Ever since the Bruins dedicated the TD Garden television booth to Fred Cusick, I’ve been waiting for them to do the same with the radio booth and Bob Wilson.
Today they announced that they’re finally going to get around to it.
The morning of March 26, prior to the Bruins’ game with the New York Rangers, the Bruins will dedicate the radio booth in Wilson’s honor. Wilson served as the voice of the Bruins on radio for 25 years before retiring in 1995. In 1987, Wilson received the Foster Hewitt Memorial Award, which was presented by Hockey Hall of Fame and chosen by the NHL Broadcasters Association. His voice is as tied to Bruins history as Cusick’s.
In addition to the dedication of the booth, a silver microphone will be added to the Garden facade alongside the one placed there for Cusick. Wilson will drop the ceremonial first puck that day and then be a guest commentator on the radio broadcast with Dave Goucher and Bob Beers.
Cusick passed away prior to his dedication. It looks like Wilson will make it to his, which is a great feat and a smart move by the Bruins.
