One day after announcing that he would return to the broadcast booth for 2014, Jerry Remy made an appearance on WEEI's Dennis & Callahan Morning Show. A somber-sounding Remy recounted the process that led to his decision to return to the broadcast booth—acknowledging that it took a major effort from family and friends to turn around his initial resistance to a comeback. He was also asked how he would approach his re-entry into broadcasting. In a resigned voice Remy stated that he would do his best and "see how it goes". He stated that he was surrounded by smart people at NESN and the Red Sox and they would know if things were working out. Anyone listening to this interview could clearly hear the anguish in Jerry's voice. It will be a long—and sometimes tough—road back. But he is back.
