As first reported on Boston.com Thursday, Kevin Winter will debut Monday as the replacement for Meterparel as the update anchor on WEEI’s “Dennis and Callahan’’ morning-drive program. The energetic Winter should offer a different dynamic than did the agreeable Meterparel, a staple since 2000 who left at the end of his contract in October to pursue play-by-play opportunities. Winter has been at ESPN Radio since May 2004, serving as an anchor and host, but has experience in Boston, having worked for ESPN 890 and WWZN 1510. Winter is expected to continue to work for ESPN, which is partnered with WEEI in the Boston market, having taken over the familiar 850 AM signal from the Entercom-owned station in September, with WEEI 93.7 ending its simulcast . . . Abby Chin, currently an anchor/reporter at Comcast SportsNet Northwest, will be heading east to join the on-air team at Comcast SportsNet New England. Her Twitter handle is @tvabby.
