KEVIN will bring a fresh perspective to the entire WEEI team and our complete package of digital sports assets.”
“I am honored and excited to join the WEEI team. WEEI is one of the most recognizable and powerful sports radio brands in the country,” GRAHAM said. “With great resources, amazing talent, and one of the best digital brands in sports, the sky is the limit. I can’t wait to get started, especially with the RED SOX in the midst of such a great season.”
