BOSTON -- WEEI 93.7 FM announced Friday that J.T. "The Brick" will return to the station's lineup beginning Monday, May 6.

J.T. joined FOX Sports Radio as the afternoon host in June 2001, and began hosting the weekday evening program "FOX GameTime React" in 2002. In 2009, JT took over the 1-6 a.m. weekday timeslot and the program can currently be heard on approximately 260 affiliates across the nation, as well as iHeartRadio, the FOX Sports app and XM Channel 169. Before joining FOX Sports Radio, J.T. hosted the overnight show on the Sports Fan Radio Network for six years. Not content with doing just one show each day, J.T. then went on to host both his overnight show and a national afternoon show for SportsFan. He also spent six years as host of the Oakland Raiders pre- and post-game shows for KTCT-AM 1050 in San Francisco and the weekly Raider TV show, "Behind the Shield," on FOX Sports Bay Area.

"Even though he's a diehard Yankee fan, J.T.'s show has always been extremely popular here in Boston. The show was a winner for us when we aired it years ago, and I'm very pleased to be able to bring him back now," said Jason Wolfe, VP of Programming for Entercom Boston. "Adding JT's show provides a great balance to our overnight portfolio as we already air a very solid program in ESPN Radio's SportsCenter AllNight on 850 AM," Wolfe added.

"I'm thrilled to be back on WEEI and to bring my passion and energy back to Boston," said J.T. "We had tremendous success for over a decade and I'm confident that we will win again."
