Before being named Sports Anchor for WBZ NewsRadio’s morning newscasts, Kaufman served as a radio talk show host, anchor, and sports reporter at three CBS-owned properties: WBZ-AM NewsRadio 1030, 98.5 The Sports Hub (WBZ-FM), and CBS Sports Radio. Previously, Kaufman worked for two seasons as the lead play-by-play voice of the Boston College men’s hockey team and five years with the Providence Bruins, the top affiliate of the Boston Bruins. He is a graduate of Syracuse University.
WBZ NewsRadio 1030 is owned and operated by CBS RADIO, one of the largest major-market radio operators in the United States. A division of CBS Corporation, CBS RADIO operates 117 radio stations, the majority of which are in the nation’s top 50 markets.

The Celtics are off to the second round of the playoffs for the first time since 2012 and the first in three tries under coach Brad Stevens.

The last four nights at the TD Garden were gut-punch after gut-punch for Boston sports fans.
The Celtics and Bulls will tip-off their first-round series at the Garden Easter Sunday, which gave “Celtics @ 7” host Adam Kaufman plenty of time Saturday on 98.5 The Sports Hub to preview the set with a special extended show.
Nothing will be easy this postseason, but the Celtics are good enough to make a significant run.
The Celtics are just a game back of the top-seed in the East with three games to play in the regular season, starting Saturday night in Charlotte.
This is how it’s supposed to be, isn’t it?
Boston hasn’t played its best basketball lately, but “Celtics @ 7” host Adam Kaufman feels that may actually be a good thing nearing the playoffs.

The Celtics were blown out by Denver Friday night, 119-99, one game after arguably the win of the year in Golden State. That capped a 2-3 road trip that, according to “Celtics @ 7” host Adam Kaufman, was disappointing and underwhelming.
