Originally written October 01, 2013 on Celtics Green ...a boston celtics blog.:
We were all prepared for a much different Celtics team this season. The Celtics long time Captain is gone. KG is gone. There are many new faces on the team. The coaching staff is all new. There's a lot to get used to.  There is also a new radio affiliate for the team.  And now, it seems that we will be getting used to more newness when it comes to the television broadcasts of the games.  . CSNNE yesterday announced that they will be making several changes to the team that will be broadcasting the Celtics games. First and foremost, let's talk about what won't be changing. Tommy Heinsohn and Mike Gorman will be back for their 33d year together calling Celtics games. Tommy will do the color on all Celtics' home games, but as in the past few years, he won't travel on the long road trips. For those games, Tommy will join the studio group and the color analyst role will rotate on the road among Dave Cowens, Cedric Maxwell, Danny Ainge and Chris Herren among others. I was very sad to see that Greg Dickerson, the Celtics' sideline reporter since 2005, will no longer be on the sidelines this season. He will continue to contribute to CSNNE and NECN Celtics programming, however. Greg has dealt with epilepsy and Tourette's syndrome over the years and a different role may be less stressful for him. Celtics fans will miss him. He truly loves the team and it shows. Taking his place as sideline reporter will be Abby Chin, who came to Boston from Portland, Oregon last December and served as an anchor and reporter. Gary Tanguay and Donny Marshall will no longer be doing the studio broadcasts for the pre and post game shows. Kyle Draper will replace Tanguay as the host of the pre and post game Celtics coverage. Studio analysts who will join Draper at times include Dave Cowens, former Providence coach, Tim Welsh, and Chris Mannix of Sports Illustrated. [Discuss on CG Forums!]
