The Philadelphia Eagles and CBS RADIO’s SportsRadio 94WIP today announced a multi-year broadcast partnership for play-by-play coverage of all Eagles pre-season, regular season and post-season games. The agreement also includes new elements such as an HD Radio station devoted exclusively to the Eagles 24/7 with year-round programming. CBS RADIO Philadelphia stations have carried play-by-play coverage of the Eagles for 23 years since 1992.
Fans will be able to hear Eagles games on WIP and across the tri-state area’s 11 station Eagles Radio Network. The new deal begins immediately.
Eagles radio announcers Merrill Reese, the NFL’s longest tenured play-by-play announcer, and former Eagles All-Pro wide receiver Mike Quick will continue to provide commentary of the games on SportsRadio 94WIP.
“We are excited to continue our long-time partnership with CBS RADIO and SportsRadio 94WIP,” said Eagles President Don Smolenski. “Fans throughout the Philadelphia area know 94WIP as the radio home of the Philadelphia Eagles and we look forward to more memorable moments as told through the voices of Merrill and Mike.”
Added Marc Rayfield, Senior Vice President and Market Manager, CBS RADIO, “The Eagles are the most identifiable and beloved brand in the Delaware Valley. Listening to Merrill and Mike calling the games on WIP has become a multi-generational tradition. WIP is proud to continue our long standing partnership and is committed to offering our listeners the absolute best in compelling, local content.”
