Via the Globe: 

Entercom Communications, whose WRKO and WEEI stations in the Boston markets have been the radio home for the Boston Celtics since 2005, will no longer broadcast the storied NBA franchise’s games beginning next season. “WEEI has had an incredible run with the Boston Celtics, from being a part of their 17th championship banner to the end of the Big 3 era,” said Entercom Boston vice president/market manager Jeff Brown in a statement.

Does this mean 98.5 the Sports Hub gets a crack at carrying Celtics games?  They’re already the home of the Bruins, and a lot of games during the season fall on the same day… so I’m not sure that’d work. So who else gets a shot at it?  And what happens to Grande and Max?
