The announcement that BOSTON RED SOX television announcer DON ORSILLO will be dropped from NESN after this season has a domino effect for radio, as SOX radio play-by-play voice DAVE O'BRIEN will move to television to replace ORSILLO.
“This is absolutely a dream come true,” O'BRIEN said in a NESN press release. “It will be a privilege to call BOSTON RED SOX games on NESN for one of the most storied franchises in Major League Baseball. And I look forward with great anticipation to working alongside JERRY REMY.”
“We are excited to have DAVE, one of baseball’s preeminent announcers, join the NESN team next season,” said NESN President/CEO SEAN MCGRAIL.
ORSILLO has been calling the SOX on NESN since 2001, pairing with REMY. The announcement of his departure drew criticism from SOX fans across social media.
The SOX radio network is based at ENTERCOM Sports WEEI-F/BOSTON.
