Radio Rumblings: Might John Kincade Return to Philly?

Screen Shot 2013-05-28 at 1.38.33 PMWhen Atlanta sports talk radio host and Philly-native John Kincade left ESPN Radio in December to go to CBS, where he currently hosts a nationally syndicated show on the CBS Sports Radio Network (which includes WIP) in addition to his show on Atlanta’s 680 The Fan, a few industry folks told me that they thought Kincade was trying to align himself with CBS so he could eventually make a transition back to WIP, where his career started. I’ve also heard that there may be some interest on the part of The Fanatic and WIP to bring Kincade back to Philly.

Today, Kincade reached out to me about being a guest on his CBS show this Sunday for a segment that focuses on new media in sports (Sunday morning around 9 a.m.– can be heard on WIP). So I figured I’d ask him about what I’ve been hearing. He was happy to take my questions, and while he wouldn’t confirm that there was any interest on his part, or from the local stations, to return to Philly… he didn’t exactly refute my assertion that it would be a good fit for him when his contract is up in Atlanta in 2014.

“Since I’m a Philly guy that does national radio and there’s very few Philly voices there, people have always thought I would go home at one point… that somewhere I would end up back in Philadelphia,” he told me. “It’s flattering and I stay closely in touch with Philly community, but the timing has never been right.”

That’s hardly a denial of what I was hearing.

Kincade was mostly “honored” that his name seems to come up so often, and he gushed about Philly, but he also made it clear that he’s perfectly happy in Atlanta:

“I have tons of family in Philly. My mom still lives there. I’m an O’Hara and Temple guy– it’s my hometown. I’m flattered that my name comes up. Every time my contract runs out, my name always comes up. I have a great situation in Atlanta, but I would be lying to you if I didn’t say that the thought of [returning to Philly] has always intrigued me.”

“I have lots of friends working at both stations. I’m familiar with both program directors and much of the on-air talent. But I’ve been on the air in Atlanta since 1995. I have a great situation here, so I feel very blessed. Not many people get to work in two great places. I’m totally honored that my national work is on WIP, where Angelo first put me on the air, where I was an intern for Howard Eskin. The greatest honor in my pro career is when my work gets to appear on stations in Philly where family and friends get to hear it.”

Kincade also made it clear that he wasn’t gunning for anyone’s job in Philly and that he is very close with the WIP Morning Show folks, who frequently have him on as a guest.

My take? The industry folks I spoke with were on to something. Kincade didn’t seem to mind talking about how much he loves it here and admitted that he was intrigued by the possibility of coming back. It might take a lot (of money) to get him, but I wouldn’t be shocked if there was a new big-name radio host in Philly next year.

  1. I agree with Jason, Angelo will probally retire in December and Jan 2014, bring this ASSHAT to town because he kisses everyone`s ass on that show and he`close to Angelo and since Angelo`s health crisis last year i really think he wants to retire, Please take Gargano with you too.

  2. Kincade>Missanelli

    If WIP lands Kincade they will likely move him up against Mikey Miss & WIP will win the ratings war again. Then they’ll move Gargano to the morning show w/ Rhea, Al, etc staying on. Missanelli is regressing & sounds more & more like Eskin every day.

    The fanatic is slipping lately – they don’t use Bruno/Mayes enough. They should be on during Marks/Brace time as well. Marks is good (not chemistry-wise with Bruno or Mayes though), but they’re doing him a disservice by pairing him with that tool Sean Brace. Sean Brace’s sports knowledge is no better than the average joe who watches sports center every morning. Marks should be on talking baseball with Dutch & the old Tom Byrne time slot.

    Letting Byrne go was a mistake as well.

    1. WIP is a mess! Angelo is old. Rhea sucks (Bet she doesn’t at home) Cuz’s gimmick is old as well. Skippy & Lippy are just OK. Mike Missanelli rules!

    2. You have a problem with Mike Miss and you think Jon Marks is good? ridiculous. There’s plenty of bruno/mayes already, if not too much. Albeit, they’re on for only two hours a day. Only thing i agree with here is Tom Byrne. Regardless of anything else, he brought the knowledge.

      Jon Marks average analysis: “(insert player here) sucks. Actually, he’s a great player. hof worthy. Alright, he’s just ok.”

  3. Marks and Brace are absolutely terrible. Why aren’t Bruno and Mayes on from 10-2, or at least 12-2 when most people tune in on their lunch breaks?

  4. Brace wasn’t too bad when he was working on the MIkey Miss show. But since he has gotten to be a big shot he is down right annoying and the dribble he spits is irrelevant. Marks is ehh… Take or leave him.

    I second the Bruno and Mayes 10-2 or 12-2. Definitely more entertaining.

  5. Id also agree with the Bruno and Mayes being the best thing they have goin…move them 10-2 and put Marks/Brace on later in the night

  6. The post about Missanelli turning into Eskin was right on the money. Anybody that doesn’t agree with something he says is automatically mocked now.
    As far as Kincade? Don’t care what station he goes too. Take Cataldi, Bruno or Brace & ship them all out. Let him take over any of their shows for all I care. Brace especially; that tool is just unlistenable.

  7. I would listen to him on any station but hope that he would come back to WIP. I also wish that 610 would carry the entire Sunday show.

  8. Its such as you read my thoughts! You seem to grasp so much approximately this,
    such as you wrote the book in it or something. I believe that you just could
    do with a few percent to drive the message house a
    little bit, but other than that, this is great blog. A great read.
    I will definitely be back.

  9. Hell Yeah Bring on Kincade.

    This town needs a fresh voice in the worst way.

    Can’t take too much more of “As the Gargano’s Turn”.

  10. I’ve been back here since 2004. I don’t know who Kincade is. I’ve never heard of him. Not happy with Fanatic running Baldinger off the station. He might not have known all the sports well but he did a great job breaking down Eagles games. He does know the league. Missanelli has turned into a preening schmoe.Isn’t that what he called Brian Billick. He is basically whoring himself out to any show where can make a buck. Phillies Postgame, Sunday Night late sports show on WCAU with John Clark, He was doing commentary on Fox 29. Great Sports Debate. Some lame game show he has come up with. He is paid well on the Fanatic. Probably earning between $500,000 to $750,000. I doubt if he will ever get paid what Eskin made in his peak which is close to 1 million on WIP. He is now like a squirrel trying to put enough acorns away for his retirement in 2-3 years. Anybody who would give up their Sundays to do a Phillies postgame show when he could be in his home in Strathmere at the Jersey Shore is a fool. Let’s see, I could spend my time in that dump Sugarhouse Casino or sit on the beach. He’s probably making an extra $125,000 a year doing the show but come on it’s not like he’s starving. Cataldi doesn’t spend one extra minute at work than he has too but he has been making big bank for 20 years.

  11. Please, John, go back to Philly. I have never heard or met a more ignorant, sanctimonious, miserable human being in my life. Good god, I feel so sorry for your child and wife. Hard to imagine how awful it must be to live with such a prig. Please, buy a sense of humor or at least an understanding of one. You’re a guy who can truly say “I have no friends.” What a way to waste your time on this earth.
