GREATER MEDIA Sports WPEN-A/PHILADELPHIA inks an affiliation deal with ESPN RADIO and will relaunch as 950 ESPN on APRIL 1st. The new affiliation also means that the station will pick up ESPN's MIKE GREENBERG and MIKE GOLIC morning show; GOLIC is a former EAGLES defensive tackle who started his broadcasting career while still playing with the EAGLES.
"We are absolutely thrilled to bring ESPN RADIO, the best and biggest brand in sports to the city of PHILADELPHIA," said Station Manager BOB DEBLOIS. "MIKE AND MIKE have the #1 morning show for sports in the country; now PHILLY fans can listen every day. We look forward to them joining the new 950 ESPN team."
ESPN RADIO was previously heard in parts of the DELAWARE VALLEY on NASSAU BROADCASTING's former Sports WPHY-A/TRENTON (now Religion WCHR-A).
