The New England Patriots and 98.5 The Sports Hub Announce Multi-Year Broadcast Extension

New England Patriots and Beasley Media Group announce a multi-year broadcast extension with Beasley Media Group’s WBZ-FM/98.5 The Sports Hub today. The station has been the official flagship station of the New England Patriots since its inception in 2009.

The New England Patriots games will continue to be broadcast through the 2033 season on Boston’s #1 sports station, and can also be heard in most of New England on 98.5 The Sports Hub, or online at or on any mobile device by accessing The Sports Hub app.

“Patriots fans throughout New England have come to rely on the sound quality, reach and overall coverage that 98.5 The Sports Hub has delivered since they launched 15 years ago,” said Murray Kohl, Vice President of Corporate Sponsorship Sales. “Bob Socci and Scott Zolak are perfectly paired to deliver all the action to Patriots fans throughout the region. We are happy to extend this partnership for another 10 years and hope it will continue for decades to come.”

“The Patriots are a religion in New England,” said Beasley Media Group Boston Vice President and Market Manager, Mary Menna. “We are honored to continue broadcasting the games to our fans for at least the next decade!  The Kraft family, the Patriots staff and the entire team are such amazing partners.”

“The Patriots have been a cornerstone of our programming since we launched the Sports Hub,” said station Program Director, Rick Radzik. “As the team enters this new era, I’m thrilled that 98.5 The Sports Hub will be the home of the game broadcasts for the next decade, while also continuing to provide an outlet for Pats fans to talk football year-round.”

Game Day Patriots action will start three hours before each kickoff with “Patriots Preview.” Jim Murray will once again serve as the main pregame host, with Marc Bertrand also hosting some select games. Chris Gasper, Boston Globe columnist and co-host of the popular “Gasper & Murray Show,” will return for his 10th season as the pregame co-host.

Patriots Postgame will air for three hours after every game broadcast.
