GLENN GEFFNER is leaving the BOSTON RED SOX radio booth to join the FLORIDA MARLINS radio network, filling the slot alongside DAVE VAN HORNE left vacant when ROXY BERNSTEIN left the club. GEFFNER, who also hosted a weekly "RED SOX INSIDER" show for CBS Talk WTIC-A/HARTFORD, will host the MARLINS' pre- and post-game shows. The MARLINS will air on Sports WAXY-A (790 THE TICKET) this season, moving over from crosstown Sports WQAM-A.
"The FLORIDA MARLINS organization is thrilled to welcome GLENN and his family back to SOUTH FLORIDA," said the team's SVP of Communications and Broadcasting P.J. LOYELLO. "Although we received significant interest from many qualified candidates, GLENN's impressive baseball background, coupled with his desire to be an active member of our organization and community, made him the right choice. Fans across the FLORIDA MARLINS Radio Network will enjoy listening to longtime great DAVE VAN HORNE and GLENN for many years to come, starting with our first broadcast on MARCH 1st."
