Red Sox Pick New Voices For Fenway Park PA Announcer
The best job in New England goes to...three different men. The Red Sox have announced three new voices to replace the late Carl Beane as Fenway Park's PA Announcer.
Dick Flavin will handle Opening Day duties, as well as most of the day games. He'll cover for former Red Sox intern, Henry Mahegan while he's in school. He's a Charlestown High School teacher who will be behind the mic for the night games.
Legendary sportscaster Bob Lobel will cover Saturday games. Lobel is best known for his many years at WBZ-TV.
The search has been ongoing since January when 342 people tried out for the job. According to Masslive.com, the Red Sox may end up picking one of the three as one of them begins to emerge. This was how the Red Sox settled on Carl Beane in
"It is possible that one person will emerge, but at this point, these three voices and personalities each bring sound, color, and history to Fenway Park," --Red Sox senior advisor to the CEO Dr. Charles Steinberg.
This was how the Red Sox settled on Carl Beane in 2003.
"In 2003, when we selected Carl Beane, he too was one of three, and he quickly emerged as the lead singer," --Dr. Charles Steinberg
