Since radio’s earliest days, WBZ has been at the forefront in providing coverage of local sports.  In 1924 the NHL expanded to include the Boston Bruins as the first non-Canadian team. WBZ arranged to cover the games, with sportswriter Frank Ryan on the play-by-play. In April 1925, WBZ was the first local station to broadcast a Boston Braves baseball game,  from Braves Field. Fans were excited to hear interviews with some of the players.  In mid-April 1931, WBZ was there for the very first broadcast of the Boston Marathon.  In more recent times, WBZ was one of the first to present a live call-in sports show, when Guy Mainella debuted “Calling All Sports” in July 1969.
