About The Program

Michael Holley

Michael S. Holley is an American television and radio sports commentator, sports reporter and author. He has written columns for the Boston Globe, The Plain Dealer, and the Akron Business Journal.

While working for the Akron Business Journal in 1993, Holley was one of several reporters who worked on a project studying race relations in Northeastern Ohio. The series, entitled a “A Question of Color” won the 1994 Pulitzer Prize for Meritorius Public Service.

Holley worked as a reporter and columnist for the The Boston Globe from 1997-2001 and then again from 2002-2005, briefly leaving the paper to work at the Chicago Tribune.

In 2005, Holley left the Boston Globe to replace Bob Neumeier as co-host on WEEI midday sports radio talk show. The show was renamed Dale & Holley Show and featured Holley and former Bruins play-by-play announcer Dale Arnold who discussed the various Boston sports teams.

In October 2008, Holley replaced Donny Marshall as host of Celtics Now, a weekly program on Comcast SportsNet that covers on and off court stories related to the Boston Celtics.

On Februuary 15, 2011, Holley joined Glenn Ordway as co-host of the afternoon drive WEEI program“The Big Show”. Mike Salk replaced Glenn Ordway and the show was renamed Salk & Holley on March 20,2013. Mike Salk left the station on March 12, 2014 ending Salk and Holley. On April 1, 2014 WEEI-FM relaunched the Dale and Holley Show with his former co-host Dale Arnold from 2 - 6 PM.

On February 28, 2018, Holley announced that he would be leaving WEEI to pursue a full time television role with NBC Sports Boston. It was a very emotional decision for Holley after spending 13 yars with the station and 10 of those years with his radio partner and best friend, on and off the air, Dale Arnold.

One of Holley books, Patriot Reign: Bill Belichick, the Coaches, and the Players Who Built a Champion made the New York Times Best Seller list for non-fiction.

Holley has appeared on the ESPN television program Around the Horn as well as I, Max on Fox Sports Net.
