WFAN, WIP To Simulcast Show Previewing Giants-Eagles Game
January 8, 2009 at 11:25 AM (PT)
With the GIANTS and EAGLES set to play in SUNDAY's NFC divisional playoff game, sister CBS RADIO Sports stations WFAN-A/NEW YORK and WIP-A/PHILADELPHIA will get together FRIDAY (1/9) for a live simulcast pitting WFAN's middayers JOE BENIGNO and EVAN ROBERTS plus GIANTS radio analyst and former player CARL BANKS against WIP middayers ANTHONY GARGANO and GLEN MACNOW and evening host and former EAGLES player IKE REESE. The show will air live 10am-1pm from the BORDENTOWN, NJ location of PHILADELPHIA-based sports bar chain CHICKIE'S AND PETE'S, midway between NEW YORK and PHILADELPHIA.
"I couldn’t be more pumped up for this," said BENIGNO. "It’s going to be a stellar show. What’s better than rolling into EAGLE country with 'The Killer,' CARL BANKS and his two GIANTS Super Bowl rings?"
"This is a true rivalry. For years the teams and cities have battled for NFC East supremacy. PHILADELPHIA is the city of champions and this is the year that EAGLES prove they are the beast of the East!" countered REESE.
The game will air on both stations SUNDAY at 1p ET.
