Anthony Gargano and Jon Marks will co-host a morning show on 97.5 The Fanatic, with little-known Maureen Williams (whom I’m told used to work under WIP Operations Manager Andy Bloom) doing updates, multiple sources tell me. The show is tentatively scheduled to begin next Monday, April 20, but that’s not confirmed. Jamie Lynch, Gargano’s Afternoon producer at WIP – better known as Silent Bro – will be going over to 97.5 as well.
What does a morning show, in place of Mike and Mike, mean for 97.5’s ESPN affiliation? No idea. I’d expect we’ll learn more when an announcement is made and over the next few weeks. But for the first time ever(?), WIP’s Morning Show will have local competition. Let the RADIO WARS rage on. NEED THE MAESTRO IN THE MORNINGS:
