Phillies games will broadcast on 94WIP as well as 1210 AM this season, Glen Macnow and Anthony Gargano just announced on WIP. Both stations are owned by CBS Radio so the simulcast certainly makes sense.
The Daily News reported Nov. 23 that this would be happening. At the time, neither the Phillies nor CBS Radio would talk.
The deal starts this month with live coverage of the team's spring training camp from Clearwater, Fla.

Local artists Thom Lessner and Ted Passon of Space 1026 are behind the new animated video for “Nothin’s Gonna Stop Us,” the new single by The Darkness, the metal band which plays the Trocadero (1003 Arch) Tuesday.
Lessner is a member of the band Sweatheart, and Passon, a filmmaker, made headlines in 2008 after his car was flipped over in South Philly by a rowdy mob celebrating the Phillies World Series win.
NBC10 reporter Justin Pizzi was back to work Monday, after what sources say was a week's suspension over prematurely posting on Twitter that Joe Paterno had died.
On Jan. 21, Paterno's death was reported by a Penn State blog and was immediately picked up via Twitter feeds and websites of many media outlets. The Paterno family issued a prompt denial.
Sportscaster Lou Tilley introduced District Attorney Seth Williams to speak Friday at a Ritz-Carlton event kicking off the Philadelphia Soul/Greater Media Radio's Stand Up campaign against child sexual abuse.
As the event ended, Tilley went over to shake Williams' hand and compliment the speech, only it wasn't Williams, but a member of his security detail, whom Tilley had mistaken for the district attorney.
