In what I thought was all just a fever dream I suffered through months ago, our collective nightmare is coming to NBC Sports Philadelphia on April 16 as the Mike Missanelli Show is debuting on the network at 2 p.m.
In case you haven’t cultivated a healthy dislike for Missanelli based purely on his voice and horrendous sports talk opinions on 97.5 the Fanatic, you now have the opportunity to hate him based on his physical appearance as well. It’s a real win-win for Philadelphia.
We are hearing a strong rumor that Dwayne from Swedesboro will be the first caller to the new show to wish Mike a long and successful broadcast run.
The show will run until 5 p.m. and will feature producer Tyrone Johnson and update anchor Natalie Egenolf, who I’m assuming was the real selling point for the visual medium movement of the show.
NBC Sports Philadelphia and 97.5 the Fanatic announced yesterday that Mike Missanelli will be the host of an afternoon show on NBC Sports Philadelphia beginning in 2018. According to a tweet from the station, NBC Sports Philadelphia will simulcast Missanelli’s show each afternoon and will be followed by Philly Sports Talk at 5 p.m.
In related news, I’m very much looking forward to reading NBC Sports Philadelphia’s February 2018 press release about the show being cancelled.
Why? WHY? WHYYYYYYYYYYY is this needed on television? Were fans of Mike Missanelli’s radio show clamoring to see his gigantic noggin on their television screen every afternoon? Isn’t that one of the positives to listening to Missanelli,? You don’t have to look at him? I’m pretty sure that was one of the station’s taglines for his show….”Listen to the Mike Missanelli show every afternoon on 97.5 the Fanatic…at least you don’t have to look at him.”
