Philly Radio: Sports Hosts Turn Up The Trash Talk

Mike Missanelli
One day after SportsRadio WIP 94.1 FM host Tony Bruno took to Twitter to celebrate another big ratings win with co-host Josh Innes, frustrated WPEN 97.5 FM The Fanatic host Mike Missanelli slammed both on air during an aggressive rant on his show, according to

In a three-minute tirade on Thursday’s show, captured by Crossing Broad, Missanelli responded to jabs offered by Bruno and Innes, calling Bruno a rat, tagging Innes as a “fatass out of towner with man boobs” and claimed The Fanatic morning host Anthony Gargano nearly made Innes pee himself.

“Tony Bruno is a rat, okay.” Missanelli said, in response to Bruno noting his Fanatic show beat WIP before being forced out at the station. “He never, at any point, was number one here, unless he confuses number one with number seven.”

Bruno took to Twitter to respond:

Missanelli saved his worst comments for Innes, who he described as “some fatass out of towner with man boobs.”

“A kid who got beat up on the schoolyard every day of his life, kid who was afraid to take his t-shirt off in phys. ed class because he had manboobs. A kid that’s never played a sport in his life. A Howard Stern imitator. He’s what’s bringing you to sports talk radio in Philadelphia? Please”

Missanelli also described a confrontation between Innes and former WIP host Anthony Gargano, who was upset over being replaced and badmouthed by Inness on the air.
