Beasley Media Signs Long-Running Boston Marathon Deal


Beasley Media Group Boston has entered into a multi-year partnership with the Boston Athletic Association to cover the Boston Marathon. The collaboration will see Beasley’s five stations in the cluster provide extensive marketing and support for the world’s oldest marathon.

Stations involved include 98.5 The Sports Hub (WBZ), Country 102.5 (WKLB), WROR 105.7, Hot 96.9 (WBQT), and Rock 92.9 (WBOS).

The event will be marked by Country 102.5’s Morning Show Host and Boston native Ayla Brown performing The National Anthem, while Country 102.5 and 98.5 The Sports Hub will broadcast live from the starting line in Hopkinton. Bob Socci, the voice of The 98.5 Patriots Radio Network, will provide live updates along the 26.2-mile course.
