In an interview with PHILADELPHIA MAGAZINE's VICTOR FIORILLO, longtime CBS RADIO Sports WIP/PHILADELPHIA morning host ANGELO CATALDI said that he is once again considering retirement.
CATALDI, the former PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER sportswriter who has been in mornings at the station since 1989, when he co-hosted (then on AM) with the late TOM BROOKSHIER, and has publicly entertained thoughts of retirement at contract time in the past, was interviewed for the magazine's monthly "One of Us" page in the back of the magazine; Asked to complete the phrase "My contract expires...," CATALDI added, "at the end of next year. I think that will be the end of the run, and I will walk away really happy."
"The worst thing is getting up at two every morning. That grinds on you after 26 years."
He also completed the thought "My doctor says I..." with "should have quit 10 years ago. The pressure you feel every day — and my voice is not what it used to be. I’m getting beat up." And as for "The best thing about my job is...." CATALDI said, "the money -- more than I ever thought I would make. The worst thing is getting up at two every morning. That grinds on you after 26 years."
