    Brian Baldinger co-hosts the 10:00 AM - Noon show every weekday along with Harry Mayes. "Baldy" has been a fixture in the Philly sports scene ever since coming to Philadelphia as a player on the 1992 Eagles. He was a starter on the squad that captured the Eagles first playoff win in what then had been twelve seasons as the Birds memorably took down the Saints in New Orleans. After his playing career ended in 1993 Baldy, like so many other athletes, sought to develop a second career in broadcasting. With odds for big success stacked against him Baldy proved the doubters wrong. His passionate and articulate approach, his specific knowledge of sports and his drive to succeed simply were too strong. Before long Baldy was broadcasting NFL games on Fox and immersed in a big-time broadcasting career. He continues to this day as a NFL game analyst for Compass Media Networks and as studio analyst for the NFL Network.
