CBS RADIO Sports WBZ-F (98.5 THE SPORTS HUB)/BOSTON has named afternoon sports anchor MARC BERTRAND as SCOTT ZOLAK's new host for 10a-2p (ET), starting TUESDAY (2/17). BERTRAND, who formerly co-hosted a weekend show with THE BOSTON GLOBE's CHRISTOPHER GASPER and will also host the station's PATRIOTS pre- and post-game shows, replaces ANDY GRESH on the show; GRESH remains on board at the station "in a variety of roles," the station said.
CBS RADIO BOSTON VP, Programming and CBS RADIO VP, Sports Programming MIKE THOMAS said, “MARC’s unique opinion on the topics of the day, his local background, and his sense of humor will bring a new, entertaining twist to the midday show. Partnered with SCOTT’s never-ending energy level and interesting former pro athlete take, the duo will make for a solid combination.”
BERTRAND said, "I'm beyond thrilled to be moving to middays to work with SCOTT ZOLAK. Being able to say I've been at THE SPORTS HUB since day one is an incredibly proud moment for me. As someone who was born and raised in BOSTON, I know it is the best sports town in AMERICA with the very best fans. The loyalty of our listeners has driven the success of our station, and I can't wait to interact with them on a daily basis."
