WEEI-FM/Boston Launches ''The Greg Hill Morning Show''
|RADIO ONLINE | Friday, July 12, 2019|
Entercom announces the upcoming debut of "The Greg Hill Morning Show" on WEEI-FM/Boston, weekdays from 6-10am ET, beginning July 29. The new program will feature longtime Boston radio veteran Greg Hill, who'll transition to WEEI from sister WAAF-FM. Hill will be joined by co-host Danielle Murr and a rotating group of additional contributors. Hill is a Boston fixture since beginning his career at WAAF in 1986 in the promotions department and on-air since 1991.
"Greg is a Boston market veteran with an incredible pedigree and track record of success," said Entercom Boston Regional President and Market Manager Mark Hannon. "We are excited to welcome him to mornings at WEEI and to usher the station into the future."
"I am thrilled to embark on the next chapter in my career in Boston. WEEI is a legendary Boston station and one of the country's first sports stations," added Hill. "I am excited to anchor mornings moving forward. I also want to thank WAAF and all of the listeners and co-workers who have made the last 28 years so amazing. The good news is I will still be talking to them every weekday, just down the dial at 93.7 FM."
Hill will carry over much of his present content, along with the creation of new content for the Sports/Talk format on WEEI. As part of "Patriots Monday," Tom Brady's in-season weekly interview on WEEI will also now be conducted by Hill. The show will also feature a monthly interview with Governor Charlie Baker ("Breakfast with Baker"), as well as many other staple benchmarks.
As part of the changes, longtime morning co-host Gerry Callahan will depart WEEI after more than two decades at the station. He'd been a dominant force and a big part of WEEI over the years. Additionally, air personality Mike "Mut" Mutnansky will transition back to hosting evenings, a position he previously occupied. At sister station WAAF, longtime personality and morning show sports anchor Lyndon Byers will remain in a new capacity. Morning producer Mike Hsu will move to afternoon drive.
