98.5 The Sports Hub Adding Fox Sports Radio
Beasley Media Group Sports “98.5 The Sports Hub” WBZ-FM Boston is shedding one of the last vestiges of its former CBS Radio ownership as the station will drop its CBS Sports Radio network affiliation for Fox Sports Radio effective July 15.
WBZ-FM will add Fox Sports Radio’s Jason Smith Show with Mike Harmon for 12-2am and The Ben Maller Show from 2-6am as well as weekend programming from the network. Fox Sports Radio had most recently been heard on Entercom’s 93.7 WEEI-FM, which is now running SB Nation Radio until it can add CBS Sports Radio.
Beasley Media Group’s WBZ-FM/98.5 The Sports Hub, Boston’s Home for Sports, announced today the addition of several FOX Sports Radio (FSR) programs to its weekday and weekend roster.
Effective July 18, 98.5 The Sports Hub will welcome FSR’s The Jason Smith Show with Mike Harmon (12a.m. – 2 a.m. ET) and The Ben Maller Show (2 – 6 a.m. ET) to its Monday through Friday programming roster.
The station, which is home to the New England Patriots, Boston Celtics, Boston Bruins and New England Revolution, will also air FOX Sports Radio’s weekend overnight lineup.
“For the second time in our 10-year history, The Sports Hub will partner with Fox Sports Radio for late-night programming,” said Beasley Media Group National Spoken Word Brand Manager and WBZ-FM/98.5 Sports Hub Program Director, Mike Thomas. “We’re happy to have FSR’s compelling brand of sports talk back on The Sports Hub to keep our listeners informed and entertained.”
