RADIO WARS: Anthony Gargano Is Not On The Air Again Today

Anthony Gargano is absent from the 97.5 morning show today. It’s the second day in a row he hasn’t been on the air after his compadre, Maureen Williams, was let go by the station. Williams had come to 97.5 along with Gargano as part of what some refer to as a “package deal.”

Eytan Shander, Geoff Mosher and Joe Tordy are co-hosting the show today.

In the AMA yesterday, someone asked me how long Gargano’s contract is. I guessed three years, but perhaps a more accurate way to word it would be to say that some radio contracts are two years, with a station option for a third. It is believed that Gargano has a similar type of deal. And Gargano, whose show debuted on April 20, 2015, is coming up on two years at the station.

The show more or less gets similar ratings to what Mike and Mike, ESPN’s national show, had before it on 97.5, but it has struggled to pose any real threat to Angelo Cataldi and the WIP morning team.

Last year, Greater Media, 97.5’s parent company, was sold to Beasley, a public company that owns many stations across the country. Their stock has more than tripled over the last year, largely as a result of the purchase, which was completed on November 1. They posted record fiscal fourth quarter earnings on March 21, leading to yet another spike in their stock. There doesn’t seem to be any indication that there are financial concerns, as Beasley has talked about backing its core local programming.

Jon Marks, who was part of the original crew along with Gargano, MCW and Jamie Lynch, left the show last year and is now at WIP. Gargano and Lynch are the only two who remain (Lynch is on vacation this week, avoiding the fray). But Gargano has now missed two days of work on the heels of Williams’ departure.

The waters appear to be choppy. Is a storm coming? DRUMS RUMBLING:

      Thanks for the article, but, it really provided no insight on what is happening. You basically just told us Anthony was not on the show today, which we all could figure out by turning on the radio.

      See, the key to this blogging/reporting/journalism thing is this – provide us with a story or perhaps insight that the average guy cannot obtain.
      Once you gather that information report it to inform your audience.

      Providing us information on stocks is not what we are looking for.

    I wouldn’t cry if it went away, but I like local better than Mike & Mike and I cannot listen to Angelo’a parade of idiots.

    I wonder if they try to replace MCW. It wouldn’t work, Anthony would just freeze him/her out like they did to Marks. They never let him mix in the show.

But they have experience together and it will flow unlike his shows with Shander. And the fact they aren’t destroying the Mono-tone duo of Decamera and Ritchie shows you how well a show with Lil Robbie driving does. The shame is Mayes will be paired with another bad co host

    Personally, being from South Philly, Anthony bring me nothing but shame about where I grew up. The “cuz bo” bullshit is never-ending and it is SO funny when someone who is a national figure comes on the show and he straightens up his vocab and tries to legitimatize himself as he talks about his writing background.

    I honestly gave the morning show a good year and I can’t stand it now. The endless Baldy/Wentz wang-sucking, the “meat locker” macho droning seriously forces me to not turn the to 97.5 until after 2 PM. I think there are people like me who want to listen to local sports morning show,, but have no choice on the dial. Cataldi’s upcoming retirement seems like it has been a decade in the making, while Captain Fila Gargano and his merry dopes breakdown what Carson Wentz ate for breakfast last Wed. Overall, Anthony’s show is tired and its only 2 years old!! How is that possible!

    I hope the Crossing Broad podcast can seize this opportunity.

      The show started strong, but as Anthony usually does, he defaults back into his boring radio. MCW was not the problem. Gargano was and is…marks should have been resigned and given the show when garganos contract was up this month. Dumb move to allow him to walk. Adding Baldy more than one day a week was another mistake. He’s arrogant and doesn’t think the fans can ever know more than him. The moment football season ended he should have been let go.

    Gargano is the only one who is going to miss Maureen, she brought nothing to the show. Even with the revolving lineup, I would much rather listen to Gargano than that tired WIP Morning show. That being said, Gargano needs to be partnered with someone to balance him out, someone who can lighten up the show a bit. Marks used to do that for the show when he got a chance to speak. Eytan serves that role sometimes. I like Baldy’s football knowledge but I can only take him in small doses, a couple days a week at most.

    • Yo bo, I know Spags and Baldy ! April 12, 2017 at 7:04 pm

      I went from Angelo (for years) to Gargano for a while because Cataldi annoys the hell out of me, but Ant’s show has gotten so bad that I made the switch back. When Jonesy is on WIP I am locked in. Morganti is what he is and I actually get akick out of him ocassionally. Rhea doesn’t bother me like she used to. The only time I immediately turn off WIP in the morning is when I hear that obese, ebonics speaking, stiuttering , chuckling moron Hollis Thomas.

I am hearing that Bruno and Mays will will be partnered up again and handle the afternoon drive for 975. Ellis will remain at 10-2 and Anton Shander will be his full time partner.

    I wasn’t a fan of the show when it started- but it slowly grew on me as they developed chemistry. When Marks left, I stopped tuning in. Gargano is unlistenable on his own and his sidekicks bring nothing to the table. Realizing that maybe Marks might be good radio since he appeared to be the only reason I listened, I tried tuning into WIP on my drive home but every goddamned time, he had Eskin calling in. Never mind. Now I just hate that when I listen to the Phillies on my drive home, if I don’t change the channel before shutting off the car, I end up having to hear Caraldi’s voice first thing in the morning. Screw all this.

You would have a legitimate sports writer and someone who can talk about basketball intelligently. He would be a real asset as the draft approaches. He has filled in at the station before even doing solo shifts.

      Do you think he would do my podcast? Id have to see how well he packages shirts before I hired him though.

    Actually, this is a decent article. Even though it doesn’t contain any new information, it provides the reader with a good summary of the history of the show.

    Kyle, would you ever consider taking on a spot on sports radio? I’m sure you’d do a lot better than many of the folks who are on the air now.

  • Serious Question April 12, 2017 at 11:09 am

    Is Sludge gone from WIP? When Marks took over it was said that Sludge was going to be doing production work, but this morning Morganti made a reference to Sludge in the past tense as if he left the station.

    • He might be gone April 12, 2017 at 1:05 pm

      But they still use his stupid sound drops. Weekends were made for Glen and Ray and What are we watching. I can’t stand Sludge and if he’s gone I’m thrilled. If only on EyeTan on the other station suffered the same fate.

  • Did you boo Evan Martinez on the Jumbotron the other night April 12, 2017 at 1:11 pm

    If you did are you proud of yourself. Do you think the producer’s sons should be banned from the Jumbotron. Should Evan get a participation trophy for being on the Jumbotron. Did his father give him milk and cookies when he came home as a reward for entertaining the five people that actually wasted their time to see an uncoordinated little muppet dance for the public.

    “The Dishwasher Confuses Me.” Hey guy’s I’m Brian Baldinger’s Ball Sack. Who’s gonna lick me now that The Cuz and MCW are off the air. I mean Christ Maureen was outright fired along with Jamie ‘The Bro’ Lynch. I didn’t care so much for his Salmon Colored shorts. Maybe Eytan will slide right in to the co-host position just like he slides into every other shit show on this station. I know I’m the reason this show has gone down the tubes but Friday’s with Freddie was a great idea. Wasn’t it??

    Gargano will be gone soon. And The Fanatic morning show will go will maybe Ellis & Mayes. Or the crew like today was great. I guarantee a mix up is coming.

    I was actually a fan and regular listener to Gargano on the fanatic and still am if he is there, but MCW was dry and boring as an update anchor, and contributed less than Kathy Romano does to Preston and Steve. CUZ frequently asked “right MCW” and she would answer “sure” as if she didn’t care or was even paying attention. Hire Natalie as the new update anchor and contributor. She has a personality and knows sports. Also… they should have kept Jon Marks. I’ll never listen to WIP in the morning because Angelo’s voice makes my ears bleed, but he’ll be retiring soon.

      Honestly what do you like about Gargano? His over the top I’m from Philly shtick? How he name drops his buddies all the time? How about how he thinks he’s some football expert because he knows a sub par D Coordinator?

Throw a temper tantrum because the chick you cheated on your wife for couldn’t improve her job performance after 2 years. A job she was no where near qualified for. Any of you Cuz fans should see what kind of person he is. He sells out everyone around him when he doesn’t get his way. Fuck him. I hope he never shows

      I don’t think it was his choice. I’m sure he went in the gms office and threw some papers on the floor after his slampiece got fired, so he got suspended.

Anyone that has a radio knew that. Why would your average reader give a fuck about Beasley stock? Do better, bro. SMH. Seriously.

    Anthony Gargano should have known the deck was stacked against him when he signed on for the morning slot that has been DOMINATED by Angelo Cataldi and his Morning Team at WIP. The thing about all this is…if Beasley Broadcasting DOES decide to let Gargano go,where does he go?….back to WIP?….Fox Sports Radio where he used to fill in at?….and what does The Fanatic do after that?…put Mike and Mike back on?…..remember Mike Greenberg is supposedly leaving the morning slot to do other things at ESPN(BTW is a STUPID move on ESPN’s part)and a lesser known replacement for Greenberg will pull the ratings down even more.
