94 WIP risks its journalistic integrity, discusses highly controversial Eagles “mock draft”

08d40986-1dba-cfd3-ff75-dad5ce49b42dPerhaps in a desperate attempt to bolster its sliding ratings, 94 WIP threw caution to the wind this morning when Midday host Joe DeCamara decided to discuss, on live air, a controversial NFL mock draft that has been floating around the dark web of the internet for the past week.

For perhaps the first time in the station’s vaunted and respected history, a sports talk show decided to acknowledge and discuss unverified rumors about an upcoming sporting event.

Only previously discussed in hushed tones by journalists behind closed doors, DeCamara brought up the several page document, published by an unknown NFL insider and malcontent at ESPN, which attempted to accurately predict every pick for the seven round draft based on each team’s needs on the field.

Seth Joyner should probably stop talking about hitting his kids on the WIP Midday show

Joyner.

(Editor’s note: This is not part of our usual satire content, but an actual conversation heard on the 94 WIP Midday show this afternoon featuring Seth Joyner that rubbed us the wrong way)

I’m not public relations employee or anything, but it’s probably not a good idea to talk about hitting your kids on a sports talk show.

During a segment this afternoon on the 94 WIP Midday Show, host Jon Ritchie was talking about his ability as a player to channel his anger into motivation to do well on the field with co-host Joe DeCamara and Joyner. Joyner decided it was a perfectly fine opportunity to drop a nonchalant anecdote about why it’s ok to hit your kids.

Here is what Seth said during the segment today (you can hear it here. It starts at the 6:19 point with Jon Ritchie):

Ritchie: Anger used to be rewarded, and maybe that’s changing. That puts these coaches in a difficult situation, and I understand that. Sometimes guys don’t respond the same way as they once did.

Joyner: You know what the problem is? The problem is we’ve got sports psychologists, we got psychiatrists and we got counselors that are advising people in a realm that they don’t really understand, that the way that it used to be isn’t the way that it should be anymore that we need to do it differently. Everything from our kids. Oh, don’t yell at Billy, just put him on timeout and put him in the corner. Don’t yell at Billy, just talk to him. You know?  I can see it, because before my mom passed away, god bless her, I’d take my kids to go see her. I’d be on their ass about something, and she’d be like, ‘Don’t yell at them, talk to them. You don’t have to beat them.’ I’m like, you beat the hell out of me! What are you talking about? It worked for me. Now all of a sudden you want me to talk to them? No, they’re going to get exactly what I got.

Ritchie: Yeah my parents are really nice to my kids. It’s annoying to me how nice my parents are to my kids, but it’s good, I guess.

::Joe DeCamara quickly changes topics::

Maybe he doesn’t think what he said is wrong? I don’t know. I’m sure he doesn’t really beat his kids, but why the joke if he’s joking? Just a really weird thing to say.

Isn’t that basically what got Adrian Peterson kicked out the league for a year? Beating his kid with a switch because it was done to him and that was “all he knew”?

Maybe chill out a bit, Seth, and keep the child hitting anecdotes to yourself.

Jon Ritchie already bleeding all over the 94 WIP Tastykake Studios

Just another day at the office for Ritchie.

Philadelphia, PA – Just an hour into his new midday show, former Eagles fullback Jon Ritchie is already bleeding profusely from his forehead and it doesn’t seem as if it will stop anytime soon.

Ritchie and Joe DeCamara are the newest midday hosts for 94 WIP Sports Radio, taking over for former midday show Mike and Ike, featuring Michael Barkann and Ike Reese, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Reese will host an afternoon drive show in the near future and Barkann was let go from the station.

Around 10:56 a.m., an audible dripping noise could be heard on the audio of the show while the co-hosts were discussing the Eagles victory over the Vikings

Ritchie, a fullback with the Eagles from 2003 to 2004, was known for his excessive forehead bleeding during each game he played.

Jon Marks researching karate classes after another Anthony Gargano bullying incident

Jon Marks, whom someone once said they were going to “put in a body bag.”

Philadelphia, PA – With tears welling up in his eyes, Jon Marks retreated to the safety of the 97.5 Fanatic break room this morning during a commercial and quietly googled local karate schools after Anthony Gargano once again called him a “stupid meatball” on air.

“I was just saying I didn’t think the Eagles were better off with Sam Bradford as quarterback, and he called me a meatball again,” Marks said, his bottom lip quivering. “I’ve got to learn karate, take a class or something. And not a class at the Y, at a good school this time.”

Since Gargano’s arrival at the station this past April, Marks has seen an increase in bullying incidents at the hands of the older, more seasoned radio veteran. Gargano has also gained the trust of and friendship of Fanatic employees Joe Decamara and Harry Mayes, who have also made life difficult for Marks.

The two Gargano underlings, dressed in skeleton costumes, reportedly beat up Marks during last year’s Halloween party.
