Orsillo extended

While the Red Sox have made changes to their radio broadcast team for the upcoming season, the television voice of the Sox should stay the same for a while.

Don Orsillo agreed to a multi-year contract extension to remain the voice of the Red Sox on NESN, the network announced in a press release. NESN did not give details on how long the contract would run.

“Don has established himself as one of the best announcers in the game and an important part of our award winning Red Sox broadcast team,” said NESN president Sean McGrail in the release. “We are thrilled that Don has agreed to continue with NESN and look forward to more of the outstanding play-by-play that Red Sox Nation has come to expect.”

Orsillo joined NESN back in 2001 after serving as the play-by-play voice of the Pawtucket Red Sox. Since joining NESN, Orsillo has won two New England Emmy Awards for sports play-by-play and was named the 2005 Massachusetts sportscaster of the year.
