If you turned on NBC Sports Philadelphia at 4:30 p.m. today, you got a program called “Inside Golf,” a “weekly magazine-style show that spotlights various public and private golf clubs.” I watched a few minutes of it before flipping over to channel 69 News at 4:00.
But if you turn on NBC Sports Philadelphia at the same time slot next week, you’ll get the debut simulcast of “The Mike Missanelli Show.” We learned about this when a press release went out in December, but didn’t have a start date. That date is April 16th.
The show will air from 2 to 5 p.m. weekdays on NBCSP and will stream online as well. Philly Sports Talk will continue to air at 5.p.m., followed by Quick Slants at 6.
The show is exactly what it sounds like – Mike’s afternoon show with a bunch of cameras installed in the 97.5 the Fanatic studios. He’ll be joined by update anchor Natalie Egenolf and producer Tyrone Johnson, whose roles, I assume, won’t change.
The other thing that won’t change is the 5 p.m. hour, so when NBC flips to Mike Barkann and his blue glasses, Missanelli’s show will continue on the radio until 6 p.m., which includes the “Sound Off” segment.
