Pump the brakes on Angelo Cataldi’s retirement. The successful morning host on Sports Radio 94WIP in Philadelphia isn’t going anywhere just yet.
Entercom Philadelphia has announced that Cataldi has signed a new contract with the company to remain in place as the host of “Angelo Cataldi and the Morning Team,” weekdays from 5:30a-10a ET. The show includes Al Morganti, Rhea Hughes, Keith Jones and Joe Conklin. Morganti and Jones recently renewed their deals with WIP.
“I’m honored to remain at WIP. For almost three decades, this has been my only home on the radio, and I have a great debt of gratitude to everyone associated with the station,” said Angelo Cataldi. “This also keeps alive my dream of being at WIP when the Eagles win a Super Bowl. Go, Eagles. And go, WIP.”
“We’re proud to continue our relationship with Angelo Cataldi, who for decades has been the voice of Philadelphia sports fans,” said David Yadgaroff, Entercom Philadelphia’s Senior Vice President and Market Manager. “Throughout our city’s sports ups and downs, Angelo has stood beside millions of Philly fans and we’re so happy he’ll continue doing it on 94WIP, Philadelphia’s number one sports talk radio station.”
Cataldi has been one of the most influential personalities in Philadelphia sports media. He has anchored the morning show on WIP since 1990, consistently ranking among the top-rated radio programs in Philadelphia. In addition to offering strong opinions on the city’s sports teams and personalities, Cataldi has led the charge for a number of extravagant stunts and events, including one of sports radio’s crown jewel promotions, WIP’s annual Wing Bowl, which recently celebrated its 25th anniversary.
