TONY BRUNO exited his local midday show with HARRY MAYES at GREATER MEDIA Sports WPEN-A-F (97.5 THE FANATIC and 950 ESPN)/PHILADELPHIA in MAY, but the station has announced that BRUNO is not only returning to host noon-2p (ET) on the station with MAYES, but will be moving back to the DELAWARE VALLEY full-time starting OCTOBER 3rd. DAN SCHWARTZMAN has been co-hosting the noon-2p slot with MAYES in the interim. BRUNO will be giving up his nighttime FOX SPORTS RADIO show, "INTO THE NIGHT WITH TONY BRUNO," to make the move back to the FANATIC.
"I'm very excited about returning home and coming back to my 97.5 THE FANATIC slot to resume the great radio we started in 2010," said BRUNO, who worked at the old WCAU-A and co-hosted mornings at WIP-A before embarking on his network career at ESPN RADIO, FOX SPORTS RADIO (twice), and SPORTING NEWS RADIO. "This is the best sports city in AMERICA and having done national sports talk for more than 25 years, nothing beats being back in PHILLY where it all started with my family, friends and great radio fans from all over the DELAWARE VALLEY. We did something no one thought was possible, and now with a total commitment to 'local only' radio, this should solidify us as the best sports radio station in PHILLY, period!"
