98.5 The Sports Hub announced today that Judd Sirott has been named the new radio play-by-play voice of the Boston Bruins. The Sports Hub, which serves as the official flagship station of the Bruins, will pair Sirott and analyst Bob Beers effective immediately.
“We are very excited to have someone with the exceptional reputation and experience that Judd has, join our team at The Sports Hub and call the Boston Bruins games on the radio,” said Mike Thomas, Vice President of Programming, CBS Radio Boston & Vice President, Sports Programming, CBS Radio.
“I didn’t just hit the lottery, I hit the Powerball,” said Sirott. “An Original Six team; a spectacular hockey market; one of the world’s greatest cities; a terrific partner to work with in Bob Beers; and a fabulous station to be a part of. I am incredibly fortunate, privileged and humbled to be the radio voice of the Boston Bruins on 98.5 The Sports Hub. As the saying goes, ‘Success has a thousand fathers’, I’ve probably had double that. There are so many people to thank, in particular, Mike Thomas, Mark Hannon, Rick Radzik and Howie Sylvester with CBS Radio Boston, as well as The Jacobs Family; Cam Neely; and Matt Chmura with the Bruins. I’d also like to thank the Chicago Blackhawks and WGN where I spent 10 terrific years. My family and I can’t wait to move to Boston.”
Since 2008, Sirott has worked as a host and fill in play-by-play announcer for the Chicago Blackhawks on WGN AM in Chicago. He has called NHL games nationally for HDNet (now AXS TV) and the NHL Network, and served as play-by-play voice for the Chicago Wolves of the American Hockey League for twelve seasons. In addition, Sirott spent six years with the Chicago Cubs broadcast team as a host and play-by-play announcer while with WGN.
