The Boston Bruins and local radio outlet, 98.5 The Sports Hub announced today that they have reached an agreement on a multi-year extension of their current deal to keep Bruins games on the popular FM station.
The Bruins have been on the station for the past three seasons after moving from fellow CBS station, WBZ 1030, including the teams run to the Stanley Cup in 2010 and will be there for many more to come, though terms were not disclosed.
Both the Bruins and CBS (the parent company of 98.5) released statements praising their arrangement.
“Over the past three years, the Bruins have been very happy to be partners with ‘98.5 The Sports Hub’ as the station has launched and grown,” said Bruins President Cam Neely. “We feel that 98.5 has truly embraced the Bruins and our fans across all of their programming, and we are happy that The Sports Hub will be the home for Boston hockey fans for years to come.”
“The Bruins are one of the NHL’s treasured franchises and an Original Six team, and we are honored to continue broadcasting the games to fans throughout New England, “ said Mark Hannon, Senior Vice President and Market Manager for CBS RADIO Boston.
