PHILADELPHIA, PA — Talk Radio 1210 WPHT announced that Rich Zeoli will be the host in the 3p-6p slot on 1210AM, online at www.cbsphilly.com, and through the Radio.com app available for a variety of mobile devices starting Wednesday, November 5th. Rich will discuss local and national policy, the economy, the biggest news stories and issues that affect all Philadelphians, coupled with interviews of the day’s news and decision makers.
“We are thrilled that Rich is moving to afternoons at WPHT. He’s a smart, energetic, entertaining talk show host who can tackle a variety of issues that relate to his audience.” said Marc Rayfield, Senior Vice President and Market Manager, CBS RADIO Philadelphia.
Added Zeoli, “This is a passionate town and we have opinions on everything. I love nothing more than challenging the audience and they challenge me right back. There are many local issues that impact our lives and we need a place to talk about them. That’s what the show is all about and what I plan to bring to afternoon drive on WPHT – a place for the Delaware Valley to talk. I’m just as interested in talking about pop-up beer gardens as I am about NSA spying. What makes this town like nowhere else in America is its passion, and we’ll share a lot of passion on the drive home together.”
Conservative opportunist yakker Dick Morris will leave his weekday show on WPHT 1210-AM after election day. Morris made the announcement on air today during his 3-6pm show he hosts with Gary R'nel. Morris came to Philly in March 2013 and as part of his contract had to broadcast from Philly a set minimum number of days resulting in Morris splitting his time between an apartment in Philly and his house in Florida.
The usual rumors abound including Morris being picked up by his friend Ted Cruz as the presidential campaign for 2016 starts to simmer this winter. By all accounts managment was happy with Morris' performance at the station. Officially no replacement has been announced but look for one soon.
Morris mentioned "moving" his show and being on the air from noon to 1pm on Saturdays.
I noticed when a Verizon app was updated on my phone it kept asking me to sign in. The only thing I was using one of their apps for was to keep an eye on data across the 4 phones on my account. Now a second app was next to it asking me to sign in. Then I got this email from Verizon that cleared up the mystery. They want to track all the websites I visit on my desktop PCs and send ads to my phone. Clever and hell no.
By now you've all heard of the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge where one pours a bucket of ice water over your head then challenge others to do so in the hopes of raising money for ALS. Some people are, in my opinion, bending the rules just a tad by using smallish buckets, no ice, all ice, etc. If your underwear isn't wet you're doing it wrong. None of this, "Oh that cup of ice on my shoulder is soooo cold!" stuff.
Some are doing it with style and laughs as witnessed here by Katie Fehlinger doing it on CBS in Philly.
