Notes[edit]

  • During the 2013 season, Jerry Remy took a leave of absence after his son, Jared Remy, was arrested for murder.[2]
  • Red Sox color commentator Jerry Remy was off the air indefinitely during the 2009 season while he recovered from complications of cancer. NESN wuse guest analysts in his absence. Dennis Eckersley did the majority of home games and Dave Roberts did most of the road games. [3]
  • In 2000, Bob Rodgers replaced Bob Kurtz when he left to cover the Minnesota Wild. Tom Caron replaced Rodgers as studio host.
  • From 1990-2004, Sean McDonough missed Red Sox games while covering events for CBS Sports and ESPN, making it necessary for the channel he was working for to hire a second announcer to serve as a fill-in. [4] For games when Bob Montgomery served as the play by play announcer, NESN analyst Jerry Remy would serve as color commentator.
  • Dave O'Brien misses Red Sox games due to his work on ESPN.
  • Dave Martin joined the Red Sox radio broadcast crew in June 1972 when John MacLean left due to illness
  • In 1970, announcers Ken Coleman, Ned Martin, and Johnny Pesky refused to cross the picket line of WHDH-TV's electrical workers. During the strike, Leo Egan called games on television and Spike Brown handled the radio broadcasts.[1]
  • Don Gillis filled in most for most of the 1957 season while Curt Gowdy was out with a bad back.
  • The only game broadcast in 1926 was opening day
  • Bill Kulik was only a part time broadcaster
  • Juan Oscar Baez joined Spanish radio crew in June after J.P. Villaman's death
  • On July 25, 2008, WTTT swapped call signs with sister station WWDJ in Hackensack, New Jersey
  • Jon Rish resigned during the 2013 season. He was replaced by Sean Grande and Lou Merloni
