RADIO WARS: Mike Missanelli Addresses Dwayne From Swedesboro, Calls Me An Ambulance Chaser

Mike Missanelli off the top today on what he dubbed Dwaynegate:

Audio 97.5 The Fanatic

“Today we will deem DwayneGate. Since this story has taken over the world. And thanks to the intrepid hardcore bastions of hard-hitting journalism reporters at Crossing Broad, cracking the big case as if they discovered the Lindbergh Baby, and where the Lindbergh Baby was kidnapped, comes up with the story that Dwayne from Swedesboro was actually not Dwayne from Swedesboro, that he was a voice from our own producer here at 97.5 The Fanatic named Pat Egan. Now, I don’t really quite know what the story is that is so important that it is a major story for all the blogs. It got to Deadspin somehow, and Philly Mag dot com, and Philly dot com, and all that. But here’s what I will say. I didn’t know that Dwayne from Swedesboro was not a real person. There may be people here that knew all along that he wasn’t a real person. I did not know, because I don’t know who are real persons that call us or not…I don’t really know them on a personal level…Dwayne from Swedesboro, we’ve occassionally asked the question if he was real or not, having never met him. Now I was told that he was at the station once…so I assumed he was a real person. Now, I don’t really know what the story is, and I hope that people will tell us what thw story is…Let’s face it, in radio, it’s not the first time people have made up a character in radio, so I don’t get what the outrage is, unless you thought that it pushed the boundaries of racial lines. And if you thought that, and you were offended, I’m right there with you. If you are offended by Dwayne from Swedesboro and the content of his call, then I have wide open ears for you to hear your calls and to hear your complaints…I mean I really don’t understand the hubub of a fake caller that has appeared many times in radio circles. The bottom line is: Dwayne entertained many people.”

Mike opened up his show for discussion on the topic, even though he continued to downplay the notion that it was a story. Pat Egan came on briefly and explained that he used to call as Dwayne from the studio behind Mike, which was quite funny. Mike is being sympathetic to the race angle. He is calling me “Woodward and Bernstein” and “an ambulance chaser blogger,” which is funny because he’s had no problem running those lights with me when he’s emailed me tips in attempts to get me to bash (off the top of my head) Glen Macnow, Howard Eskin, John Gonzalez, Andy Bloom, Tony Bruno, Michael Barkann, Josh Innes, and, my personal favorite in light of recent events:

If you can’t read that:

“That other station is so desperate that they’ve resorted to having their minions (as few as they may be) making phony phone calls to all of our shows. Pathetic.”

Meanwhile, Glen Macnow comes over the top – publicly – as tipsters are lighting up my inbox and phone regarding fake callers in sports talk radio:

  1. Took a couple pics of the magic man's ex wife in Avalon wawa at the register in half thong bikini bottoms says:

    Is it true Jillian mele bleachers her asshole?

  2. They’re both milking this for all its worth. It’s ratings for Mike and clickbait for Kyle. WAKE UP YOU SHEEP!

    1. You should change your handle to “Brain-Damaged Hillary”. She’s the one that had the stroke in 2012, currently having seizures and falling down continually.

        1. No, I believe what Alex Jones says, backed by Drudge, the largest news aggregation website of news in the world, along with heavy-hitters like Breitbart and Daily Caller. They are the real media. Alex Jones has real reporters that go to placed on the globe and report on real stories the mainstream media doesn’t. Drudge routinely links Infowars content because there is no agenda. Only truth. No PC nonsense.

          Keep on drinking the piss of the mainstream media, though. They will tell you what’s really going on. Trust CNN and the other major networks for your information. Hahahahahaha!

  3. 97.5, like all the mainstream media in this country, has been destroyed by truth. They all lie because of their ill-fated agendas. Donald Trump 2016 baby!!!!

  4. Was this Kyle’s Red Wedding moment, where he got in all cozy with the folks at 97.5 so that he could cultivate relationships and get insider info that he then used to “off” everybody in a total blood bath? While I was annoyed by these stupid Radio Wars posts after your extreme bias towards 97.5 started to become overly obvious, if it was all a lead up to this turncoat action, then kudos to you Kyle!

    1. This is most likely the most important story Kyle has ever done. No one was surprised that Riley cooper is a racist, people are genuinely surprised by this.

  5. His callers calling in to talk about Dwayne are all repeating the same thing over and over. I think they are all fake too. There all acting like he did nothing wrong. He knew he it was fake he is full of it. Mike acts like MR. PC then his show spits out stereotypes he is so against. Being Pc IS NOT Tolerant and being tolerant is not PC.

  6. If you really want to break stories, lets get the deets on Dawkins sucking dicks at Clemson.

  7. What’s up with the cuz’s appearance lately?? Looks like he’s morphing into a D Tackle . Slob

  8. Can they please can this arrogant blowhard Myrtetus for this????

    Last week he was crying and lecturing people about Utley’s World F-ing Champs comment, meanwhile he’s behind the scenes encouraging the use racial stereotypes about black people as a “bit.” Total scumbag hypocrite.

  9. Kyle, if you have any of the tweets, you need to post them. The show continues to ignore the ‘after-hour’ antics of Egan with the tweets…if it was just a schtick, that’s one thing but he took on the alter ego persona way past ‘the entertaining phone calls’.

  10. Hey Mike, if you want the truth ask the guy in the next room. You acting like these simple answers are beyond your reach is why you’re a fraud.

  11. Kyle this is what you get for getting in bed with a narcissistic, uber liberal (only when he’s on the radio) douchebag like Mike. Mike is in it for Mike

  12. Wow…now he’s getting upset at his callers who are taking the point of it being racist and over the top, and keeps saying ‘what am I supposed to do about it’ when he should have come out at the top of the show and said flat out ‘it was wrong, it was racist, both have been suspended for X amount of time and nothing like that will ever happen again” and it would have been over. But he is adamant that they did nothing wrong and keeps playing that the ‘I’m not racist card” and thinks that’s all that needs to be done.

    The white dude on there now is calling Egan and the other guy ‘geniuses’ for doing the schtick…ridiculous!

  13. MM is so obviously such a thin-skinned control freak that it’s difficult to believe that his two sidekicks would have run this stunt without his ok, risking his wrath should he discover it.

  14. good thing you never snuck into the bedroom when your father and I were getting busy son or you would have heard alot more “fake calling” going on

  15. This leftist white guilt douche bag Missanelli deserves everything he gets. Fire his ass, again.
