New deal makes WIP the Phillies' exclusive radio home in Philadelphia
The Phillies and WIP have extended the partnership that makes the CBS-owned radio station the team's home.
The Phillies and SportsRadio 94WIP have extended the partnership that makes the CBS-owned radio station the team's home.
Financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed, nor was the length of the deal. But this much is certain: games will no longer air on WPHT 1210-AM, which was the flagship station in the Philadelphia market for many years. Starting this season, 94.1-FM will be the only station in the city airing Phillies games.
In its announcement, WIP confirmed that the popular broadcast crew of Scott Franzke, Larry Anderson and Jim Jackson will remain in the booth.
Along with airing the games themselves, WIP will continue to air half-hour pregame and postgame shows around each broadcast.
