Kevin Gregg has been working for the Red Sox for several weeks now as the director of media relations. It became official on Thursday.
Gregg, 32, spent the last six seasons with the Phillies on their communications staff. The Philadelphia native and James Madison University grad is the son of the late Eric Gregg, an umpire for parts of 23 seasons in the majors. Kevin also worked for the 76ers for four seasons during and after college.
Gregg replaces Pam Kenn, who spent four years as media relations director. She is staying with the team as senior director of public affairs. Kenn, 33, is a native of Burlington and a UMass-Amherst graduate. She has been with the Red Sox since 2000.
On a personal note, thanks to Pam for all her assistance. On a good day, that job is a difficult one and the Red Sox have had too many bad days in recent years. But Pam kept her sense of humor dealing with the inflated egos of athletes, executives and media types.
