An awestruck Brian Baldinger couldn’t believe his eyes Monday morning upon seeing his partner Anthony Gargano behind the microphone once again at 97.5 FM the Fanatic. Baldinger had last seen Gargano entombed in Sarcone’s Deli, finishing off his second pound of mozzarella cheese while grieving the firing of his producer, Maureen Crowley Williams.
However, after three days and three nights, Baldinger returned to Sarcone’s Deli once again to try to convince Gargano to return to the airwaves, but was surprised when he found his usual corner booth vacant.
Gargano had disappeared, leaving behind only the strips of paper towels he had been using to mop up the grease trapped in his jowls.
97.5 FM Morning Show host Anthony Gargano returned to the air Monday morning after taking several days off last week after the firing of his on-air producer Maureen Crowley Williams.
Gargano and co-host Brian Baldinger both returned to the sports talk station this morning and addressed the elephant in the room right off the bat.
Philadelphia, PA – Maureen Crowley Williams spoke for the first time since being released from her 97.5 the Fanatic contract this morning, as the ex-producer for the 97.5 FM Morning Show told reporters she knew all along she was walking a tight-rope when it came to the high stakes game of “romance and Philadelphia sports talk radio.”
Williams, known to listeners as MCW, was long rumored to have been linked romantically to renaissance man Anthony Gargano, as the seasoned radio host and lover of the arts and fine wine brought her into the producer role despite having never had a prior career in broadcasting.
Williams said she knew it was a poor decision to mix romance with career, but couldn’t resist the debonair charm and the extensive knowledge of “hate the face guys” that Gargano possessed.
The lovelorn Gargano is struggling to wrangle his romantic thoughts to the page.
Philadelphia, PA – Gingerly rubbing the temples of his head with his sausage-like fingers, 97.5 the Fanatic Morning Show host Anthony Gargano reported Monday that he had not slept at all the night prior, his mind bursting forth with tenderness and love.
However, the transfer of his beautiful prose and thoughts of fancy from his mind to paper had proved fruitless, as the uncultured mamaluke struggled to craft the perfect love letter to Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz, who is 2-0 on the season and proving to be “the real deal.”
Jon Marks is leaving 97.5 FM for a new career opportunity.
Philadelphia, PA – Sources have confirmed that Jon Marks, a co-host and producer of the morning show at 97.5 the Fanatic, will be leaving the show and the sports talk station when his contract expires on Oct. 20.
Marks will finish out his contract and will remain on air until October.
However, Marks has already announced his next project, as he’ll launch a website dedicated to helping employees who have problems with bullies at their place of business.
“We really want to help those who face bullying day in and day out at their own jobs. Nobody should have to face bullying on a daily basis, especially those of us who are of middle aged and realize this isn’t high school anymore,” Marks said.
The lover of incredible meats.
Philadelphia, PA – After levying several shots against Big Cat and PFT Commenter for their recent GQ feature, the Pardon My Take podcast hosts summoned Fanatic Morning Show Host Anthony Gargano to their studio (apartment) after saying Sam Bradford’s name three times into their bathroom mirror.
Gargano spent the good portion of a segment this morning wondering why GQ Magazine would publish a feature on the popular podcast hosts and chastising his producer for “fawning all over Big Cat” when he met him in person.
Philadelphia, PA – Tragedy befell the popular 97.5 FM Morning Show’s Meat Locker segment this morning, as host Anthony Gargano and special guest former Philadelphia Phillie Kevin Sefcik were accidentally locked in the sub zero studio and suffered varying degrees of hypothermia.
The popular segment, which sees Gargano and the 97.5 Morning Crew interview a former Philadelphia athlete from the past, is actually held in a real meat locker cooled down to -5 degrees Fahrenheit.
