Michael Holley first joined WEEI as a co-host of the midday show in March of 2005 after successful ventures in both television and writing. Michael graduated from Point Park University in 1992 and began his career in journalism at the Akron Beacon Journal covering high school sports and later on the Cleveland Cavaliers.
In 1993, Holley was one of a dozen reporters who contributed to the Beacon Journal's Pulitzer Prize winning series "A Question of Color." Michael came to the Boston Globe in 1994 and covered the Boston Celtics for three and a half years. Michael brought a fresh and edgy approach to the Globe after becoming a columnist in 1998. In September 2001, he briefly worked at the Chicago Tribune before returning to his previous position with the Globe that same year.
Michael further made his presence felt on the national stage with appearances on ESPN's popular show "Around the Horn" and later on Fox SportsNet's "I, MAX." He solidified his reputation as one of the nation's most talented writers with his New York Times best selling "Patriot Reign". He has also written "Red Sox Rule," "Never Give Up" and "War Room."
Dale Arnold has the most vast and varied sports broadcasting resume in Boston since the late Curt Gowdy. He has experience in every platform and position within the sports broadcasting industry and is the only person to have called play-by-play for all five Boston professional teams (Red Sox, Patriots, Celtics, Bruins and Revolution). In addition to professional play-by-play, Dale has also called Boston College football, basketball and hockey, as well as NCAA hockey for Boston University, Frozen Fenway and the Beanpot. As a television host, he has worked on broadcasts for the Boston Bruins, Boston Red Sox, NESN Daily and the Instigators.
On the radio dial, he has served as a talk show host in Boston since 1991 - first as a solo host, then as a cohost with Eddie Andelman, Bob Neumeier and Michael Holley. His shows enjoyed top-ranked ratings success and were consistently among the top-ranked midday programs in Boston. He has been named Best Boston Sports Talk Show Host by Boston Magazine.
Dale currently hosts "The Dale & Holley Show", from 2 to 6 p.m., on WEEI. It is the second time that he and Michael Holley have been paired together.
