Changes are ahead in the local public radio landscape. WGBH, which bills itself as NPR’s “Arts and Culture” station, is acquiring WCRB, one of the country’s few commercial classical radio stations.

WGBH officials said WCRB will remain a classical station, freeing WGBH to offer more news and talk, within two months.

WBUR’s Bob Oakes spoke about the deal with Dan Kennedy, a media commentator who frequently appears on WGBH-TV and teaches journalism at Northeastern University.
