Eagles Ink Contract Extension with WIP, Will Broadcast Merrill Reese in HD

Jim Adair - March 31, 2015

This offseason, the Eagles aren’t just signing formerly injured cast-offs and 30-year-old slot receivers. They’re extending 72-year-olds.

According to Jeff Blumenthal of Philadelphia Business Journal, the Eagles have inked an extension of unknown length (and unknown financials) with CBS Radio, which is hardly a surprise. The deal is a multi-year one:

The agreement calls for all Eagles pre-season, regular season and post-season games to continue airing on WIP and includes new elements such as an HD Radio station devoted exclusively to the Eagles 24/7 with year-round programming. CBS Radio’s Philadelphia stations have aired the games since 1992. Games will air on WIP and the 11 station Eagles Radio Network across the region.

If you’ve got HD radio (does anyone have HD radio unless it came by default in their car? what is HD radio?) you’ll be able to hear every Merrill Reese call and every Mike Quick … observation … as if though they were in the car with you. But having Mike Quick in your car sounds terrible.

Kyle: Almost non-news, but it’s good for WIP. Expect the Flyers to stick with 97.5 for some time, however. Ed Snider was none to happy when WIP bumped the Flyers to AM in favor of the Phillies after that deal was signed a few years ago. Nobody puts Eddie on the AM.

Sounds quite a bit better than my screaming, though no less loud.

I would have gone with a more understated reading– a fireside chat, if you will. But this works. Video after the jump. Continue Reading
