RADIO WARS: John Kincade is the New Morning Host at 97.5 the Fanatic

Where there is smoke, there is fire, and officially now John Kincade is the new morning host at 97.5 the Fanatic.

Here’s part of the blurb from the Fanatic website:

“Beasley Media Group announces John Kincade has been named as the new Morning Host at 97.5 The Fanatic in Philadelphia. The John Kincade Show will officially begin on Monday, January 4, 2021.

“We have a very clear vision for what we want to accomplish at the station and adding John Kincade is a giant leap towards accomplishing those goals,” said station Program Director Chuck Damico. “Our team is thrilled that he chose 97.5 The Fanatic for his homecoming to Philadelphia. We’re excited about the future!”

“It is with immense honor and pleasure that I’ve been given the opportunity to return home to Philadelphia thanks to Beasley Media Group and the leadership of 97.5 The Fanatic” said Kincade.

From the beginning of my search for a new radio home, my conversations with Joe Bell and Chuck Damico were the most enthusiastic and interesting. It became clear to me that joining the team at The Fanatic was the best place for me to start this next chapter. With guys I have long respected like Mike Missanelli and Anthony Gargano already there, I knew it would be an honor to join their team.”’

I don’t have much more to add since I just wrote about this Wednesday evening. What I am hearing is that Bob Cooney and Jamie Lynch are safe and that they will be a part of John’s show.

It’s bears repeating what I wrote previously; John’s approach is different. His Atlanta show was not reliant on listener phone calls and you did not have the same jabronies calling up every single day, jabronies like Butch from Manayunk and Andy from Deptford. There will be more from the hosts, more from guests, and the content will be less reliant on phone calls.

Interesting times, for sure. Kincade is going up against one of his mentors in Angelo Cataldi, who is a broadcasting BEHEMOTH and has soundly dispatched all previous challengers for the throne.
