WIP press release:
CBS RADIO Philadelphia’s SportsRadio 94WIP announced today that Jon Marks will begin co-hosting afternoons 2:00 to 6:00 PM alongside Ike Reese effective Thursday, November 16, 2017. Marks is currently the station’s evening host, 6:00 to 10:00 PM, a role he’s held since February 2017. Additionally, Joe Giglio will host evenings from 6:00 to 10:00 PM and anchor week-day Phillies pre-game and post-game coverage. Giglio has hosted every daypart on WIP, most often at night and on the weekends.
“I’m really excited to be part of the station I grew up listening to,” said Marks. “I’m thrilled to be able to work alongside Ike Reese, a guy I admired on the football field and have such respect for as a radio host. What a great time to get started as the Eagles and Carson Wentz have their eyes on the Super Bowl.”
No real surprise here. My guess is WIP was left scrambling to fill the role mid-football season, and Marks made the most sense.
He will replace Chris Carlin, who is going back to New York and WFAN to co-host their Afternoon show in December.
Somehow, Ike Reese keeps his role as a prominent host in a major sports market. THERE’S A BAND:
