John Dennis' Bio

John Dennis
John graduated magna cum laude from Kent State University in 1974 after earning a degree in telecommunications and journalism.  As a finalist that year in ABC’s nationwide search for a college-aged sideline announcer for NCAA football, Dennis became the youngest sports director in the history of NBC affiliates at WDAF in Kansas City at age 22.  He spent three years in KC before the bright lights of Boston called.  During his three decades at Channel 7 (1977-1997), Dennis wore a variety of name tags including weekend sports anchor, feature reporter and sports director.  In his 21 years at WNAC/WHDH, John worked for 3 different ownership groups and 17 different news directors.  He won eight Emmy Awards for broadcast excellence. Dennis has covered a wide variety of events spanning the globe, including the 1994 Winter Olympics in Lillehammer Norway, Americas Cup Yacht Racing in Newport, World Series, Stanley Cup finals, NBA championships, U.S. Open Golf, and all of Marvelous Marvin Hagler’s middleweight title fights. In October of 1997, John resigned from Channel 7 to co-host “The Dennis & Callahan Show” with Gerry Callahan on WEEI.
