WEEI Insists Red Sox Broadcasts Aren’t Going ‘Talk Show’ Route Despite Booth Shake-Up

One way or another, the Boston Red Sox radio broadcast will sound different in 2019.
WEEI, the flagship radio station of the reigning World Series champions, parted with play-by-play man Tim Neverett earlier this week. Shortly after the news was announced, rumors circulated that WEEI might be toying with the idea of dramatically overhauling the way in which games were broadcast.
The Boston Globe reported Tuesday that WEEI considered a change in which the game broadcast would sound more like a talk show and not the traditional baseball broadcast.
The Globe’s sports media reporter, Chad Finn, reported Thursday morning that WEEI planned to go the talk show route and even posted the job opening on the Sportscasters Talent Agency of America website. An email with the listing went out, stating “WEEI wants to drop the conventional radio broadcast to make the call of the game sound more like a talk show.”
WEEI program director Joe Zarbano disputed that report shortly after Finn’s tweet, and the two went back and forth over Twitter. Zarbano eventually tweeted that he contacted STAA, indicating the agency would correct the listing and admitted fault.

LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers got all sorts of frustrated Thursday night in Houston. The Rockets are known as one of the best foul-drawing teams in the NBA and it clearly got under the skin of the new-look Lake Show.

I spoke to @STAAtalent and they will be correcting what they initially posted. They were apologetic and admitted fault for not checking with anyone at WEEI before sending that incorrect post to its clients. https://t.co/aQMnI4Yjn9

WEEI also offered more information in a weekly media column from WEEI.com’s Alex Reimer. He, too, insisted the format isn’t changing.
“It’s never been our intention to turn the broadcast into a talk show,” Zarbano told his company’s website.
The Red Sox, through a spokesperson, also confirmed to WEEI.com that the team “doesn’t plan any format changes to (our) radio broadcast.”
So, apparently, that settles that — for now. WEEI is looking for candidates to pursue the “dream job opportunity (to) sit alongside Red Sox Hall of Famer Joe Castiglione in the broadcast booth.”
We’ll just have to wait and see about what that ultimately sounds like.
