Veteran NESN anchor Tom Caron signed a multi-year contract extension with the New England sports network.

Caron is the host of NESN’s Red Sox pre and post-game programming and many of the network’s Red Sox off-season studio shows, including Red Sox Hot Stove LIVE. Along with his baseball coverage, Caron is NESN’s college hockey play-by-play announcer and a contributor at NESN.com.

“This is the most exciting Red Sox off-season since Theo Epstein had Thanksgiving dinner with the Schillings,” Caron said. “I can’t wait to get the season started. It has been an honor to work alongside some of the best talent and producers in the industry for the past 15 years, at a network that continues to grow and serve the fans of New England. New England is home for me, so I’m thrilled to be staying home and part of the NESN team in the greatest era in New England sports history.”
