Angelo Cataldi Staying With WIP Through Eagles Season

The retirement tour of WIP’s Angelo Cataldi has an end date…sort of.

Cataldi said during an appearance on the Working The Beat podcast he’d remain on the station’s morning show until the Philadelphia Eagles season is complete.

“I finally just said to my boss, ‘listen, it’s going to be weird for me to start an Eagles season and not know if I’m going to be there at the end,’” Cataldi said. “I’m willing to stay until the week they’re eliminated, in case they make the playoffs.”

He then joked, “if they’re bad this year, I’m done around Christmas”.

WIP has yet to name a replacement for Cataldi, who announced his upcoming retirement in October of last year.

Cataldi was later asked about former 97.5 The Fanatic host Mike Missanelli, who left the station, somewhat abruptly, in May.

“I don’t think it was respectful to him. I don’t think it was right,” Cataldi said. “I don’t know the internal politics of it. I’m pleased I never I never had to face that. He didn’t deserve it.”

He also added he offered Missanelli an opportunity to join his show to offer a farewell to Philadelphia listeners, but Missanelli’s non-compete agreement didn’t allow for it. Cataldi did say, however, that Missanelli’s non-compete runs out before his retirement.
