The BOSTON HERALD is reporting that former RED SOX infielder LOU MERLONI will stay with ENTERCOM Sports WEEI-A/BOSTON as a contributor to GLENN ORDWAY's "THE BIG SHOW," spurning an offer from new crosstown CBS RADIO Sports WBZ-F (THE SPORTS HUB). MERLONI, also a commentator for COMCAST SPORTSNET, told the HERALD that he auditioned for a position on MICHAEL FELGER's show for WBZ-FM, which will debut on AUGUST 13th, but has signed a deal to stay with WEEI, where he will be a regular with ORDWAY's show.
"In the end, I just felt more comfortable staying at ENTERCOM with BIG O," MERLONI told the HERALD's JESSICA HESLAM. "It’s amazing -- I can do as much TV as I possibly can and people still come up to me and say, 'I love you on "THE BIG SHOW.'"
