Radzik is the second individual to serve as program director in the station’s decade-long history. He was instrumental in the official launch of 98.5 The Sports Hub and has served as the Assistant Program Director since the station signed on back in August 2009.
Previously, Radzik spent 15 years as a Producer at WBZ-AM, overseeing the Boston Bruins broadcasts. The sports radio veteran began his career at the former WEEI News Radio, producing the Bruins and Boston Celtics broadcasts, as well as various talk shows.
“Rick is a highly respected member of The Sports Hub team,” said Beasley Media Group Vice President and Market Manager Mary Menna. “We are looking forward to many more decades of wins under his leadership!”
“Rick has been a key member of the Sports Hub programming team since the station’s inception,” said Cadillac Jack, Director of Programming at Beasley Media Group’s Boston based radio cluster. “The knowledge he has amassed over the past decade, coupled with his relationships and passion for continuing our winning history make him uniquely qualified to lead the Sports Hub into the 2020’s and beyond!”
Radzik replaces veteran sports programmer, Mike Thomas, who is leaving the station to become Market Manager at ESPN 1000 in Chicago. Thomas will remain on as a consultant for 98.5 The Sports Hub.
