ESPN 950 has been trying to juggle Phillies games throughout the postseason while also carrying games from the other series. Tonight it’s not a problem with just the Phil scheduled for an 8:22 p.m. start. The problem has been when other games have bumped up against either the start or finish of the Phillies games.
Assistant program director and talk-show host Joe DeCamara said a couple hours ago that the priority has been to carry the pregame and postgame shows ahead of a non-Phillies game. “We’re doing our best to air the ALCS as much as possible as long as it doesn’t interfere with Phillies pre and postgame shows and the [Mike] Missinelli show,” he said.
Tonight, they’re planning to feature Phillies icon Greg Luzinski on the latter portion of their pregame show, from Bott’s Italian Line restaurant in Swedesboro, N.J. That will start at 7 and continue up until the first pitch. DeCamara said that he and fellow host Jon Marks will pilot the postgame afterward and that if the Phillies clinch “and we’re getting tons and tons of phone calls, we’ll just go as long as people want to talk.”
They’re planning the same for Friday, if the series goes to Game 6. Mike Missanelli will take the reins of the pregame show starting at 3 p.m. and carry it right up until game time. Postgame will feature DeCamara and Marks and could go on “to 2 or 3 in the morning” if they clinch.”
