NESN hires Dale Arnold for Bruins telecasts

Dale Arnold has long been familiar to NESN viewers and Bruins fans -- but not in the role he will have on the network’s coverage of the Stanley Cup champions this season.

Arnold, who spent 13 seasons as the Bruins play by play voice on the network, will return to NESN as the studio host for the team’s telecasts, industry sources have confirmed.


Arnold replaces Kathryn Tappen, who departed NESN for the NHL Network in July.

Tappen had hosted NESN’s pregame, in-game, and postgame coverage since arriving at the network in 2006.
