If you’ve flipped on Mike Missanelli’s show this week, you’ve noticed a new voice in the third chair.
That’s Devan Kaney, who hosted on Monday and Tuesday and says she’s also going to be filling in on Wednesday as well. It would seem as though 97.5 the Fanatic is going with the committee approach until Natalie Egenolf’s replacement is brought in:

You’re familiar with Devan if you’re a lacrosse fan. She’s the Wings’ sideline reporter and doubles as a host and senior producer for the National Lacrosse League, which is headquartered
here in Conshohocken (edit – they moved into Philadelphia recently). The NLL had a rough time with COVID and had to suspend play for a lengthy amount of time due to the fact that five of the 15 franchises are located in Canada and had trouble with the same pandemic restrictions that affected the Blue Jays, Raptors, and the NHL and MLS teams.
The Fanatic has had different folks fill in since Egenolf departed. Jennifer Scordo of 92.5 XTU has stepped in to do updates while other 97.5 employees have rotated in as well. No word on when they’re going to make a permanent hire and fill the vacancy on Mike’s show.
