Bruins Reach Multi-Year Agreement on Terms to Extend Contract with CBS RADIO Boston

BOSTON, MA – The Boston Bruins announced today, July 23, that they have reached a multi-year agreement on terms to extend their contract with CBS RADIO Boston, which has been the radio home of the Bruins since the 1995-96 NHL season. All Bruins games will continue to be broadcast on "98.5 The Sports Hub" (WBZ-FM) along with thirty-minute pre- and post-game shows. "98.5 The Sports Hub" debuted on Thursday, August 13, 2009 as the only FM station of its kind in the Boston area, airing B's games since the 2009-10 season. The Bruins and CBS RADIO Boston also announced that "98.5 The Sports Hub" will extend "The Hockey Show" to a two-hour weekly broadcast.

"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.

Prior to the 2011-12 Bruins season, "98.5 The Sports Hub" received the prestigious Marconi Award as the best sports talk station in the country and posted record ratings following Boston's 2011 run to the Stanley Cup.

"98.5 The Sports Hub" features a wide assortment of sports talk and play-by-play programming and showcase personalities, including Toucher and Rich in morning drive, midday with Gresh and Zolak, Felger and Mazz in afternoon drive and The D.A. Show at night. In addition to broadcasting B's games, WBZ-FM has been the flagship station of the New England Patriots of the NFL beginning with their 2009 season and of the New England Revolution beginning in 2010.

Adding to the broadcast distribution of the station, "98.5 The Sports Hub" is also an online destination and interactive experience.
