylan Sprague. “I’m glad that he will continue to be a part of our organization as he moves into the next part of his career.”

Additionally, Jay Borselle has been promoted to news director for the station.

“Bill’s experience paired with his shared vision of the future makes him the obvious choice to succeed Rob as program director. Jay is a consummate professional with a strong connection to the community, and we are thrilled to have him to lead our newsroom. I couldn’t be more excited about where WBZ NewsRadio is headed with Bill and Jay at the helm.”

The changes at WBZ will take effect on July 1st.
