WEEI Boston Swaps Midday & Afternoon Shows
Entercom Sports 93.7 WEEI-FM Boston and its eight station network is debuting a new on-air lineup on Monday, August 13 as it rearranges its midday and afternoon talent.
Midday hosts Glenn Ordway, Lou Merloni and Christian Fauria will move to the 2-6pm timeslot currently held by Dale Arnold and Rich Keefe, who will make the reverse move to 10am-2pm. The move is being done to bring Ordway and Arnold back to the dayparts they are most associated with.
Both men were part of WEEI’s original lineup when it flipped to Sports in 1991, Arnold co-hosted middays with various partners from then until 2011 when he moved to weekends. He returned to the weekday lineup in afternoons in 2014. Ordway co-hosted afternoons from 1995-2013 before being let go. He returned the following year in the midday slot.
