This just in: The Phils have announced a new radio agreement.
Via a press release, the Phils have announced that they have just signed a new multi-year radio contract with CBS RADIO’s Talk Radio 1210 WPHT and SportsRadio 94WIP, to cover live play-by-play broadcast of all Phillies pre-season, regular season and post-season games, starting with Spring Training later this month. Financial terms have yet to be announced.
Announcers Scott Franzke and Larry Anderson, who for the last few season have been announcing the game for 1210 WPHT will, starting this year, also be broadcasting on 94WIP.
In general, this means that the Phils will be having their games broadcast on both the AM and the FM dial on the radio.
Sounds to me like the Phils won’t be worrying about where the money stream for their players’ contracts will be coming from for the next few years. Especially if they can continue to win. That’s good news.
