I didn’t know who Trysta Krick was until Coggin brought this to my attention. Apparently she’s a former Barstool podcaster who ran a show called This League, which I’m told was not very popular. I’ll listen to an episode later today, but a quick glance at Apple Podcasts reveals a 2.1 rating out of five possible stars.
Krick went on Twitter and announced her departure, but she names 94 WIP as one of several new destinations:

“I will be on WIP in Philly… shout out to Philly for making my career take the next step.. because of you Philly fans, without your rage, none of this would be possible.”
Apparently she said a bunch of dumb shit about Ben Simmons during the playoffs. As did most people. Take a number and wait in line.
I’ll send out a few text messages and see if I can figure out where they’re gonna put Ms. Krick, or how they plan to use her. If she drops stupid takes just for attention, I can think of a few time slots that will work perfectly for her. Monday to Friday from 6 a.m. to 10 a.m. comes to mind.
A Crossing Broad reader summed up Krick this way:
“Dude her takes were all anti-Sixers and like bad, bad basketball takes. WIP knows what they are doing. She’s Eliot Shorr-Parks on a national level.”
Krick wrote an introductory post at Audacy and it seems like her appearances on WIP will amount to occasional guest jawns? That what it seems like:
What will I be doing for Audacy?
I will be hosting BetMGM Tonight, every Monday through Friday from 7pm-11pm EST.
I’ll also be spending weekends on WFAN in NYC. On top of that, I’ll be popping on to WEEI in Boston, 670 The Score in Chicago, WIP in Philly, WSSP in Milwaukee and more.
