Good news Red Sox fans! (maybe? Is this guy a beloved member of Red Sox Nation?)
Tom Caron is sticking around for at least a couple more years. TC, a 15-year veteran at NESN, will continue to serve as the host of the Red Sox pre- and post-game shows. He does a great job, and it wouldn’t be the same without him. What has Bob Rogers been up to these last few years anyway?
Here’s the press release from NESN, via Boston.com:
NESN, New England’s most watched sports network, announced today that they have reached a multi-year contract extension with Tom Caron. The 15-year NESN veteran serves as host of the network’s Red Sox pre and post-game programming along-side baseball Hall of Famers Dennis Eckersley, Jim Rice and Peter Gammons. Caron also hosts many of the network’s Red Sox off-season studio shows including Red Sox Hot Stove LIVE which airs Tuesday nights at 6 p.m. The Lewiston, Maine native also serves as the network’s college hockey play-by-play announcer and blogs regularly at NESN.com.
“Tom leads our Red Sox studio team coverage with trademark smarts, passion and wit,” said Joel Feld, NESN Executive Vice President, Programming and Executive Producer. “We couldn’t be more excited about starting another baseball season with TC in the driver’s seat.”
“This is the most exciting Red Sox off-season since Theo Epstein had Thanksgiving dinner with the Schillings,” said Tom Caron. “I can’t wait to get the season started. It has been an honor to work alongside some of the best talent and producers in the industry for the past 15 years, at a network that continues to grow and serve the fans of New England. New England is home for me, so I’m thrilled to be staying home and part of the NESN team in the greatest era in New England sports history.”
