Mike Missanelli hinted that Barkann was turned down for an on-air spot at 97.5. This was in response to, as best as I can tell, the following dig from Barkann, which he took while discussing sports fan rankings with Ike Reese in-between Reese’s bouts of snarling on WIP today (5:10 mark of Fan Rankings segment):
“We were fourth, until someone tweeted Victor Cruz is over. There’s no accounting for taste and class, and that’s what happens. We might have even been third for all I know. Someone tweets that, and it’s on the front page of the Daily News. I mean, come on. That’s just unkind, evil and moronic.”
Missanelli and Barkann are two of the biggest names in Philly sports. This is like two giant stars coming too close. Eventually, their gravitational pulls are going to fling them into each other, igniting a giant inerstellar explosion between CBS (WIP) and Greater Media (97.5) that is going to make for the greatest RADIO WARS of all-time. Some might even call that… a STAR WARS. Thanks, I’m here all week.
