CBS Radio and 98.5 The Sports Hub announced today that afternoon drive hosts Michael Felger and Tony Massarotti will continue their highly rated brand of Boston sports fan antagonism for the foreseeable future, having agreed to multi-year contract extensions.
The timing of the official announcement is somewhat curious — Felger’s contract has been done for several months, while Massarotti re-upped recently.
Massarotti will continue to host the “The Baseball Reporters Show” from 6-7 p.m. during baseball season. He is no longer writing for Boston.com and is now contributing two columns per week to cbsbostonsports.com.
The Felger and Massarotti program, which launched when the station debuted in August 2009, has been consistently the No. 1 rated program in its day part. In the most recent three-month ratings period, the program was first for the 10th straight ratings period among men 25-54 with a 13.6 share.
