TONY BRUNO is launching a local show for noon-2p ET weekdays at GREATER MEDIA Sports WPEN-A-F (97.5 THE FANATIC and 950 ESPN)/PHILADELPHIA. BRUNO's syndicated FOX SPORTS RADIO show airs on the station in evenings and will continue; the local show will be co-hosted by THE FANATIC's HARRY MAYES. A PHILADELPHIA native, BRUNO previously worked as part of crosstown Sports rival WIP-A's morning show before stints at ESPN RADIO, FOX SPORTS RADIO, and SPORTING NEWS RADIO. He started his career at WFIL-A and did general interest talk at the old WCAU-A.
"PHILLY is still my home and the only sports town that matters to me as a life-long fan," said BRUNO. "All of my family, kids and friends are here. Being back on every day to talk all-things PHILLY with all of the great people who have supported me over the decades is going to be awesome. Being on 97.5 THE FANATIC is just another great way to show the fans how it's better to have choices and we will give the real PHILLY fans a better choice."
"It doesn’t get any more PHILLY than TONY BRUNO," said PD MATT NAHIGIAN. "We are ecstatic to bring the sports fans of PHILLY truly one of their own. Tony has a unique way of entertaining his audience like nobody else."
