WPHT unveils new lineup


CBSCBS Radio’s Talk Radio 1210 WPHT today announced a new weekday line-up, featuring all live and local talent beginning on Monday, 6/25.  The newest addition to the station as host of afternoon drive (3:00-7:00PM) will be Pulitzer Prize-winning author and pundit Buzz Bissinger.

He’s joined by Steve Martorano, currently heard on WPHT and best known to listeners for his many years on WIP radio. The station can be heard on-air at 1210AM, online at www.cbsphilly.com, and through the Radio.com app available for a variety of mobile devices.

The station will be anchored in morning drive by witty and provocative host Chris Stigall (5:30-9:00AM), followed by Dom Giordano (9:00AM-12:00Noon).  Popular and award-winning Michael Smerconish will broadcast live on WPHT from 12:00Noon-3:00PM.

“With the Presidential election only a few months away, there couldn’t be a better time to heighten our focus on how today’s issues affect our friends, relatives and neighbors,” said Marc Rayfield, SVP/CBS Radio Philadelphia.  “The addition of Buzz to the line-up and presenting Michael’s program live to the audience gives us an incredible advantage as a station created in Philadelphia by Philadelphians for Philadelphians. Buzz has one of the most compelling voices in Philadelphia today.  He’s intelligent, honest and hard hitting. He doesn’t play favorites; his only goal is to pursue the truth and no one in local media is more qualified to do so.”
