WEEI/Boston parts company with Celtics


EntercomEntercom’s WRKO and WEEI stations in Boston, have been the radio home for the Boston Celtics since 2005, but they will no longer broadcast the storied NBA franchise’s games beginning next season.

“WEEI has had an incredible run with the Boston Celtics, from being a part of their 17th championship banner to the end of the Big 3 era,” said Entercom Boston vice president/market manager Jeff Brown in a statement. “Unfortunately we were unable to come to terms on a new contract moving forward. We thank the entire Celtics organization for our tremendous time together and wish them the best of luck in the future.”

It’s uncertain at this time which station will carry the Celtics games—possibly CBS Radio’s WBZ-FM.
