WIP host Glen Macnow just left his afternoon hosting stint along with Anthony Gargano, citing a contract dispute for his early departure. Macnow's contract is up at the end of the year and he's currently in negotiations.
I reached out to Macnow via e-mail:
"As I said on the air, my contract with WIP is finishing up. WIP management and I have agreed that I should take some time off the air until my contract situation at the station is resolved. I just finished my 20th year at the station. Just let me say that I've cherished the opportunity to work with three great partners in Jody McDonald, Ray Didinger and Anthony Gargano. I love the people at WIP and I particularly love the Philadelphia fans I get to talk with every day. I hope to continue talking with them."
Before his stint at WIP, Macnow was a sports reporter at the Inquirer. He did the pre-show game at the Linc on Sunday before the Eagles-Lions game and was still scheduled to be on-air, according to CBS' website.
