WEEI midday host Dale Arnold announced today that he is ready to call it a career. His last full-time appearance on the Boston sports station will take place tomorrow.

The announcement came without a lot of fanfare. Rich Keefe didn’t mention anything about a major announcement during his crossover segment with the Greg Hill Show in morning drive. In fact, the announcement was saved for the very last segment of the show.

Arnold simply told the audience that “Tomorrow will be the last time I do a radio show at this radio station.”

He noted that while the announcement was sudden, the decision was not. Arnold said that the exit had been plotted for several weeks. He cited the desire to have more time to spend with his wife, who was forced to retire from her own job last year for health reasons, as the reason for his retirement.

Arnold has been with the station for the majority of is existence, trailing back to 1991 when it arrived on the scene as Sports Radio 580. He’s also enjoyed stints as the play-by-play voice of both the New England Patriots and the Boston Bruins. Though his weekday responsibilities will come to an end, Arnold will remain involved with the station calling some Boston Red Sox games during the 2021 season.

“I’ve done somewhere in the vicinity of 29,000 hours of sports talk radio,” Arnold said. “I’ve done 30 years at this radio station, since they opened the doors. I’ve done 33 years in the Boston market. And I’ve had enough.”

This is the second full-time co-host to announce their exit from WEEI in recent days. On Wednesday, Danielle Murr announced Friday would be her last day alongside Greg Hill as part of the station’s morning show.

No word yet on who will take over in middays on WEEI. As details become available we’ll keep you posted.

670 The Score morning host Mike Mulligan is being awarded the Father Finnegan Memorial Award from Loyola University Chicago this weekend, and some of his colleagues congratulated him on the air Friday morning.

The award is given “in recognition of outstanding humanitarianism and service to youth through athletics”. Mulligan — a 1984 graduate of Loyola University Chicago — will receive the award Saturday during the Loyola Athletics Hall of Fame ceremony during a game against George Mason.

“Tremendous award,” co-host David Haugh said. “Proud moment for the show. Proud moment for you family.”

“They’re giving me an award for correctly picking the Super Bowl on September 8th,” Mulligan joked.

“That is fantastic,” Laurence Holmes said, while his co-host, Dan Bernstein, continued to say “wow”. “Congratulations. You shouldn’t be embarrassed. You should be proud.”

“I’m being celebrated for being old,” Mully joked.

“That’s not what that award says,” countered Holmes. “It says something completely different.”

The Mully & Haugh host eventually admitted he was appreciative of the award bestowed upon him by his alma mater.

“It’s a good thing. I’m very moved by it. Sister Jean will be there,” Mully said. “She has a book coming out with — I think — Seth Davis.”

Colin Cowherd: Tony Romo Regressing Because He Loves Golf

“I’ve always felt like Tony Romo is one of those guys — and we all have somebody in our social circle like this — he got the golf bug. He’s had it for 15 years.

The performance of CBS Sports NFL analyst Tony Romo has been a hot-button topic in sports media circles, especially after a widely-regarded lackluster performance during the AFC Championship Game. Colin Cowherd believes he knows why Romo has regressed.

During an episode of The Colin Cowherd Podcast, the sports radio host claimed golf is the reason behind Romo’s regression.

“Romo wants to be on the Tour. He literally wants to be on the Tour,” Cowherd said. “And what’s the first thing Aaron Rodgers does in the off-season? He goes and golfs, he loves it. Both, by the way, great golfers, especially Romo. But I’ve always felt like Tony Romo is one of those guys — and we all have somebody in our social circle like this — he got the golf bug. He’s had it for 15 years.

“Tony wants to be on the PGA Tour — but he likes the paycheck from CBS.”

Cowherd also added he hasn’t hired potential employees in the past if they told him they loved golf during the interview process, saying he has a theory that as men age they “get addicted to golf”.

“They’re on PGATour.com, they’re putting in the backyard, they’re thinking about it at work, they’re scheduling a trip to Scotland and they lose sight of their other job,” Cowherd said.
