Red Sox and Audacy, the parent company of WEEI, announced Wednesday that it has extended its broadcast rights deal.

Details were not immediately available on the terms of the extension, but the current deal would have expired in 2023, with the team retaining the option of ’24’.

The extension will keep the Red Sox regular season, post-season and spring games on WEEI Sports Radio, which has been their main station since 1995.

“Few things exemplify the city of Boston better than the Red Sox, and we’re thrilled to expand our partnership with the team,” Tim Clark, Senior Vice President and Market Director, Audacy Boston, said in a statement. “The team has provided some of the most memorable moments in baseball over the past two decades, and we’re proud to continue to give our fans a front row seat to everything that surrounds the team.”

Red Sox President and CEO Sam Kennedy added: “For the past 26 years, WEEI has been alongside us to deliver some of the most memorable moments in Red Sox history on radio. From epic victories to devastating losses, there’s been a consistency of Through the authoritative and familiar voice of Joe Castiglione and the entire WEEI broadcast team. We are excited to extend this enduring relationship into a new era of baseball for the Red Sox.”

As part of the deal, WEEI will continue to air a weekly front office report as part of its morning campaign, “The Greg Hill Show,” which includes rotating interviews with Kennedy, baseball chief Chaim Bloom, and general manager Brian O’ Halloran. The afternoon driving show “Merloni and Fauria” will continue its weekly classes with Principal Alex Cora.
