It will be a revolving door of announcers who will help Joe Castiglione call Boston Red Sox games on the radio this season.
Entercom, which owns WEEI, the Red Sox's flagship radio station, announced Thursday that it will have a number of people join Castiglione in the booth. The announcers coming in are Chris Berman, Sean McDonough, Josh Lewin, Mario Impemba, Lou Merloni, Dale Arnold, Tom Caron and Dave O’Brien.
The group will replace Tim Neverett, whose contract was not renewed after last season.
In addition, Entercom announced that it has signed Castiglione to a multiyear contract extension. Castiglione, a Red Sox Hall of Famer, begins his 37th season with the team.
“As the flagship radio home of the world champion Boston Red Sox, WEEI is proud to extend our relationship with Joe Castiglione and to welcome this elite group of broadcasters to join him in the booth,” Mark Hannon, regional president and market manager, Entercom Boston, said in a statement. “We are committed to providing listeners with premier and innovative coverage of the Sox and are looking forward to a great season.”
The Red Sox are heard in the Capital Region on FOX Sports 980 (WOFX-AM).
