98.5 The Sports Hub announced today that Bob Socci (pronounced SO-See) will be the new radio voice of the New England Patriots, replacing the legendary Gil Santos.
Socci has been the radio voice of Navy football for the last 16 years and also was the lead voice
CBS Sports Network’s Patriot League college basketball telecasts.
The Navy and CBS connections surely could not have hurt Socci chances.
The news was first reported by Chad Finn of the Boston Globe.
Somewhere, Gary Tanguay and Jon Meterparel weep bitterly…
