The BOSTON CELTICS, as expected, are moving to CBS RADIO Sports WBZ-F (98.5 THE SPORTS HUB)/BOSTON under a new multi-year deal. The CELTICS previously aired on crosstown ENTERCOM Sports WEEI-F.
“We are excited to launch a new era of CELTICS basketball with CBS RADIO Boston, extending our audience reach with CELTICS fans throughout NEW ENGLAND and providing an enhanced promotional platform for the CELTICS, our team sponsors, and advertisers,” CELTICS Team President RICH GOTHAM said. “In addition to enjoying the NBA’s best play by play with (SEAN) GRANDE and MAX (CEDRIC MAXWELL), CELTICS fans will also have the opportunity to hear directly from CELTICS executives, players, and coaches through interviews and features throughout the season.”
“98.5 THE SPORTS HUB is thrilled to add BOSTON CELTICS radio broadcasts to our line-up,” said CBS RADIO BOSTON SVP and Market Manager MARK HANNON. “The CELTICS are a winning, world-class organization and the perfect fit for 98.5 THE SPORTS HUB. I look forward to growing the success of both organizations through this partnership.”
When conflicts arise with BRUINS broadcasts on the station, the CELTICS will air on sister Classic Rock WZLX.
