Entercom CEO David Field has been on quite the roll lately. After officially taking over CBS Radio last week and announcing a few immediate changes and additions, Field continued the momentum by announcing Tuesday morning on Angelo Cataldi’s show that Entercom has struck a new seven-year extension with the Philadelphia Eagles to remain on Sports Radio 94 WIP.
Eagles president Don Smolenski and Entercom’s President of Sports Mike Dee joined Field in studio for the announcement.
As part of the agreement, the voice of the Eagles, Merrill Reese, color commentator Mike Quick and sideline reporter Howard Eskin will continue in their current roles on Eagles broadcasts.
“There’s tremendous history between the Eagles and this radio station and Philadelphia,” said Smolenski. “This takes the relationship to more than 3 years, which runs the entire gamut of Jeffrey Lurie’s ownership.”
