WBZ-TV’s Dan Roche is next on the Boston Sports Media Approval Ratings lineup.
Roche is a long-time WBZ employee, and has worked for both the radio and television side of the company. Starting in 1994 Roche work at WBZ radio as a sports anchor, Bruins host and weekend host of the Sunday Sports Page – one of the shows that got Steve DeOssie his start in radio.
He joined the TV side in 2000, and has served as a sports reporter and anchor, as well as host of Red Sox This Week on TV38.
With Bob Lobel having been let go, it’s very likely that we’re going to be seeing Roche in an expanded role at WBZ-TV.
A local guy, Roche was born in Methuen, went to high school in North Andover and is yet another graduate of Syracuse University.
