WIP 610-AM mid-day co-host Steve Martorano will be parting ways with the station for the second time in four years, as his contract will not be renewed.
Martorano co-hosted mid-days with Anthony Gargano until he was replaced by Mike Missanelli. When Missanelli was removed from the station a few months later after an altercation with a producer, Martorano was brought back two years ago.
Coincidentally, Missanelli signed with Philadelphia’s other sports talk station, ESPN 950-AM this week.
No word on who will replace Martorano, but it wouldn’t hurt WIP to go younger. Their weekday hosts Angelo Cataldi, Al Morganti, Howard Eskin, and Glen Macnow are all in their mid-50′s, and their “young” hosts Rhea Hughes and Anthony Gargano are pushing 40.
