PROVIDENCE COLLEGE basketball will move from CITADEL Sports WSKO-A-F/PROVIDENCE to crosstown ENTERCOM Sports WEEI-F/WESTERLY-PROVIDENCE under a deal between the station and rights holder NELLIGAN SPORTS MARKETING. FRIARS basketball will air on the FM simulcast partner of WEEI-A/BOSTON through the 2011-12 season, with JOHN ROOKE and JOE HASSETT back this season for their 19th year as a on-air team covering the FRIARS.
WEEI-F will also carry 30 game pre- and post-game shows and 10 editions of the TIM WELSH coach's show. In the event of conflict with BOSTON CELTICS basketball, the FRIARS will take precedence on 103.7 FM and the CELTICS will air on 850 AM.
