Jon Meterparel Assumes BC Basketball Play-by-Play Duties
CHESTNUT HILL, Mass. – Jon Meterparel, the radio voice of Boston College Football since the 2005 season, will add men’s basketball to his play-by-play duties beginning this year, officials of ISP Sports have announced. ISP Sports manages and produces the Boston College ISP Radio Network.
“We have been extremely pleased with Jon’s work as our football play-by-play man on the BC ISP Sports Network,” said Chris Ferris, Senior Vice President of the ISP Radio Network. “We know he will bring the same professionalism, energy and enthusiasm to our basketball broadcasts and we are excited to have him in this new role.”
Meterparel’s new agreement with ISP extends for the next three years, Ferris added.
“I am thrilled to be the new voice of BC Basketball,” Meterparel said. “It has been an honor to work alongside outstanding people within the athletics program and at ISP the past five years on the football network, and I truly look forward to adding basketball to my responsibilities as well.”
Boston College Director of Athletics Gene DeFilippo expressed his strong support for Meterparel’s new expanded role involving Eagle broadcasts.
“We are very pleased that Jon Meterparel will continue as the voice of Boston College Football and now will serve as our play-by-play announcer for men’s basketball as well,” DeFilippo said. “Jon has established himself as one of the most recognizable figures in the Boston sports media and we are fortunate to have him leading our broadcast team.”
ISP, through an agreement with Fenway Sports Group, has marketed and managed the Boston College ISP Sports Network since 2005. FSG and ISP recently announced a new agreement extending their relationship through June 2019. That agreement coincided with the announcement that WEEI will remain the flagship station for the Eagles’ football and basketball broadcasts through 2015.
Jason Wolfe, Vice President for AM Programming and Operations at WEEI and WRKO was pleased with the announcement of Meterparel’s new duties.
“I’m thrilled for Jon,” Wolfe said. “He’s worked exceptionally hard in his role with BC Football and has truly earned this opportunity. He’ll do a terrific job with basketball, too, and I look forward to working with him and the folks at ISP who produce such quality broadcasts.”
