Boston Radio: WEEI's Alex Reimer Leaving Radio for Politics

Alex Reimer
WEEI 93.7 FM host and writer Alex Reimer is headed to the MA State House, reports boston.com.

After nearly three years providing a liberal point of view on the largely more conservative Boston sports radio station, Reimer is switching to the field of politics to take a job as communications directer for Massachusetts state Sen. Eric Lesser. The 26-year-old announced the move in a column Monday on WEEI’s website.

In addition to radio appearances, Reimer blogged and wrote a regular sports media column for WEEI.com. In 2018, he earned national attention — and local notoriety — for being suspended by the station for calling Tom Brady’s daughter a “pissant” during a show shortly before the Super Bowl.

Reimer wrote Monday that he grew up aspiring to work in sports talk radio. As a 12-year-old, the Natick native was even profiled by The Boston Globe for building a following on his precocious sports blog.

However, his interests have recently shifted further toward politics.

Lesser’s previous communications director, Ryan Migeed, announced earlier this month that he was leaving the senator’s office to go to law school.

Reimer wrote Monday that he was “amazingly” leaving WEEI on good terms, adding that “this probably isn’t the last you’ll hear from me in this space.”
