WEEI SIGNS DALE ARNOLD TO A MULTI-YEAR CONTRACT


SPORTS RADIO 850 WEEI-AM ANNOUNCES IT HAS SIGNED DALE ARNOLD TO A MULTI-YEAR CONTRACT
 
BOSTON (April 17, 2007) Sports Radio 850 WEEI-AM today announced that it has signed Dale Arnold to a new multi-year contact.  Arnold is currently the co-host of “The Dale and Holley Show” in WEEI’s 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. slot, Monday through Friday. 
Arnold has been with WEEI since its inception as a sports station in 1991 and was the host of the first ever sports program the station had when it changed formats from news to sports radio.  Since then, the show has been one of the most successful in the market, and has been ranked number one in nine of the last ten ratings books in its core demo of Men 25-54.
 
“Dale and I started together when WEEI went all sports”, Entercom Vice President of AM Programming and Operations, Jason Wolfe said.  “I produced his show for the first three years of my career at WEEI.  He is a true professional, someone I've admired for a
long time and someone who simply does an outstanding job.  I am thrilled that we have secured his services for the long term.”
 
A native of Brunswick, Maine, Arnold began broadcasting games as a 15-year-old high school sophomore.  He continued his broadcasting work while a student at Bowdoin College, working both football and hockey games.  Upon graduation from college,
Arnold began a seven-year term as a minor league hockey play-by-play announcer for the Maine Mariners of the American Hockey League.  He became the youngest play-by-play announcer in the National Hockey League when he was named the voice of the New
Jersey Devils in 1986.
 
Since coming to Boston, Arnold has been the radio voice for the New England Patriots and New England Revolution.  He also served as radio play-by-play announcer for the Boston Bruins for one season, and is in his tenth season as TV voice of the Bruins on
NESN, where the telecasts have twice been honored with a New England Emmy Award for sports play-by-play coverage.  He is also the only person is Boston sports history to call at least one game for all five professional sports teams in town, having filled in for
both the Boston Celtics and Boston Red Sox.

“I love what I do, I love the company I work for and I love the people I work with,” Arnold said. I take great pride in being with WEEI since we opened the doors, and I'm really looking forward to continuing here for the foreseeable future.”
