An announcement was made yesterday that the Philadelphia Phillies have reached a multi-year agreement with CBS Radio that will allow FM’s 94WIP (Philly sports radio) to broadcast Phillies’ pre-season, regular, and post-season games. I can’t even tell you how excited I am about this. Though the games will also still be heard on AM’s 1210WPHT (just like last year), for a lot of us access to AM radio and/or finding a decent signal is limited and somewhat frustrating.
David Buck, Phillies Senior Vice President of Marketing/Advertising and Sales said via press release:
“1210 WPHT has a long tradition as the Phillies flagship radio station in Philadelphia. We’re proud to continue the partnership and look forward to many exciting seasons ahead. We’re also thrilled to have an FM station broadcasting our games with the addition of SportsRadio 94WIP.” – CBSPhilly.com
The first game that will be heard on 94WIP will be on March 3rd, 2012, which is the Phillies’ pre-season opener against the New York Yankees.
Here is a little news from View From Section 116:
As of today, contributing writer Karilee Jeantet will be taking over as the senior writer for View From Section 116. And I will be stepping down into the contributing role.
I have enjoyed writing for Aerys and the Phillies for almost a year now, so I put a lot of time and thought into this decision. But the time has come for me to take on a smaller role, by choice.
This decision was definitely made easier by the fact that Karilee is terrific and knows her stuff. All you have to do is read her contributions to know she will make a wonderful lead writer.
So this isn’t goodbye, this is just a little blurb to let you all know of the change here.
