Condolences to CBS RADIO WIP-A/PHILADELPHIA morning man ANGELO CATALDI on the death of his father-in-law, ADOLPH AUTENRIETH, who passed away SUNDAY in MOUNT LAUREL, NJ of heart failure at 86.
AUTENRIETH gained notoriety at WIP when he was injured by a float at the station's WING BOWL 12 but stayed in place with a bandaged hand to watch the rest of the wing-eating event. Daughter GAIL CATALDI told the PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER, "My father went to all WIP events -- WING BOWL, MISS WIP, EAGLES pregame shows. When we first started dating, ANGELO had an on-air topic of 'What is the worst thing that your child could tell you?' My father, whom ANGELO did not know at the time, called and said the worst thing is that his daughter is dating ANGELO CATALDI. That was my dad."
