Philly Radio: Gargano Set To Return Monday To WPEN-FM

After an unannounced absence from his 97.5 The Fanatic morning show, Anthony Gargano will return on Monday, according to

Rob Tornoe writes Gargano was reportedly upset when the station let go update anchor and co-host Maureen Williams, who helped him launch the show back in 2015, and “took a few days off to cool off,” one source said.

The removal of Williams means the show has lost two of its original four members since replacing Mike & Mike, which was syndicated by ESPN Radio and can still be heard locally on WTEL 610 AM.

Back in October, former co-host Jon Marks left the coveted morning radio slot to take a less prestigious (and lower-paying) position as the evening host at 94.1 WIP.

Jamie Lynch, who produces the show and is known to many listeners as "The Bro," remains on the show with Gargano, but is on vacation in Europe.

So far, The Fanatic is being tight-lipped about potential replacements for Marks or Williams.

The station also hasn't officially filled its open evening-host slot, vacated by the departure of longtime host Joe DeCamara. Like Marks, DeCamara took at job with rival WIP, and is hosting the station's afternoon show alongside former Eagles fullback Jon Ritchie.
