The New England Sports Network, or NESN [NESS-en], is a regional cable television network that covers the six New England states. It is broadcast throughout New England (except Fairfield County and most of New Haven and Litchfield counties in Connecticut). In the New England area, DirecTV carries it on channel 623, with channel 623 for HD). Comcast, in the city of Boston, has NESN on channel 13, but NESN HD is still on channel 851. The Boston Red Sox are a co-founder and the majority owner (80%) of NESN, with the Boston Bruins owning the remaining 20%. NESN is thus technically a unit of the New York Times Company's Boston Globe division, which is part of the Red Sox ownership group. Although it mainly broadcasts non-national Boston Red Sox and Boston Bruins games, NESN also features regional college sports including college hockey games on Friday nights, various fishing and hunting shows, and sports talk shows featuring the sports columnists of the Globe, as that paper is also owned by the New York Times. NESN was, for a time, the New England carrier for Fox Sports Net (before Sports Channel New England joined Fox Sports Net), after that, until early 2006, NESN carried ESPNEWS in the afternoon and overnight hours. NESN has carried regional Atlantic Coast Conference games since Boston College joined the conference. Image File history File links Nesnlogo. ...

Red Sox coverage

Boston Red Sox baseball coverage began in 1984 on the New England Sports Network, airing mostly road games on the newly-formed pay cable channel. Former Sox second baseman Mike Andrews served as the play-by-play announcer and Kent Derdivanis provided color commentary. NESN periodically sent guest color commentators to the booth, with the likes of Rico Petrocelli, Bill Monbouquette, and Dick Radatz. The in-studio host was a young man just out of Syracuse University named Sean McDonough. Fast-forwarding 23 years ahead, NESN now carries full coverage (minus some nationally broadcast games on Fox and ESPN) of Red Sox games as well as in-depth pre- and post-game shows. Unlike previous seasons where it split coverage with over-the-air stations, it now broadcasts all games not on national television, using the slogan "One Nation, One Network". In 2006, it became the first network to broadcast all its Major League Baseball team's games in High Definition, available to cable providers throughout New England, DirecTV, AT&T U-Verse (in CT) and Verizon FIOS (in MA). Dish Network does not provide NESN in HD. Michael Jay Andrews (born July 9, 1943 in Los Angeles, California) is a former second baseman in Major League Baseball who played for the Boston Red Sox (1966-70), Chicago White Sox (1971-73) and Oakland Athletics (1973). ...

Pre-game

One hour before each Red Sox game, Tom Caron hosts the Boston Globe Pre-Game Report, where Caron and others, including Jim Rice, Dave McCarty, and Hall of Famer Dennis Eckersley — as well as team president Larry Lucchino on a weekly basis — provide highlights from the previous game, analysis on the upcoming team, player profiles, news from around the league, and their "keys to the game." Former Oakland Athletics manager Ken Macha was named a rotating analyst on this program in April 2007. In 2006, NESN introduced a segment before the Pre-Game Report called "Friday Night Fenway", which, on Red Sox Friday home games, showcases pre-game activities from inside Fenway Park. They have also included a Monday segment, "Monster Monday", which airs every game day Monday, regardless of whether or not the game is at Fenway Park. Tom Caron, better known as TC on air, is a sportscaster for NESN, who has been with the station since 1995 when he first hosted the sports magazine Front Row. ...

Post-game

After the game has finished, NESN goes back to the studio, where Tom Caron and one or more of the studio analysts from the pre-game show deliver a wrap-up of the night's game. They present highlights and statistics from the completed game and often have a member of the Red Sox team on hand to get their take on the game. This hour of coverage also focuses on the upcoming game as well as news from the league. The Post Game is usually not covered if the Red Sox are on the west coast, in those instances Sportsdesk immediately follows the game.

Boston Bruins coverage

Bruins coverage began in 1984 with Fred Cusick, Dave Shea and Derek Sanderson at the microphone. They mostly covered home games on NESN and road games on WSBK. Bruins coverage has grown somewhat since NESN took over exclusive rights (previously shared with WSBK). It now includes extensive pre- and post-game shows, with the focus similar to the Red Sox's shows, plus a weekly magazine show and a highlights show during the season. Dale Arnold and Jack Edwards split the play-by-play duties during games, as Edwards also calls and hosts NHL games for Versus while Arnold has hosted sports-talk programs in Boston for many years. Andy Brickley serves as the color analyst. Most of NESN's Boston Bruins' games during the 2005-2006 season were broadcast in High-Definition; all Bruins games in 2006-2007 and beyond are in HD.
