RADIO WARS: Josh Innes Launches Test Missile Into The Sea of Gargano

Kyle Scott - April 19, 2017

Never question the maestro’s ability to unearth discord. Josh Innes asked me if he could come on our upcoming podcast, Crossing Broadcast, to discuss his new podcast, Live From Josh’s Couch. And so, Adam Lefkoe, Russell Joy and I spoke to him last night as part of an interview that will run during the first few weeks of the show, and of course we asked him about the current Philly sports talk radio landscape. Innes, like Henry Kissinger weighing in on Iraq, located his old war drum and knocked out a few beats. Here’s a sample of what you can expect:

“I always thought Gargano was a piece of shit. And he is a piece of shit. And I guess because I replaced him, all these meathead, blowhard, South Philly people that buy his cuz shtick didn’t like me and thought it was my fault the guy got fired. But they didn’t know that he’s the reason that Glen Macnow got run off. That was him. I think he handpicked [Rob] Ellis to be his guy so he could beat the shit out of him. Notice that Jon Marks left their morning show to do nights at WIP. So the Cuz to me was always really fucking fake.”

We also played Marry, Kill, Co-Host (Anthony Gargano, Mike Missanelli, Spike Eskin) with Josh, but you’ll have to listen to the clip for that part.

You can hear the rest of the interview when Crossing Broadcast debuts next week. And you can listen to Innes’ podcast, where he talks about all things Philly, at JoshInnesShow.com.

        As long as Josh Innes keeps exposing that fake South Philly tough guy pos Anthony Gargano as the fraud he truly is, then that makes Josh Innes ok in my book

    The guy kept sports radio interesting. He came in 2013, that start of all teams sucking reallllllllly bad at the same time. He left and it’s boring again. Nothing worse than NFL draft talk in January.

    I was a Innes hater during his time in philly. Can’t believe I’m saying this now but the guy is spot on about the Cuz. The shenanigans he pulled last week solidifies he is a real POS.

    Looking forward to the podcast, Kyle.

    Innes is apparently still steamed by his firing and can’t let go. Who cares what he thinks? Most people here know Gargano is a bs artist but don’t stay up at night worrying about it. He is in Houston now; let it go.

  • 97.5 sucks April 19, 2017 at 10:24 am

    Leave it to a show hosted by Rob Ellis to relate Aaron Hernandez to drafting Joe Mixon today. By the way this is probably the 20th show asking that same question. And people wonder why Innes had a following. He wasn’t the best but at least he changed it up a little bit. He didn’t talk about the same thing for months

    Reply
    • Rob Ellis & Harry Mayes April 19, 2017 at 10:52 am

      What should we talk about today? Let’s rehash the Joe Mixon discussion even though we already did several shows on it and everyone knows our “hot takes”. Oh, and lets create a poll too.

    Why can’t this fat slob and his Hitler youth looking hoe go away? He failed here because he got exposed for being the kidd chris clone that he was. People who listen at night are creeps like a majority of CB commenters and are th eonly ones who still want that fat buffoon here. Kyle is hanging onto to Radio Wars so bad even when there is nothing left to fight over after the CLEAR DEATH of 94.1 at the hands of Mikey Miss.Kyle couldn’t even keep Jim on the payroll because his out of date Villanova degree fell out of touch with the market thinking clicks still drive revenue! CB is trying hard as hell to hold on but it’s over just like Josh Innes’s career in a top 5 market. He wants back here which is why he wanted to go on your podcast but it will never happen.

    Side note: ROB ELLIS and GLEN MACNOW are total scum bags and both 97.5 and 94.1 could make more money replaying anything syndicated rather than this muck on the radio. I rather listen to that degenerate gambling show on Saturday mornings than Rob Ellis or Gargano.

    Regardless of whether Gargano is or is not a piece of shit, if Innis was any good he would still be on the air. Gargano didn’t get him fired. Yet that’s the best he can come up with. Why you gave him the time of day is another example of why you are a worthless source of information.
