Hockey and hoops news

Two items of interest from Friday’s Boston papers. First, the Celtics signed a new radio deal. Their games will be broadcast on WRKO the sister station to sports powerhouse WEEI. Unfortunately for Boston College, the Celtics will take priority and preempt any conflicting Eagles basketball games. Hopefully, Entercom (the parent of both stations) will announce BC’s radio alternative soon.

The other interesting item was that Boston lost out on its bid for any of the upcoming NCAA Hockey finals. Hockey has not caught on in the Sun Belt, but the Sun Belt cities obviously were aggressive in winning the rights to host the championships. This is a sign that Boston and local area ADs cannot count on hosting the NCAAs every few years.
