Greater Media’s 97.5 The Fanatic Philadelphia announced Vai Sikahema and John Gonzalez as the new hosts of the Early Midday Show (Weekdays 10am-Noon). Sikahema is a former NFL player who played with the Philadelphia Eagles. As a player, Sikahema was named to two NFL Pro Bowls and became a local Philadelphia Folk Hero in 1992 when he returned a punt for a touchdown in Giants Stadium and proceeded to punch the Giants goal post. Vai now works for NBC 10 TV as a sports reporter and anchor, and is also the Sports Director.
Gonzalez, or Gonzo as he’s also known, is a native Philadelphian and sports writer for the Philadelphia Inquirer. With his irreverent humor and outlook on sports, Gonzo has injected new life into the world of Philadelphia sports commentary. John started on 97.5 The Fanatic as a weekly guest on the Mike Missanelli Show, which led to guest hosting and fill-in spots.
“Vai and Gonzo bring great credibility and a fresh new approach to our station,” said 97.5 The Fanatic PD Matt Nahigian. “We got an amazing response from our listeners when they were paired together and I am now thrilled to let them entertain our audience from 10 to Noon each weekday.”
