It’s been a year of change for Dale Arnold, who was bumped off his longtime 10-2 slot on WEEI this past winter, and moved into a “roving” role, where he fills in whenever needed, hosts on the weekend, and is being used more in play-by-play for the Red Sox and Celtics radio broadcasts.
A Maine native, Arnold has been broadcasting games since he was 15 years old. He attended Bowdoin College, and began doing Maine Mariners games in 1979. In 1986 he got the same job with the New Jersey Devils. From 1988-1990 he was the voice of the New England Patriots.
In 1991, he joined WEEI, and in 1995 he started calling Bruins games for NESN, a post he held until 2007. On WEEI, he had a variety of broadcast partners, from Eddie Andelman, to Bob Neumeier to his last partner, Michael Holley.
