As first reported on December 18th, WEEI (and, functionally, the Red Sox) have formally hired Tim Neverett to join Joe Castiglione in the radio broadcast booth. The 49-year old was formerly a broadcaster for the Pittsburgh Pirates (the last seven years) and the Colorado Rockies (the previous four years). Neverett beat out upwards of 200 applicants for the right to replace Dave O'Brien—who is moving to the TV side. Said Neverett, "For a kid who grew up in New England [Nashua, New Hampshire] cheering for the Red Sox, this is an extremely rare, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity." Said Castiglione, "I am excited about having Tim join our broadcast team. I have admired his work with the Pirates and am certain with his experience, New England roots and lifelong knowledge of the Red Sox, it will be a seamless transition to our broadcasts."
