The Philadelphia Eagles and CBS Radio’s WIP in Philadelphia have agreed to a new multiyear agreement starting with the 2015 season. The deal includes a new all-Eagles HD Radio multicast station similar to the one CBS has with the Phillies. The Eagles have been heard on CBS Radio stations since 1992 (on WYSP, now WIP after the latter’s move to FM); WIP was the flagship on AM in 1969-91 and again from 2008 through now. Merrill Reese, the longest-tenured play-by-play announcer in the NFL (since 1977), and former Eagles wide receiver Mike Quick will continue to call the games.
Eagles President Don Smolenski said, “We are excited to continue our long-time partnership with CBS Radio and Sports Radio 94WIP. Fans throughout the Philadelphia area know 94 WIP as the radio home of the Philadelphia Eagles and we look forward to more memorable moments as told through the voices of Merrill and Mike.”
CBS Radio Philadelphia SVP/Market Manager Marc Rayfield added, “The Eagles are the most identifiable and beloved brand in the Delaware Valley. Listening to Merrill and Mike calling the games on WIP has become a multi-generational tradition. WIP is proud to continue our long standing partnership and is committed to offering our listeners the absolute best in compelling, local content.”
