Entercom has announced the new play-by-play broadcast team for Boston Red Sox baseball games on WEEI-FM/Boston, the flagship station for the team. The team will consist of play-by-play announcer Joe Castiglione, who is entering his 38th season and veteran broadcasters Will Flemming, Sean McDonough and Lou Merloni.

"Last year we had the unique opportunity to rotate different broadcast talents throughout the season, all of whom did an amazing job," said Entercom/Boston Regional President and Market Manager Mark Hannon. "This year we are thrilled to have a more permanent and consistent lineup with Will, Sean, and Lou who will join Red Sox Hall of Famer Joe Castiglione to deliver a dynamic broadcast experience for Red Sox fans."

"Joe Castiglione has been a staple of our radio broadcast for nearly three decades, even surpassing the tenure of legendary Red Sox Hall of Fame broadcaster Ned Martin (1961-1993)," added Boston Red Sox President/CEO Sam Kennedy. "We are lucky to have his steady voice take us through another Red Sox season, joined by some of the best sports analysts in the industry."

Flemming returns for his second season with the WEEI Red Sox Radio Network. Prior to joining WEEI, Flemming served as the play-by-play voice of the Pawtucket Red Sox. He also has experience calling a wide range of sports including college basketball and hockey.

McDonough is entering his second season calling games on WEEI's Red Sox Radio Network. The Hingham, MA native is currently a leading play-by-play voice on ESPN college football broadcasts and previously served as the play-by-play voice of "Monday Night Football" from 2016 to 2017, as well as the television play-by-play announcer for the Red Sox from 1988-2004.

Merloni began calling games for the WEEI Red Sox Radio Network in 2013. The Framingham, MA native played nine seasons in Major League Baseball, including six with the Red Sox. Merloni has served as a talk show host for WEEI since 2008 and currently serves as a co-host for the station's afternoon show "Ordway, Merloni and Fauria," weekday afternoons from 2-6pm.

All three broadcasters will join the voice of the Red Sox, Joe Castiglione, as he enters his 38th season behind the mic. Inducted into the Red Sox Hall of Fame in 2014, Castiglione has called over 6,000 Red Sox games including four World Series championships. Castiglione was a 2020 nominee for the prestigious Ford Frick Award by the National Baseball Hall of Fame.

In addition to the main team of Castiglione, McDonough, Flemming and Merloni, broadcasters Jon "Boog" Sciambi and Dave O' Brien will call select games.
