As we reported last week, CBS Radio’s SportsRadio 94WIP has announced Chris Carlin (pictured left) will be joining Ike Reese for afternoon drive. Carlin and Reese will officially launch on Monday. Carlin broke into the radio business at WFAN in New York where he became the producer of the Mike & The Mad Dog program at the age of just 24. Carlin remained in that role for seven years.
In 2004, Carlin transitioned to a permanent on-air role, working briefly as host of the overnight show at the FAN before joining Imus in the Morning as the show’s sportscaster in 2005. In 2007, he joined the
Boomer & Carton morning program in a similar role, while hosting The Morning Warmup. In March of 2008, Sportsnet New York launched Loud Mouths, a New York sports debate show, featuring Carlin and co-host Adam Schein. At the end of 2008, Carlin left WFAN and joined SNY full-time, where in addition to Loud Mouths, he hosted the New York Mets pregame & postgame shows for five years alongside former Mets pitcher Bob Ojeda.
Ike Reese has spent the past five years hosting middays on WIP. Prior to that, he was the evening host. Reese played football at Michigan State. He was drafted by the Philadelphia Eagles in the fifth round of the 1998 NFL draft where he eventually earned Pro Bowl and All-Pro honors. He played in 128 consecutive regular season games, holds the Eagles’ team record for the most tackles, and was voted Special Teams MVP.
