ENTERCOM Sports WEEI-A and Talk WRKO-A/BOSTON VP/Programming JASON WOLFE has announced that he is exiting the company. His replacement will be announced shortly, ENTERCOM said in a press release.
“JASON WOLFE has defined Sports Talk radio, not only in BOSTON, but around the country as well. There are very few people who have influenced an industry like JASON has,” said JEFF BROWN, VP/Market Manager at ENTERCOM BOSTON. “From his work with the JIMMY FUND and the RED SOX's historic championship run to WRKO's engagement with politics, JASON’s behind-the-scenes work has made an impact few people will ever understand. We thank JASON for all his hard work, dedication to ENTERCOM, and his commitment to the BOSTON community.”
“Being involved in the growth of WEEI has been a tremendous honor. WEEI went from a single radio station, to a regional sports network, added a world-class digital platform because the demand for our content is so strong; and today, is one of the biggest radio brands in any format, anywhere in the country. We were #1 for six straight years through the fall of 2008. We’ve won four MARCONI Awards and have given back so much to the community, helping to raise millions and millions of dollars for charity, including over $31 million for the JIMMY FUND. I couldn't be more proud to have played a role in all of the station's success,” said WOLFE. “I am thankful to everyone at ENTERCOM for all they’ve done to support me, and I wish them all the best in the future. It's now time for me to move on and begin the next chapter of my career."
