Will Red Sox PA job be a Fenway triple play of Lobel, Flavin, and Mahegan?

Will it take three people to fill Carl Beane's shoes at Fenway Park this summer?
Last Friday (March 22nd) on WEEI's Dennis & Callahan show, Gerry Callahan reported that longtime sportscaster Bob Lobel, TV personality/satirist Dick Flavin, and former Red Sox media relations staffer Henry Mahegan would be the three sharing PA duties at Fenway Park this season.
The Red Sox would not confirm this report.

"I think they're waiting for the results of the swimsuit competition," Lobel said on Friday when asked to comment on the report. "I'd be pretty excited to be part of the mix. I've had a lot of fun doing the job as a guest."

When Lobel was asked if he would bring his endearing personality to the role if selected, he replied, "it will evolve, I'm just excited about it, if true, but I haven't heard a thing."
The finalists were brought to Fort Myers, Fla. in March, where their voices were heard in the open air of JetBlue Park and their presentations were analyzed by the Red Sox brass.
