Entercom inks Angelo Cataldi to a new multi-year contract extension to remain as host of the "Angelo Cataldi and the Morning Team" show on WIP-FM (SportsRadio 94WIP) Philadelphia, continuing alongside co-hosts Al Morganti, Keith Jones and Rhea Hughes from 5:30-10am. Cataldi is a 30-year market veteran and has anchored WIP's morning show since 1990. Before joining the station, Cataldi served as the Philadelphia Eagles beat writer for The Philadelphia Inquirer, where he earned two Pulitzer Prize nominations.
"Angelo Cataldi is a sports icon in the city of Philadelphia and we couldn't be more fired up that he will continue his historic run of success on 94WIP," said Entercom Philadelphia Senior VP/Market Manager David Yadgaroff. "He is the voice of the fans and has an unmatched level of passion for all things Philadelphia sports. He sets the table for 94WIP every day, and does it at a level of greatness and consistency that has never been achieved before."
"It's an honor to continue my time at WIP as I move past my 30-year anniversary at the best sports station in America," added Cataldi. "All I can do is express my appreciation to Entercom and to all of my colleagues at WIP. But most of all I want to thank the listeners who have been so loyal to me and to everyone at the morning show. I can't believe I get to do a job I love in the city whose passion for sports is incomparable. Now let's win another championship."
