Sheen will “plug his sitcom, ‘Anger Management,’ which premieres June 28” (USA TODAY, 6/22).

MIC CHECK: In Boston, Chad Finn cites sources as saying that Gil Santos is “expected to be behind the microphone for his 36th season as the radio play-by-play voice of the Patriots.” His return is “an extraordinary development given his health problems over the winter.” Still to be determined is “whether Santos will work a full schedule,” and whether Santos’s longtime partner Gino Cappelletti “will return as well" (BOSTON GLOBE, 6/22).
