WEEI Announces “Red Sox Wednesdays” & New Weeknight Programming Lineup

July 11, 2011 - 1:12 pm

Boston, MA (April 2, 2007) – Sports Radio 850 WEEI today announced a series of new programs surrounding Boston Red Sox Baseball that will begin in earnest next Wednesday April 4th with the creation of “Red Sox Wednesday.”
As the home of Wednesday Night Baseball, WEEI will air non stop Red Sox Programming all day long leading up to the game, beginning with Dennis and Callahan. Jerry Remy joins D&C each Wednesday at 9am, Red Sox Manager Terry Francona will
join Dale and Holley at 12 noon, and a Red Sox player of the week will be on the Big Show with Glenn Ordway. In addition, Red Sox Ace Curt Schilling and Sox CEO Larry Lucchino will return with regular segments on the Dennis and Callahan show.
“WEEI is, has always been, and will continue to be Boston’s home for the most comprehensive coverage of the Red Sox,” said VP of Programming and Operations Jason Wolfe. “Our lineup of talent is second to none, and we are extremely excited to be able to
provide our listeners with the most insightful, compelling and entertaining brand of Red Sox talk anywhere.”
On all game nights, WEEI’s night time program lineup is also getting a makeover. Mike Adams will move up an hour to host the newly created show “Red Sox On Deck” from 6 until game time. “Red Sox On Deck” will be a rapid fire pre-game show that will be
caller driven and will include live guests from Fenway Park.  “The Daily Planet” follows at 7pm.  Adams will re-cap the day’s hottest and most interesting, sports topics, both locally and nationally.  The show will also play back pieces of the best interviews of the
day from Dennis and Callahan, Dale and Holley and the Big Show. As the game ends each night, Adams will be first on the scene with calls and reaction, including guests from the site and locker room reaction. WEEI’s coverage will conclude with Jon Rish and “Red Sox Review,” a caller driven show until 1am.
