Marshall Hook- Part-time Hub Headlines
Known primarily as being the guy who drives around in snowstorms before coming to the Sports Hub, Marshall has actually been working in radio since (gasp!) the mid-90’s. He first hosted a nightly call-in show for a small station in Methuen cleverly titled “Hooked on Sports.” It focused on the vibrant Merrimack Valley sports scene and lasted exactly 70 nights before being given it’s well-earned death sentence. During that time, he also reported on both local and major league sports for MediaOne cable television and spent 20-years as a credentialed member of the Red Sox press corps, covering the team in a variety of roles. Upon taking a job in Boston for MetroNetworks, he made his WEEI-AM debut in 1999, doing a single flash for the Imus in the Morning Show. The next 12 years were spent mixing sports in with both traffic and news for just about every radio and television station in town. He started on the Hub late in 2011 and will never stop arguing with Felger about the value of kickers.
