Do Phils Have Deal With WPHT, WIP-F?
November 22, 2011 at 3:55 AM (PT)
A report in a tweet by LASALLE UNIVERSITY student and school TV sports host DAVID GRZYBOWSKI quoting CBS RADIO Sports WIP-A-F/PHILADELPHIA fill-in host and EAGLES pre- and post-game host and sideline reporter HOWARD ESKIN at his induction FRIDAY into the BROADCAST PIONEERS OF PHILADELPHIA says that CBS RADIO has retained the rights to PHILADELPHIA PHILLIES baseball and will simulcast the games on incumbent flagship Talk WPHT-A and Sports WIP-F, touching off more chatter in the market about the alleged deal.
ESKIN himself retweeted GRYZBOWSKI's tweet, but the report remains unconfirmed.
The PHILLIES' rights have been the subject of much speculation, with GREATER MEDIA Sports WPEN-A-F (97.5 THE FANATIC and ESPN 950) assumed to be among the bidders.
