SportsRadio 94WIP in Philadelphia has made a change in middays. The station announced today that the team of Joe DeCamara and Jon Ritchie would take over weekdays from 10a-2p starting Monday October 24th. They replace Michael Barkann and Ike Reese. WIP has confirmed that Ike Reese will be part of the new afternoon show. Barkann will not. An announcement is expected in the next few weeks.
“We are thrilled to add this new show featuring Joe and Jon,” said David Yadgaroff, Senior Vice President and Market Manager, CBS Radio Philadelphia. “As a player, Jon Ritchie embodied the hard-working nature of our fine city. As a host, he will connect with the fans and share their passion for our local teams. Joe has proven himself to be a strong voice for the Philadelphia fans. We are excited to have them.”
DeCamara, who recently departed 97.5 The Fanatic where he had spent the past decade said, “I’m extremely excited to join WIP and CBS Radio. With Jon’s background as an Eagles’ player and talk show host paired with my on-air experience and passion for the Philadelphia sports teams from as far back as I can remember, we’ll provide an entertaining show while connecting with the audience. I look forward to Monday morning when Jon and I can get started.”
Ritchie, the former NFL fullback who’s made the shift into media after his playing career added, “WIP defines sports radio to me, and Philadelphia defines passion. I’m foaming at the mouth because this is a gigantic opportunity to drop truth-bombs on a savvy fan base who appreciates brutal honesty.”
