Sean McGrail, CEO and president of NESN, says, “We’re excited to expand our relationship with Sullivan Tire, a partnership that dates back to 1984 when they became the network’s first sponsor. For 65 years Sullivan Tire has been the standard of quality service throughout New England. We look forward to extending that commitment to our viewers that rely on NESN to get their daily sports news.”
