FOX Sports 980 to carry Boston Red Sox in 2012
FOX Sports 980 (WOFX) will be carrying the Boston Red Sox this upcoming season, the station announced this morning.
That means the station is ending its affiliation with the New York Mets.
The Red Sox will be on FOX Sports 980 for the next three seasons.
"We are excited about the addition of the Red Sox to our super roster of play-by-play programming on FOX Sports 980," Kristen Delaney, vice-president/regional market manager with Clear Channel Albany, said in a statement. "With the 100th anniversary of Fenway Park this season and the fresh start with Bobby Valentine as skipper, there’s no better time to bring the tradition of the Red Sox closer to fans in the Capital Region."
All spring training, regular season and post-season games are included in the agreement. The Red Sox open the regular season Thursday, April 5, against the Detroit Tigers. The home opener is Friday, April 13, against the Tampa Bay Rays.
