For the 2014 season, New England Patriots fans can listen to every play of every game on the “Safety Insurance, 98.5 The Sports Hub, Patriots Radio Network”. Each game, home and away, from preseason to post season is broadcast from the three-time Super Bowl Champions flagship station, WBZ-FM in Boston.
Back for his second season behind the microphone as the play by play voice of the Patriots is Bob Socci. Socci, who took over last season after the legendary Gil Santos retired, called Navy Football for 16 years.
In addition to Navy Football, Socci (pronounced so-she) has spent the first half of the 2013 as the radio voice of the Pawtucket Red Sox and is the lead announcer for CBS Sports Networks coverage of Patriot League basketball games.
Joining Socci is Patriots color analyst Scott Zolak who after one season as the sideline reporter came into the booth for the 2012 season after long time analyst Gino Cappelletti retired. Zolak was a former 4th round draft choice of the Patriots as a quarterback out of the University of Maryland in 1991. He was with the Patriots from 1991-98 and spent 1999 with the Miami Dolphins.
To get you ready for the game, make sure you tune in along the Patriots Radio Network three hours prior to game time for Patriots Preview and stay for three hours after the game with Patriots Postgame. Veteran TV and radio personality Gary Tanguay hosts both shows and is joined by former University of Rhode Island lineman Andy Gresh for analysis both before and after the game.
Patriots Preview is an information packed prelude to kickoff, and has the only game-day interviews with head coach Bill Belichick and Patriots president Jonathan Kraft.
Patriots Postgame wraps up the game with a breakdown of the game, live press conferences with the players who made a difference and reaction from you, the fans.
NFL game feeds are also available with a subscription to Sirius Satellite Radio and you can also receive NFL games on XM Satellite Radio with a “XM Premier Package” subscription added to your regular XM account.
