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.[5] In addition to its FM signal, WHAB's programming is carried on Acton Community Television and in the high school's cafeteria.
