With the retirement of longtime morning sports anchor GIL SANTOS, CBS RADIO News-Talk WBZ-A/BOSTON has upped WALT PERKINS to the morning sports anchor position. PERKINS joined WBZ in 2001 for weekend sports anchoring duties.
"First, I am extremely honored to be following a sports legend in GIL," PERKINS told WBZTV.COM. "He was one-of-a-kind and cannot be replaced. I pledge to do my best to keep up the high standard he set in this job for the past 38 years. Second, I look forward to working with the top-notch crew that is in place -- on-air and off -- bringing NEW ENGLAND the latest sports news and information."
