NBC Sports Boston is the club’s regional television home, broadcasting all non-nationally televised matched in high definition. Additionally, NBC Sports Boston’s coverage includes postgame highlights, analysis, and interviews on Revolution Postgame Live and features a bi-weekly show, “State of the Revs,” which is hosted by Ethan Zohn for the 2017 season.

The game-day producers are Jim Daddona and Wayne Edwards, while Shawn Jensen is the television package’s director.
The Revolution is also committed to providing the best live game radio coverage, which is why the club has partnered with 98.5 The Sports Hub, the primary carrier for Revs radio, for a fifth consecutive season.
All 34 Revolution regular season games will again be broadcast on radio and on the web. All matches are also followed by a postgame show hosted by Rob “Hardy” Poole and Revolution club legend Shalrie Joseph. Kevin Collins produces all Revolution radio content.

Brad Feldman, the veteran play-by-play announcer who has called more than 500 Revolution matches, returns for his 17th season in the booth. The 2017 season marks his 13th as the play-by-play announcer for the club’s broadcasts, both on television and radio. He is also the supervising producer for all Revolution telecasts, heading content, operations, and production.
Feldman joined the Revs organization in 2001 as a TV and radio announcer. He broadcast all five of the Revs' MLS Cup appearances and was an announcer for the club's 2007 U.S. Open Cup and SuperLiga 2008 championship-winning matches. Feldman’s resume includes play-by-play commentary for top European competitions on ESPN International and Setanta Sports and announcing MLS, USL, and college matches on FOX Soccer. He began his MLS broadcasting career as a sideline reporter for the Kansas City Wizards telecasts in 1999.
Paul Mariner, the former England international striker and assistant coach of the Revolution, joins Feldman in the booth for his fourth season as the team’s lead color analyst. Mariner is a regular analyst and contributor on ESPN FC. He also provides analysis on various international soccer matches on ESPN. Mariner was an assistant coach with the Revolution from 2004-09 before accepting the head coach position – and later manager position – at Plymouth Argyle FC in England. He returned to North America in 2011 to join Toronto FC as the club’s director of player development and later assumed the head coaching position for the second half of the 2012 season.
Mariner is remembered by world soccer fans as one of the top center forwards in English football in the late 1970s and early 1980s. He earned 35 international caps playing for his country, and led the England attack in the 1982 FIFA World Cup. After starting his professional club career with Plymouth Argyle, Mariner scored 97 goals in eight seasons for Ipswich Town from 1976-84, before playing three seasons with Arsenal FC in London and finishing his English Leagues career with Portsmouth. He helped Ipswich Town win the 1978 FA Cup and 1981 UEFA Cup.
