New England native Nick Cattles is returning home. The afternoon host on ESPN Radio 94.1 in Virginia Beach announced today that he’s accepted an opportunity to join 98.5 The Sports Hub. He’ll host his final show in Virginia Beach on January 9th.
Cattles began his radio career in Boston working for the Hub from 2009-2012. He’d been hosting afternoons in Virginia Beach for the past four and a half years. Upon his return, Cattles will join Adam Jones on the evening program, filling the void left behind by Rich Keefe who recently left the station to join WEEI’s afternoon show.
In a Facebook post, Cattles said that the decision was difficult because he grew up as a man, host, husband, and local business owner in Virginia Beach, but the opportunity to return home and talk about the teams he loves in a top 10 market, close to his friends and family, was something he couldn’t pass up.
Cattles did add that he plans to remain tied to the Virginia Beach area through his local ownership of the Tailgate Sports Bar, which he’ll remain invested in with a few other business partners.
