Glen Macnow To Leave The Philadelphia Airwaves In July


Longtime Philadelphia sports radio host Glen Macnow has announced his retirement, capping a distinguished 31-year career. Macnow, who has become a staple on Audacy’s WIP, has set his last day on-air for July 13.

In an initial social media post, Macnow described his career as a “joyride,” thanking his colleagues and expressing profound gratitude to the listeners for their support over the years.

His departure follows another longtime WIP figure, Angelo Cataldi, who retired in February 2023 after 33 years with the station.

In the following on-air announcement, he said, “For more than 31 years, 20 of them as a full-time host and the last 11 of my weekends, I’ve had the pleasure of sitting in these studios sharing my thoughts about Philadelphia sports. Celebrating and suffering with this marvelous fan base. I’ve worked with talented partners and producers. I’ve wrestled with bosses and always tried to be honest in my opinions.”

“I’ve had the privilege of seeing amazing performances on the field, on the ice, on the court. I got to broadcast two championship parades – to be honest, I thought there were going to be more of those, but I’ll take two… Now it’s time to put down the headset.”
