The Boston Celtics announced a multi-year broadcast extension with Beasley Media Group’s 98.5 The Sports Hub today during the Zolak and Bertrand Show. The station has been the official flagship Station of the Boston Celtics Radio Network since 2013.
Sean Grande and Cedric Maxwell will continue to be the voices of the team radio broadcast, building off of more than two decades of their partnership. In addition to the games, 98.5 The Sports Hub will also air Celtics related programming throughout the season, including a weekly call-in from Celtics Head Coach Joe Mazzulla on The Zolak & Bertrand Show each Wednesday during the season.
The Celtics Show with Jim Murray and Chris Gasper can be heard Saturdays at 12:00 p.m. all season. Cerrone Battle will join Joe Murray after many of the weeknight broadcasts for extended postgame coverage. All Celtics interviews and The Celtics Show will be available anytime, on-demand on 985thesportshub.com and The Sports Hub app. Select games during the 2023-24 season will air on ROCK 92.9
