WEEI 93.7 FM recently announced that Sudbury native Mike Salk will join Michael Holley in afternoon drive, weekdays from 2-6 p.m., beginning March 20th. Salk joins WEEI from 710 AM ESPN in Seattle, where he's co-hosted the midday "Brock and Salk Show" since April 2009.
Salk helped grow the "Brock and Salk Show" exponentially the last four years. As of this past September, the show ranked No. 1 with the station's core demo of men 25-54. Salk also was a frequent contributor to 710 ESPN's website and will do the same, in a variety of ways, for WEEI.com. He also has been a part of the ESPN Radio network since 2007, hosting "SportsCenter Saturday" and serving as a regular fill-in host over the past few years.
Salk is no stranger to the Boston sports talk radio scene, having worked at 890 ESPN Radio Boston from 2005 until 2009. He primarily served as co-host of the station's midday show with Bob Halloran, and he also was the station's Red Sox beat reporter, covering every game of the team's run to the 2007 World Series.
"For a kid who grew up rooting for Boston's sports teams, I can't wait to get behind that microphone and connect with the most avid sports fans in the country," Salk said. "From the best play-by-play in radio to their breakthrough work with the Jimmy Fund, WEEI is still the gold standard in sports talk radio.
"I'm especially excited to talk Bruins hockey. I grew up a rabid Bruins fan and have great memories from the old Boston Garden. My wife might not know it yet, but our 1-year old daughter will be wearing a lot of black and gold in the future."
Added Salk: "Teaming up with someone as hard-working, gifted and passionate about his craft as Michael Holley makes this situation even better for me returning home. I can't wait to get to work."
Said Holley: "Mike is energetic, has a tireless work ethic, and believes in having a show that is accessible to all audiences. I'm looking forward to sharing some of the talks we've had with our listeners. I think that they'll find the new show to be fast, fun and smart. I would be remiss if I didn't mention what a tremendous blessing it was to work with Glenn Ordway for nearly three years. It didn't take us long to develop a bond, and I believe that mutual respect could be detected on the air. I anticipate a similar connection with Mike."
Said Jason Wolfe, VP of Programming for Entercom Boston: "Mike Salk has a proven record of success, and I couldn't be more excited to bring him back home to Boston. He's a very skilled broadcaster, a fun personality and a passionate sports fan. I'm really looking forward to the new dynamic that he and Michael Holley will provide on a daily basis."
