New voice of Boston College Football

Word is that John Meterparel is the new voice of Boston College football. Supposedly this has been in the works for a few months. Yet there is no press release from BC athletics. I wish John luck, but I’m disappointed that they didn’t bring back former BC announcer Sean Grande. My gut tells me Meterparel sees this as a springboard job. It would be nice to have a voice of BC for decades, rather than a few seasons. Given BC’s position in the Boston media hierarchy, the job will probably always attract short-timers.

The deal also shows the growing influence of the Red Sox in BC marketing. Meterparel is an announcer for the morning program on the Sox Flagship station and the Fenway Group helped put this pairing together.
