The Ultimate List of 75 Possible Replacements for Angelo Cataldi on the WIP Morning Show

from Twitter

Big Philadelphia radio news this morning. Angelo Cataldi announced that he will be retiring in December of 2022. That means we only have to suffer one more year of fake outrage before the WIP morning show exits the Bronze Age and joins the rest of us in modernity.

There’s always the chance that Angelo changes his mind about retirement for the umpteenth time, but if he does follow through to call it quits, WIP is going to have to find a replacement, a task that will fall on new “Brand Manager” Rod Lakin and local boss David Yadgaroff. They’re gonna have to make sure they get it right, because Angelo RAKED money for Audacy over the years as a ratings behemoth, just dominating the archaic Nielsen PPM system. I remember when somebody told me Angelo came in second place in the morning “with 15 meters,” which is fantastic.

Anyway, we’ve decided to help WIP. We’ve come up with a list of 75 possible replacements for Angelo:

  1. Marc Farzetta

  4. Butch from Manayunk

  9. Steven Singer

  11. Howard “The King” Eskin

  15. the guy who captured the alligator in the trash can
  16. a different “wingette” every day until they run out of wingettes
  17. Ben Simmons
