CBS RADIO Sports WBZ (THE SPORTS HUB)/BOSTON has named ADAM JONES as its new nights host, starting WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 2nd. JONES, who previously did fill-in work at WBZ, also hosted an online show on ESPN.COM. He replaces DAMON AMENDOLARA, who took his show into overnights on the national CBS Sports Radio network.
"It’ll be great to have ADAM back at THE SPORTS HUB," CBS RADIO/BOSTON VP/Programming MIKE THOMAS said. "We had a lot of very good candidates apply for this job, but with his previous work here and the experience he gained after leaving the SPORTS HUB, ADAM was the clear choice. DAMON did a fantastic job coming into this market and hosting the evening show. I’m confident ADAM can pick up where D.A. left off and continue to grow the audience."
"I am thrilled to be back at THE SPORTS HUB, especially taking over for D.A. who is one of the best in the business and has built a powerhouse show," JONES said. "I look forward to working with everyone to continue the station’s incredible success and to bring a little of my own perspective and humor to weeknights."
