1120 is now WBNW, a business news format owned by Money Matters Radio in
Needham where the studios were moved to, though the transmitter is still
the same directional 5kW day/1KW night site in Acton. It also now runs an
82 watt translator at 102.9 FM from the Acton site.

As the folk format became difficult to sustain by 1997, WADN began running
network business talk programming at times, and the folk music was soon
dropped. Money Matters bought the station in 1998 and changed the calls to
WBNW. It never went dark.
