May 13, 2014 - 8:51 am

BOSTON, MA – On the heels of 93.7 WEEI-FM’s announcement of a personnel change in its midday program (5/12), current “Mut and Merloni” co-host Mike “Mut” Mutnansky has been named host of the station’s Boston Red Sox pre- and postgame shows. He replaces John Ryder in the coveted role effective later this month.

Mutnansky joined WEEI in 2005 as a sports anchor and weekend host. He became a regular fill-in host for the station’s primetime shows and in 2011 was teamed with former Boston Red Sox infielder Lou Merloni in the 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. slot. Mutnansky is a graduate of the University of Connecticut.

“We’re very excited that we were able to keep Mut with WEEI and move him into a very important role as our Red Sox pre- and postgame host,” said WEEI Program Director and Brand Manager Kevin Graham. “Mut’s energy and insight is a welcome addition to what is already the best radio broadcast team in baseball.”

As part of his new duties, Mutnansky will also appear on the “Planet Mikey” show, weeknights 6-10 p.m., as well as hosting his own 10 p.m. to midnight program on the WEEI Sports Radio Network.
