“The Continent” is heading to Philadelphia! Longtime New York sports radio and television veteran Chris Carlin has signed on to become the new afternoon host at Sports Radio 94 WIP. Carlin will team up with former WIP midday host and former Eagles linebacker Ike Reese weekdays from 2p-6p ET.

Carlin has been a mainstay on the SNY television show ‘Loud Mouths’ since 2008. He also hosted Mets Pre and Post-game shows on SNY for a period of five years. According to a report in the New York Daily News his final appearance on ‘Loud Mouths’ will be on November 4th.

Prior to becoming a familiar face on New York sports television, Carlin was a popular voice on WFAN in New York. He filled in on talk shows on the station, worked as an update anchor for “Imus In The Morning”, and produced Mike Francesa for six years.

To maintain his radio chops, Carlin has kept busy by hosting national radio shows for SiriusXM. He’s also served as the voice of Rutgers men’s basketball and football. Recently though he gave up his basketball play by play duties to former WFAN colleague Jerry Recco.

Carlin and Reese will be tasked with providing stability to WIP in afternoons and helping the station make inroads against 97.5 The Fanatic drive time host Mike Missanelli. The Fanatic has beaten WIP in the ratings in afternoons for the majority of 2016 when the show was hosted by Josh Innes. Innes is now hosting the afternoon show for SportsTalk 790 in Houston.

The new team of Carlin and Reese are expected to start on WIP in early November. Sources say the likely start date is Monday November 7th. Their addition completes WIP’s weekday lineup. The radio station recently added Joe DeCamara and Jon Ritchie to middays. Angelo Cataldi remains installed in mornings.

The United States has been eliminated from the 2022 World Cup, and FOX Sports Radio host Doug Gottlieb believes that will return the sport back to its usual place inside the sports media landscape.

“I’m sure people in the soccer world are still talking about the World Cup,” Gottlieb said on his In The Bonus podcast Monday. “But zero people I know in real life are talking about the World Cup today.

“You can tell me how big soccer is in the world — and I’m not gonna dispute it — and you can tell me we’re doing better in the world than we’ve ever done — and I’m not gonna dispute it, it’s fine — but the fact is that as soon as that match was over we went from a couple of hours of soccer guy, or writer guy who’s really a soccer guy at heart, talking about should we change coaches, tactics, players, or whatever, and then it’s over. I don’t know who won and I don’t care.”

Gottlieb later added that soccer has been “the sport of the future” for his entire life, but added that college basketball is going on right now, and it isn’t on the national sports radar, either.

94WIP afternoon host Jon Marks has revealed he is working without a contract.

A report from CrossingBroad.com claims Marks mentioned the development on the air two weeks ago, and Marks confirmed the news when the outlet asked him for comment.

He did not, however, wish to say much more about the situation. WIP is currently in the midst of changes to its lineup due to the upcoming departure of legendary morning host Angelo Cataldi.

In late October, the station announced the current midday show of Joe DeCamara and Jon Ritchie would replace Cataldi in the mornings. Longtime morning co-host Al Morganti will remain with the station but will no longer be heard in mornings once DeCamara and Ritchie take over. Anchor Rhea Hughes will stay in the morning timeslot.

The station has yet to name a new midday show to replace DeCamara and Ritchie. Marks is currently teamed with former NFL linebacker Ike Reese from 2:00-6:00 PM. The two were paired together in 2017.

“Maybe he was doing that emphatically because somebody criticized him as flat or something.”

Monday Night Football got off to an energetic start last night, with the usually reserved Joe Buck showcasing an exuberant attitude while discussing the weather and the fact that the calendar has already flipped to December. WFAN morning host Boomer Esiason wondered if there was an ulterior motive to Buck’s raucous start.

In addition to the energy exuded by the Monday Night Football announcer, Buck nearly howeld in excitement as the network showcased Tom Brady’s usual scream of “Let’s F—ing Go!”, by shouting “Yeah! Let’s go! I can’t say one of those words!”

The excitement was noticed by Boomer & Gio update anchor Jerry Recco who played the audio for the show, with Boomer Esiason wondering if Buck was proving a point to someone.

“Maybe somebody told him he was too downcast the previous broadcast,” Esiason wondered. “Maybe he was doing that emphatically because somebody criticized him as flat or something.”
