ENTERCOM Sports WEEI-F/BOSTON midday "MFB" co-host TIM BENZ is exiting to return to PITTSBURGH in early AUGUST to a new job to be announced shortly. BENZ told listeners that THURSDAY's show will be his final WEEI show. BENZ, who has been hosting with former RED SOX player LOU MERLONI and former PATRIOT CHRISTIAN FAURIA, came to BOSTON in 2014 from iHEARTMEDIA's PITTSBURGH cluster, where he served as morning host at Alternative WXDX (105.9 THE X) and then as Sports Director for all six stations and host at Sports WBGG-A (970 ESPN).
BENZ, whose father Dr. EDWARD BENZ JR. is the Pres./CEO of BOSTON's DANA FARBER CANCER INSTITUTE, tweeted, "I want to thank the managers at WEEI for allowing this move after granting me a tremendous opportunity when they hired me as host of MFB. However, I underestimated the difficulties that go along with working a job in one city while trying to maintain a home & marriage in another. (BOSTON) was every bit the city I wanted 2 experience.But it is best for me personally & professionally 2 be back home full-time in (PITTSBURGH) w/ my wife."
