Joe Weil: Play-by-Play Broadcaster, Sideline Reporter, Host, Anchor
I'm a play-by-play broadcaster, a pregame/postgame host for Red Sox radio broadcasts on WEEI, and a sideline reporter who currently works in a number of different roles in the broadcast industry. I currently broadcast games for Boston College, Northeastern, Holy Cross, UNH, UMass Lowell, and several other New England schools on platforms like NESN, WEEI 850, NBC Sports Boston and ESPN+.
This spring, I am broadcasting BC baseball games on WEEI 850 through Learfield and Northeastern baseball on NESN and FloSports, and will spend the summer as part of Red Sox radio broadcasts.
This past fall and winter, I called games on NESN and ESPN+ for several schools, and I was a rinkside reporter for Hockey East "Game of the Week" broadcasts at UMass Lowell.
Prior to the pandemic, I worked in Winston-Salem, N.C., holding down several broadcast roles. I was the lead play-by-play broadcaster for the Winston-Salem Dash, the White Sox Class A-Advanced affiliate. In 2019, I was voted upon by my peers as the Carolina League Broadcaster of the Year.
On top of my work in Minor League Baseball, I worked at Learfield's headquarters in Winston-Salem, serving as Notre Dame football's studio host for their radio broadcasts. In my role with the Irish, I anchor the entire pregame, halftime and postgame show across 50+ affiliates nationwide, which is the biggest affiliate range for any college football program in the country.
As a studio host for Learfield, I was also fortunate enough to be a part of two National Championship broadcasts. I studio hosted for Villanova basketball during the 2015-2016 season and provided on-air coverage for the team's historic NCAA championship game victory over UNC. In 2017, I served as a host for Gonzaga during the club's run to their first NCAA tournament title game. I graduated from Boston University in May 2015 with a degree in Journalism from the College of Communications.
