While Beasley Media Group’s WBZ-FM carries play-by-play of New England Patriot games in Boston, Entercom’s WEEI-FM will retain broadcasting rights of Patriots Monday and Patriots Friday, after a new agreement was announced Wednesday. The weekly feature includes interviews with Patriot players on the WEEI sports radio network, Mondays and Fridays. The partnership between the Patriots and WEEI began in 1995 with Patriots Monday and expanded to include Patriots Friday during the 2008 season.
“As the voice of New England sports, we’re proud to extend our partnership with the New England Patriots, an elite organization that, like Entercom, is committed to bringing WEEI listeners and Patriots fans the compelling sports content they seek,” said Mark Hannon, Senior Vice President and Market Manager, Entercom Boston.
“Entercom is enthusiastic of and committed to its role as the nation’s premiere sports audio producer,” said Chris Oliviero, Executive Vice President of Programming, Entercom. “Continuing this winning combination of WEEI and the Patriots, one of Entercom’s over 40 professional team partnerships, is a strong sign of that commitment and passion to our listeners.”
