Patriots debut new voices and styles

Depending on your choice of medium for the Patriots’ preseason opener Friday night against the Philadelphia Eagles, you’ll hear either a new play-by-play voice or very little play-by-play at all.

On 98.5 The Sports Hub, Bob Socci will make his debut as the new radio voice of the Patriots, joining holdover analyst Scott Zolak in the booth. Socci replaces the legendary Gil Santos, who retired following the AFC Championship game in January after 36 seasons as the Patriots announcer, the last 22 consecutively.
