Phillies Sign New Radio Deal, Making WIP Their New Home

The Philadelphia Phillies have announced an extension of their radio broadcast partnership with CBS Radio, and there’s one big change in the new agreement. Going forward, Sports Radio 94 WIP will be positioned as the team’s new radio home.

Financial terms and information about games carried on 1210 WPHT (the team’s former AM radio home) were not disclosed, but the new deal calls for live play-by-play coverage of Phillies spring training, regular season and post-season games. WIP will also host regular shows from the NovaCare Broadcast Booth, a radio studio built on the concourse within Citizens Bank Park.

The Phillies broadcast team of Scott Franzke, Larry Andersen and Jim Jackson are also returning.

WIP signed a new deal with the Eagles in March 2015, and with the Phillies now becoming a bigger fixture on their airwaves, they’ve helped themselves in the local play-by-play department.
