No Sox Deal For WBOS
May 5, 2006 at 8:23 AM (PT)
The BOSTON RED SOX will not be moving to GREATER MEDIA AAA WBOS/BOSTON after all. GREATER MEDIA announced that it had withdrawn its offer to broadcast SOX games and sell the team a portion of the station this morning.
In a press release, Pres./CEO PETER SMYTH said "this was a difficult decision, but at the end of the day, the deal didn't make economic sense for the company."
That leaves the SOX likely to stay with ENTERCOM's BOSTON cluster: the team presently airs on Sports WEEI-A, but a new deal could add Talk WRKO-A and/or Adult Hits WMKK to the picture.
