Contrary to published reports, sports industry sources are saying that it is not a given that Glen Macnow will join Anthony Gargano on the WIP mid-day show to replace Steve Martorano, whose last day was Tuesday.
Sources say that WIP is considering a few different scenarios, including bringing in a personality from outside the station for a weekday slot.
Next week, the station will team Gargano with Howard Eskin for afternoon drive beginning Tuesday (on Monday WIP will air the Phillies’ season opener).
Gargano and Eskin will compete against former WIP host Mike Missanelli who debuts on ESPN 950 on Tuesday. Another former WIP host, Jody McDonald moves to the 9 a.m. – 1 p.m. slot on ESPN 950.
Job opportunities at WIP are rare as the weekday lineup has basically been Angelo Cataldi, Rhea Hughes, Al Morganti, Glen Macnow, Mike Missanelli, Steve Fredericks, Jody McDonald, Anthony Gargano, and Howard Eskin in various configurations through the years.
