WEEI Announces Red Sox Radio Broadcast Team For The Upcoming Season Which Includes Old Friend Sean McDonough
The flagship radio station of the Red Sox, WEEI, announced today their lineup of play-by-play commentators for the upcoming season—and it's quite the All-Star cast.
Returning for his 37th season in the booth will be Red Sox Hall of Famer Joe Castiglione, who also signed a multi-year extension with Entercom, WEEI's parent company.
Doing most of the rotating alongside Castiglione in the booth will be Sean McDonough, Mario Impenda, and Josh Lewin. ESPN's Chris Berman, Lou Merloni and Dale Arnold of WEEI, and NESN's Tom Caron are also expected to call a select number of games, while NESN play-by-play announcer Dave O'Brien will step in during nationally televised games.
Returning back to Boston is McDonough, who was a TV play-by-play announcer for Red Sox games from 1988-2004.
The newcomers Impenda and Lewin have nearly 60 combined years of broadcasting experience, as Impenda has been the the Detroit Tigers' TV play-by-play announcer for the last 17 years. For Lewin, he's called MLB, NFL, and NHL games over a career that began in 1995.
"We’re pleased to welcome Sean, Josh, and Mario to the Red Sox broadcast family and sharing another great season of Red Sox baseball with our fans on WEEI,” said Red Sox President and CEO Sam Kennedy.
