That’s probably the last way Ray Didinger would like to be described – Philly Sports Media Field of 64 winner – but for our purposes, it works.
WIP and CBS Philly announced yesterday that Didinger’s role on the station will increase. His Saturday show with Glen Macnow will be expanded to include a Sunday edition and Didinger will spend more time on the air throughout the year. From the release, which, weirdly, wasn’t initially sent to the most-read sports blog in the city:
SportsRadio 94WIP has reached a new agreement with Veteran Broadcaster and Pro Football Hall of Fame writer Ray Didinger, it was announced today by Marc Rayfield, Senior Vice President and Market Manager, CBS RADIO Philadelphia. Didinger has signed a multi-year deal which will expand his role on WIP and will include work on Talk Radio 1210 WPHT and KYW Newsradio.
The highly popular Ray Didinger and Glen Macnow show that has been heard on Saturday (10 am – 1 pm) will be expanded to include a Sunday edition heard on air and on line at www.cbsphilly.com or through the radio.com app on mobile devices. He will make more frequent appearances on WIP throughout the year. Didinger will also be heard with Chris Stigall on Fridays during the football season and he will be doing commentary on KYW Newsradio and on www.cbsphilly.com.
Good stuff. Honestly, and maybe this is something Didinger wouldn’t even want, but him and Macnow should have a weekday show.
