Angelo Cataldi Honored With Proclamation

94 WIP morning host, Angelo Cataldi, was honored by the Philadelphia City Council with a ceremonial proclamation.  A native of Providence, Rhode Island, Cataldi resonates with the Philadelphia sports fan as the popular radio host has been covering Philly sports for 35 years and featured on the WIP morning show for nearly 30 years.

“I hereby authorize the funding for the signing of LeBron James as soon as possible,” said Cataldi when he stepped up to the City Hall podium.

“I cannot begin to tell you the honor this is for me, for one reason above all others…I did move here 35 years ago from Rhode Island which I never really like that much,” joked Cataldi. The legendary broadcaster went on to say he made it his goal “for the past 35 years to become as close as you can to actually being a Philadelphian without being born here and I feel like this kind of certifies that.  I’d love to believe for the rest of my life that I am now, the greatest honor you can have, to be a Philadelphian.”

Earlier this week, Cataldi joined his 94WIP peer, Andrew Porter, on the podcast Wired This Way with Andrew Porter to discuss his career and love for Philly.  “I have adopted this city, I am so happy I ended up coming here. I am so happy I didn’t leave,” Cataldi told Porter.

Porter’s podcast debuted this week with Cataldi being his first guest.  The next episode of Wired This Way with Andrew Porter will feature Cataldi’s career rival (although they both work for the same station) Howard Eskin.

Colin Cowherd: Tony Romo Regressing Because He Loves Golf

“I’ve always felt like Tony Romo is one of those guys — and we all have somebody in our social circle like this — he got the golf bug. He’s had it for 15 years.

The performance of CBS Sports NFL analyst Tony Romo has been a hot-button topic in sports media circles, especially after a widely-regarded lackluster performance during the AFC Championship Game. Colin Cowherd believes he knows why Romo has regressed.

During an episode of The Colin Cowherd Podcast, the sports radio host claimed golf is the reason behind Romo’s regression.

“Romo wants to be on the Tour. He literally wants to be on the Tour,” Cowherd said. “And what’s the first thing Aaron Rodgers does in the off-season? He goes and golfs, he loves it. Both, by the way, great golfers, especially Romo. But I’ve always felt like Tony Romo is one of those guys — and we all have somebody in our social circle like this — he got the golf bug. He’s had it for 15 years.

“Tony wants to be on the PGA Tour — but he likes the paycheck from CBS.”

Cowherd also added he hasn’t hired potential employees in the past if they told him they loved golf during the interview process, saying he has a theory that as men age they “get addicted to golf”.

“They’re on PGATour.com, they’re putting in the backyard, they’re thinking about it at work, they’re scheduling a trip to Scotland and they lose sight of their other job,” Cowherd said.
