WBCN 104.1FM is proud to announce that veteran sports reporter and talk show host Gary Tanguay has joined the pre- and post-game broadcast team on WBCN's Patriots Rock Radio Network. Tanguay, who has over 20 years of experience as a sports anchor in New England, has hosted halftime and post-game shows for the Boston Bruins and Boston Celtics. He also has experience as a talk show host, having hosted "Sports Saturday" and "Sports Sunday" on WBZ Radio. He currently co-hosts an evening program named "New England Sports Tonight" which airs weeknights on Fox Sports Net.
"We are very excited to add Gary as the pre- and post-game host of the WBCN/Patriots Rock Radio Network," said Mark Hannon, Senior Vice President and General Manager of WBCN. "The Patriots and WBCN, along with Gil Santos and Gino Cappelletti, have created a winning partnership for the past decade, and we look forward to continuing that legacy into the future," Hannon stressed.
Tanguay will be teamed with two former New England Patriots, offensive lineman Peter Brock and safety Tim Fox, who will continue to offer their unique insight and expert opinions. The broadcast team will provide Patriots fans with the most complete and comprehensive coverage, previewing and reviewing every Patriots game as they defend their Super Bowl title throughout the 2004 season.
"To say I'm looking forward to this season's show is an understatement," said Tanguay. "This is a life-long dream come true. I'm honored to join the WBCN broadcast team and can't wait for the Patriots' season to kick off."
Additionally, Howie Sylvester, a well-known radio producer with over 20 years of experience producing sports programs in Boston, will executive produce the game day coverage from the WBCN studios in Boston.
The WBCN Patriots Rock Radio Network includes 34 radio stations throughout New England. Game day coverage on WBCN 104.1 FM begins three hours before each game and concludes with a two-hour post-game show. For every Patriots home game, Patriots fans are invited to join the pre- and post-game broadcast team from the WBCN Broadcast Palace at Gillette Stadium.
