Ex-Sox Announcer Tim Neverett Joins Los Angeles Dodgers Broadcast Team

After three years broadcasting Red Sox games on the WEEI Sports Radio Network, Tim Neverett has signed on to broadcast games for the Los Angeles Dodgers. Letting his contract at WEEI lapse due to a "contentious atmosphere" at the station, Neverett returns to the National League—where the New England native spent six years broadcasting games for the Pittsburgh Pirates. Said Neverett: "I am honored and humbled to have the opportunity to join such an established and talented group of radio and television broadcasters, as well as the gifted production personnel with the Dodgers. My family and I are thrilled to be able to be part of the Dodger family and be back in the National League. I am very much looking forward to getting started, renewing old acquaintances and making new ones." Reportedly, the 52-year-old Neverett will work a select number of games on both the radio and television side of Dodger broadcasts—subbing for both Charley Steiner (radio) and Joe Davis (television). He will be going from doing play-by-play for the reigning World Series Champions to doing the same thing for the guys they beat. Still, not a bad lateral move. We wish Tim the best in his new gig!
