CBS Radio Sports 94.1 WIP Philadelphia will continue as the flagship station for Philadelphia Phillies baseball.
No terms for the agreement have been released, however the previous two deals were one year agreements, with the most recent reached in February 2016 just weeks before the first Spring Training broadcast.
CBS Radio’s SportsRadio 94WIP and the Philadelphia Phillies have agreed to extend their broadcast partnership for exclusive live play-by-play coverage of Phillies games.
The Phillies radio broadcasts have aired on CBS Radio Philadelphia stations since 2004 and have aired on 94WIP for the past five seasons. Scott Franzke, Larry Andersen, and Jim Jackson will continue to call the games on 94WIP.
“We’re thrilled that SportsRadio 94WIP is continuing the partnership as the radio home of Phillies baseball,” said David Yadgaroff, Senior Vice President and Market Manager, CBS RADIO Philadelphia. “The Phillies have become part of the fabric of WIP and we’re excited for the 2017 season to begin.”
“We are excited for the return of Phillies baseball, and along with that, our radio broadcasts on SportsRadio 94WIP,” said David Buck, Phillies Senior Vice President, Marketing and Advertising Sales. “CBS RADIO is a long-time partner of ours, and we look forward to working with them, once again, to bring the very best coverage to our fans, starting with spring training and continuing throughout the 2017 season.”
“Leading Off” will continue on 94WIP as a half-hour pregame show prior to Phillies coverage. “The Final Out” will continue as the half-hour postgame show, which immediately follows Phillies coverage.
94WIP will also continue to host regular broadcasts from the NovaCare Broadcast Booth inside of Citizens Bank Park.
