WEEI officially announced Tuesday that Mike Salk will join Michael Holley on the station’s afternoon drive program.
The Globe reported last Wednesday that Salk, a Sudbury native who cohosted a successful program on ESPN 710 in Seattle since April 2009, would replace longtime host Glenn Ordway. Ordway’s final day after 27 years at the station was Friday.
“For a kid who grew up rooting for Boston’s sports teams, I can’t wait to get behind that microphone and connect with the most avid sports fans in the country,” Salk said in a statement. “From the best play-by-play in radio to their breakthrough work with the Jimmy Fund, WEEI is still the gold standard in sports talk radio.
“I’m especially excited to talk Bruins hockey. I grew up a rabid Bruins fan and have great memories from the old Boston Garden.
“My wife might not know it yet, but our 1-year-old daughter will be wearing a lot of black and gold in the future.”
