Ex-Red Sox broadcaster Tim Neverett has found a warm landing spot. The Dodgers announced Monday Neverett will join their broadcast team next season, calling games on both TV and radio. He will serve as the backup TV announcer when Joe Davis has national commitments and fill-in for longtime radio voice Charley Steiner, who’s cutting back his schedule. 

Nevrett’s move to Los Angeles was already finalized when he announced his departure from the Red Sox booth last week, according to industry sources.

Prior to arriving in Boston in 2016, Neverett worked as the Pirates’ radio play-by-play announcer for six years. The veteran broadcaster is a New Hampshire native and Emerson College graduate. 

In addition to Neverett, ex-Red Sox skipper Kevin Kennedy and Red Sox legend Nomar Garciaparra are part of the Dodgers’ broadcast team. Red Sox West lives on. 

WEEI announced last week it’s looking for a new announcer with significant play-by-play experience to call games alongside Red Sox Hall of Famer Joe Castiglione next season. Candidates are expected to lift their nose up from the media guide once in a while, which the Boston Globe and other outlets confused with a desire to turn Red Sox radio into the “Big Show” redux, or something.
