Red Sox voice Jon Rish has decided to quit WEEI, according to the Boston Globe.
Entercom apparently asked Rish to take a 30-percent pay-cut to stay, and Rish refused, instead opting to put in his two weeks notice during the season. His last day will be on April 24.
For those who don’t know, Rish handles the pre- and post-game duties on WEEI for Red Sox games, and has done so since 2006. He also fills in on Red Sox broadcasts with Joe Costiglione, when Dave O’Brien can’t call games due to his other ESPN duties.
Entercom recently fired longtime host Glen Ordway as it continues to trim its budget for WEEI.
