Hearst’s WCVB in Boston has named Duke Castiglione the station’s new lead sports anchor.

He finds it humbling.
“It is truly humbling to step into this role that my friend and colleague, Mike Lynch, has done in legendary fashion for nearly four decades. I’m excited for the opportunity to lead the outstanding SportsCenter 5 team.’’

Lynch, the longtime lead sports anchor at the station, stepped aside last August and took on a part-time role at the station.

Castiglione’s elevation comes two years after his arrival in Boston from Fox’s WNYW in New York.

The Massachusetts native is the son of longtime Red Sox radio broadcaster Joe Castiglione.
