CENTRAL BROADCASTING COMPANY Talk WPKZ-A-W287BT/FITCHBURG, MA is switching from the BOSTON RED SOX radio network after 45 years to the NEW YORK YANKEES network this season, reports the SENTINEL AND ENTERPRISE.
"It's strictly a business decision. We still love our SOX," host RAY CHALIFOUX told the paper, noting that SOX games are readly available on other stations but no local stations were carrying the YANKEES. He added that the station is considering airing the SOX' Triple A affiliate PAWTUCKET RED SOX games in addition to the YANKS.
