“Last year we had the unique opportunity to rotate different broadcast talents throughout the season, all of whom did an amazing job,” said Mark Hannon, Regional President and Market Manager, Entercom Boston. “This year we are thrilled to have a more permanent and consistent lineup with Will, Sean, and Lou who will join Red Sox Hall of Famer Joe Castiglione to deliver a dynamic broadcast experience for Red Sox fans.”
