ESPN 950 taking advantage of chance to air Series games

Among the radio destinations for the World Series will be ESPN 950, which will broadcast every game and attach programming to the start and end of the game.

That will begin Wednesday with Mike Missanelli reporting from Tampa, Fla., from 3 to 7 p.m. The weekly Trent Cole Show from Botto's Italian Line Restaurant will follow, running until 8, with the conversation swinging back and forth between the Phillies and Eagles. Brian Seltzer and Dan Swartzman will then take over a Phillies pregame show that will run from 8 to 8:22. Joe DeCamara and Tim McManus will follow the broadcast of the game with their postgame show.

Expect the same on Thursday, except Seltzer and Swartzman will follow Missanelli at 7 and take listeners up to the first pitch. DeCamara and McManus again will pilot the postgame show.

It will be Missanelli on Saturday from McFadden's at the Ballpark from 6:30 to 8:22, bridging to the the Game 3 broadcast from Citizen Bank Park. DeCamara said earlier today he's not sure who will direct the postgame show, but "we'll keep taking calls" well into the overnight.      

Sunday will feature football and baseball, with the Eagles postgame show at Finnegan's Wake lasting from 4 to 6 p.m., and the Phillies pregame show taking listeners up to the Game 4 first pitch at 8:30. Details are still being worked out on the site and host of the postgame show.
