NESN PROGRAMMING UPDATE:
MAY 29 – June 7

NESN’s upcoming week of programming initiatives will include daily iconic Boston Red Sox and Boston Bruins games and daily programming of “NESN After Hours,” “Dining Playbook” and “Charlie Moore Outdoors.”

“Chara at 1000, presented by buyatoyota.com” will debut at 7 p.m. ET on Sunday with an encore at 8 p.m. The show honors Zdeno Chara’s milestone 1,000 games with the Bruins and highlights interviews with players, coaches and executives across the league. To watch the trailer and exclusive extras from the show, visit NESN.com/Chara1000 and follow @NESN on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook.

NESN on Saturday airs the second “Fans’ Choice” game featuring Matt from Gloucester’s favorite Red Sox game from April 20, 2003. Matt’s dad surprised him with tickets on Easter morning and Nomar Garciaparra hit a walk off home run to cap off the special day – a day that Matt remembers fondly when he thinks of his father who passed away a decade ago. Fans can still enter their favorite game for a chance to be featured at NESN.com/FansChoice.
