Boston Celtics Broadcasts Moving to WEEI
 
Celtics Games to make switch from WRKO beginning with the 2007-2008 season
 
BOSTON (March 28, 2007) – The Boston Celtics and Entercom Boston announced today that they will move the broadcasts of Celtics games from Boston’s Talk Station, AM 680 WRKO to Sportsradio 850 WEEI beginning with the 2007-2008 season through the term of the current agreement. For the past two seasons Celtics games have been broadcast on WRKO. 
 
“While we have enjoyed a fantastic partnership with WRKO, we couldn’t be more pleased about moving our broadcasts to WEEI,” Rich Gotham said Celtics Chief Operating Officer. “WEEI is the  number one sports talk station in the country and provides an ideal flagship for both our game broadcasts and Celtics talk for our loyal fans.”
 
Both Sean Grande and Cedric Maxwell are expected to remain as the play-by-play team.  Executive Director of Basketball Operations Danny Ainge and Head Coach Doc Rivers will continue to make their weekly appearances on WEEI during the season. In addition, the Celtics and Entercom will continue to promote the team’s games across Entercom Boston’s network of stations including WRKO and WAAF and the WEEI New England Network made up of WEEI FM 103.7 in Providence, WVEI 1440 AM in Worcester, and WVEI FM 105.5 FM in Springfield will serve as regional affiliates of the broadcasts.  
 
"I'm very excited about the return of the Celtics to WEEI,” Jason Wolfe said, Entercom Boston Vice President of AM Programming.  “We have developed an outstanding partnership with the team over the last two years on WRKO and I'm looking forward to continuing that great work next year and in the years to come."
 
“The Celtics are a world class organization and I am thrilled we will be broadcasting their games on WEEI,” Julie Kahn said, Entercom Vice President and Market Manager.  “Entercom and the Celtics have achieved tremendous mutual success with our relationship the last few years and I‘m anxiously anticipating the future.”
