Kevin Graham has been hired by Entercom Boston as the new brand manager for WEEI.
While the title is different, he in essence replaces Jason Wolfe, the longtime programming director who was let go by the station last week after nearly 22 years.
“I am honored and excited to join the WEEI team," Graham said in a statement. "WEEI is one of the most recognizable and powerful sports radio brands in the country.
“With great resources, amazing talent, and one of the best digital brands in sports, the sky is the limit. I can’t wait to get started, especially with the Red Sox in the midst of such a great season.”
Graham will begin his new job in early September.
Graham comes to WEEI from KFAN (1320) in Salt Lake City, where he was program director and afternoon drive cohost.
Graham has also worked at and/or helped build sports stations in Columbus, Pittsburgh, ESPN Radio in New York City, and Detroit.
He also has significant experience in on-line media, an area of increased emphasis at WEEI.
“WEEI is a more complete sports brand than ever before,” said Entercom general manager Jeff Brown. “Kevin will bring a fresh perspective to the entire WEEI team and our complete package of digital sports assets.”
