610 WIP’s Anthony Gargano has landed what we hear will be a weekend show on Fox Sports Radio.
Gargano will continue hosting 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on WIP with Glen Macnow but his new show will be heard in more than 300 markets and on XM Satellite Radio.
Fox Sports Radio has not revealed when Gargano's show starts or when it will be heard, but plans to make such annoucements in the coming weeks, says a network spokeswoman. The network, for which former Inquirer columnist Stephen A. Smith hosts a morning program, is not carried on the air in the Philadelphia market but can be streamed online at FoxSportsRadio.com.
"I'm looking to represent Philadelphia to the nation. I'm tired of all the negative stereotypes about Philadelphia and I'm going to quash them. No more throwing throwballs at Santa and all that," Gargano told us this afternoon.
He'll be filling in for the vacationing Howard Eskin with Ike Reese from Wednesday through Friday and then takes off for his own Florida vacation until Labor Day.
