Grandy one of the most knowledgeable commentators out there. Would be a huge loss. Grandy and Max were an interesting Combo. Hope Grandy is able to move up to TV.

Can't imagine this is a good sign for the C's.

Or is it?

I suppose it could be in the long run if they end up on the Sports Hub, as they are getting stronger ratings.

It just looks to me like the price for broadcasting on WEEI went up as a result of the team not looking as strong this year.

I don't think they will end up on the Sports Hub since they already have the Bruins and Patriots.  C's and B's would have a lot of conflicts in their schedules.

Slide one over to 1030-AM (most likely, Celtics) if there is a conflict.

I just hope Grande and Max are carried over to the Celtics new radio home.

They will be.  Here is part of the article that Sed posted.

Quote
No matter where on the dial the Celtics land, expect to hear the same broadcast team. Play-by-play voice Sean Grande and analyst Cedric Maxwell, a popular tandem who have been paired since the 2001-02 season, are hired by the team rather than the station that broadcasts the games.
