Entercom and ESPN Team up in Boston
As the fight for sports affiliates heats up, ESPN can put a big one under its belt. Entercom's WEEI will be partnering with ESPN Radio in Boston. Here's how the arrangement will work. WEEI will split its AM/FM simulcast and begin broadcasting ESPN Radio on 850 AM. “ESPN on WEEI” will air ESPN’s entire national lineup, including the entire upcoming Major League Baseball postseason schedule, the NBA, and college football and college basketball. ESPN Radio on 850 AM will debut with Mike Greenberg and Mike Golic, of “Mike and Mike in the Morning,” broadcasting live from Foxboro’s Gillette Stadium beginning at 6 a.m. ET on October 5.
ESPN Senior Vice President, Production Business Divisions Traug Keller said, “We’re pleased to team with Boston’s preeminent sports radio outlet and one of the nation’s best radio broadcasting companies in Entercom to bring the number one national network into New England. This move coupled with the existing presence of ESPNBoston.com provides Boston’s passionate fans the best of ESPN’s national and local coverage and analysis.”
When the Dial Global/NBC Sports Network launches it will be heard on WWZN-AM.
