Dan Roche from CBS Boston is here to help Fred Toucher his new co-host for the morning show!
Two weeks ago, one of the hosts of the highly successful morning radio show “Toucher & Rich,” on 98.5 The Sports Hub, Boston’s home for the New England Patriots, Boston Bruins and Boston Celtics, officially announced their decision to go their separate ways, with Rich Shertenlieb departing from 98.5 The Sports Hub.
Fred Toucher made the announcement on a Friday morning, underscoring the show’s goal of securing a new co-host by the beginning of the new year.
As the quest for a replacement unfolds, speculation is rife regarding who will step into Shertenlieb’s role alongside Fred Toucher. Jim Murray, previously considered a potential replacement, has already ruled out embracing the “miserable” morning hours and says he’s “comfortable and happy” as the third chair on highly successful afternoon show “Felger and Mazz.”
Regardless of who assumes the position, CBS Boston’s Dan Roche has outlined five qualities he believes the new co-host should possess.
