Pelege Marcellin buys Boston radio station 1620 1640

BROCKTON – A Haitian migrant’s dream is to invest in his community, and he did it the best way he knows how, through music and culture.

Pelege Marcellin, 44, made an important financial decision this year to buy Radio Boston Energya radio station located in Mattapan.

The Brockton resident felt there was a lack of representation of Haitian music and culture on the Boston radio scene, Marcellin said.

The local radio station on 1620/1640 (AM, FM) has been in operation for 22 years and continues to operate.

The space is freshly remodeled to give guests and talent a clean, contemporary feel.

“My goal is to create a media hub not just for Haitians and their culture, but for everyone. We plan to have different programs to cater to many demographic groups,” Marcellin said.

Pelege Marcellin, 44, of Brockton, on Friday, Oct. 7, 2022, recently purchased a Boston radio station, which he would like to turn into a hub for Haitian music and culture, as well as other diverse programs .

The new purchase was based on Marcellin’s passion for music and art.

“I see it as an investment in the community,” Marcellin said.

When Marcellin isn’t building a new radio station, he’s working on his two established businesses, Quabizion Multi Services, a legal document provider, and Brockton Home Health Care, a senior health care service with over 175 employees.

In the future, Marcellin hopes to grow all of his businesses and become a mentor for young professionals who want to take the path of entrepreneurship.
