Source: Kevin Graham To Replace Jason Wolfe as WEEI Program Director

According to an industry  source, the choice to replace Jason Wolfe is likely to be current 1320 KFAN Salt Lake City Program Director Kevin Graham.

Here is a quick bio on Graham from when he returned to KFAN last summer:

Kevin Graham is no stranger to Utah Sports Radio. One of the original architects of 1320 KFAN in 1996, Kevin returns to rebuild the heritage sports talker into the dominant sports radio station in the market. After leaving KFAN Kevin went on to a successful programming career assembling and building sports stations in Columbus, ESPN Radio Pittsburgh and New York City, as well as Detroit before returning to Salt Lake to host the highly popular Monson and Graham afternoon show for five years on the old 1280 The Zone. In 2010 Kevin moved to Phoenix to program Sports Radio 620 KTAR and then left to start his own sports digital and sports radio consulting company. He is married to his wife of 18 years Amy and has 12 year old twin daughters Madie and Josie.

Graham also cohosts the Gunther & Graham radio show each day on afternoon drive.

I haven’t received confirmation on this, so we’ll see how things play out, but  I thought I would pass it along.

    Does this mean that Weei will continue its efforts to ESPN’ize themselves by bringing in somebody who has not been in the Boston Market? Can we expect the same hero worship that goes on at the four-letter network?

      Mick…I think you nailed it. When I read the news I was thinking..just what the Boston Market needs…a program director from Salt Lake City with zero ties to the Boston Market. Then I read more of his bio and every stop he had as program director he has programmed an on-air show for himself. So I am looking forward to the takes of Utah ex-pat as he tries to dissect the passion of Sox fans, or the frustration of Patriots fans as they deal with coverage from the Globe. Utah is well known for puck talk so that should be informative. This will be awesome!

    Will he be allowed to make changes or will he be another scapegoat for Brown’s bungling. Let’s hope he is allowed to “shop for the groceries” and throw out the trash (M & M and Salk)

    From this morning:

    @BostonGlobe: Jared Remy, son of Red Sox broadcaster Jerry Remy, in custody after fatal stabbing in Waltham http://b.globe.com/18zzIYw

    GUYS I THINK WE NEED TO EXAMINE HOW THE REDSOX WERE RESPONSIBLE FOR NOT CONTROLLING REMY WHO COULD NOT CONTROL HIS SON. WE MUST ALSO URGE THE DOJ TO INVESTIGATE IF BILL BELICHICK AND ROBERT KRAFT HAD ANY RESPONSIBILITY, AS WELL.

      Beat me to it.

      It’s been nearly 2 hours since this news broke and we haven’t heard a peep from the Red Sox, ownership or NESN yet. It’s like they don’t even care.
