Orsillo Inks Deal to Stay in NESN Red Sox Booth Through 2015
NESN and Red Sox pay-by-play voice Don Orsillo have agreed to a multi-year contract extension through the 2015 season. Orsillo has served as NESN’s Boston Red Sox play-by-play announcer since 2001, calling over 1,400 regular season games on NESN.
“Don is one of the pre-eminent play-by-play announcers in the league and one of the reasons NESN’s Red Sox broadcast is considered among the best in business,” says Sean McGrail, NESN President and CEO. “He brings passion and meticulous preparation to his work every night, along with a sense of humor that has endeared him to Red Sox Nation.”
Orsillo has also served as a play-by-play announcer for TBS during the network’s MLB playoff coverage for the past five seasons. In addition to his play-by-play duties on NESN, Orsillo is also hosting Red Sox Hot Stove LIVE this off-season, which airs Tuesdays at 6:00 PM.
