98.5 The Sports Hub: Bye Bye, Big Show

By BHL On August - 12 - 2009

With the advent of a new sports talk radio station in Boston, 98.5 The Sports Hub, long time WEEI listeners including Bleacher Report writer BHL will finally have another listening option for the afternoon commute.

Long tired of Glen Ordway's The Big Show, a yahoo and fat slob-centric shouting fest, Bleacher Report writer BHL is highly excited that 98.5 will feature Comcast SportsNet's Michael Felger in the weekday 2—6 p.m. time slot.

Felger, a favorite of some for his objective view of the Boston sports scene, and his lack of fear when making assertive and unique viewpoints, will be a refreshing treat for sports crazed Bostonians each afternoon.

On the whole, The Sports Hub appears to be the first strong competition for WEEI in recent memory.  The station has put together a respectable cast of sports radio personalities.  The morning show, with former WBCN jocks Toucher & Rich, would appear to be the only shortcoming on the new station.
