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.
My responsibilities at WEEI included hosting our one-hour Red Sox pregame shows and Red Sox Review after the game. On top of that, 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 past fall, I called NCAA tournament games for UNH men's soccer and Northeastern basketball, soccer and volleyball on NESN. I also filled in calling Boston College Hockey on WEEI 850 while embarking on my second year as the voice of UNH women's basketball on ESPN+.
This past spring and summer, I broadcasted BC baseball games on WEEI 850 through Learfield, Northeastern baseball on NESN and FloSports, and filled in on WooSox (Red Sox Triple-A) radio broadcasts.
Prior to moving back to the Northeast, I began my broadcasting career 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.
