2013 WEEI Red Sox Radio Network

WEEI 93.7 FM

The Shaw's WEEI Red Sox Radio Network looks much the same as it has for the last few seasons as Dave O'Brien and Joe Castiglione return for their 7th season together in the booth as the primary announcers for Boston Red Sox baseball.  In the absence of either O'Brien or Castiglione you will hear from fill-in Jon Rish.  All the games will be broadcast from the team's flagship station WEEI FM 93.7 in Boston to its network affiliates through out New England, New York, New Mexico and Wyoming.  As well as having all the home games carried along the XM Satellite Radio network.

O'Brien, a New Hampshire native who enters his 7th season in Shaw's WEEI booth, is probably the most familiar amongst the Red Sox radio crew for the non-Red Sox or non-baseball fan in the crowd due to his heavy schedule with ESPN.  In addition to his duties as the Red Sox lead announcer, Obie does the Wednesday night games for ESPN with former Red Sox shortstop and AL Batting Champion Nomar Garciaparra.  Prior to joining the Red Sox, O’Brien was the play-by-play announcer for the Florida Marlins radio network from 1993 to 2001 when he left to go to ESPN where in addition to baseball he has called World Cup Soccer, college basketball, NBA, MLS and the women's college basketball Final Four.  He has also called games for the New York Mets, Atlanta Braves, Atlanta Falcons and the University of Georgia.

Castiglione, a Hamden CT native, joined to Red Sox broadcasts in 1983 and has worked with such luminaries as Bob Starr, Ken Coleman and Jerry Trupiano in this his 31st season.  Castiglione, who grew up a Yankees fan, has become well known in Red Sox lore for his call of the final out of the 2004 World Series, which ended the team’s 86 year drought without a championship.  When he is not in the radio booth you can usually find Castiglione teaching sports broadcasting at Northeastern University.  Joe has also called games for the Cleveland Cavaliers, Cleveland Indians and Milwaukee Brewers in his career.

Rish is entering his 8th season hosting the Red Sox pre-game and post-game shows on the Red Sox Radio Network, he also handles ""Sox Talk"  the call in show that airs during rain delays in the game.  In addition, Rish is the fill-in for Sox games in the absence of O'Brien or Castiglione.  In addition to WEEI, Rish has worked at ESPN Radio in Bristol CT as a radio Sports Center anchor, and hosted studio programming for major league baseball and the Bowl Championship Series.  He was also the play-by-play announcer for Boston College Eagle's men's hockey and women's basketball.

When Rish is handling play-by-play duties, his usual pregame and post game duties are turned over to John Ryder.  Ryder, when not involved with Red Sox baseball, also is the scoreboard flash anchor for the Planet Mikey show, handles hosting Celtics Rewind and has a weekend show on the flagship station.  According to Ryder’s Facebook page he holds the record for working 2,989 consecutive days without a day off and he is a graduate of every major college on Planet Earth and holds over 8,000 degrees.  He also gets credit for curing the common cold, erasing foreign debt and reversing the negative effects of Global Warming.

Over the air the Red Sox Radio Network has nearly 80 stations in nine states.
