February 3, 2010 at 4:28 AM (PT)
CBS RADIO Sports WIP-A/PHILADELPHIA is holding the "weigh-in" for its annual chicken-wing-eating orgy WING BOWL on THURSDAY (2/4) 5-7p ET at CHICKIE'S AND PETE'S in SOUTH PHILADELPHIA, the evening before FRIDAY's big event at WACHOVIA CENTER.
Morning show members AL MORGANTI and RHEA HUGHES will be on hand to record each of the 29 entrants' official weight, age, height, and hometown. The contestants' entourages and several of the event's "Wingettes" will be cheering the eaters on.
WING BOWL 18 will air live from the home of the FLYERS and SIXERS on FRIDAY morning, with the winner receiving a 2010 FORD F-150 pickup; the "Wingette of the Year" will win a 2010 HARLEY and a charm and necklace; and the winning entourage will win a trip for the eater and 5 entourage members to RIVIERA MAYA, MEXICO. The annual event originated on the station's morning show, the idea of MORGANTI with morning host ANGELO CATALDI.
