WHAB (89.1 FM) is a high school radio station licensed to serve Acton, Massachusetts. The station is owned by Acton-Boxborough Regional High School and licensed to the Acton-Boxborough Regional School District. It airs a high school radio format.[2] WHAB is one of more than a dozen FCC-licensed high school radio stations in the state of Massachusetts.[3]

The station was assigned the WHAB call letters by the Federal Communications Commission.[4]

After technical issues that left the station silent for a time in the early 1990s, WHAB returned to full-time broadcasting in 1995. WHAB goes LIVE during the school year, on 89.1 FM, Acton Community Television, and the High School Cafeteria.[5]
