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.
 
One of the very few remaining founding members from the original sports format of what was then Sports Talk 950 in 2005, Harry Mayes has been integral in the rise of the radio station and has carved out a very important role with 97.5 The Fanatic. Harry is the mid-day co-host from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM. He provides an enthusiastic approach to sports talk – somewhat irreverent, never dull and always ready to provide a passionate opinion. Harry has also co-hosted various show such as the Desean Jackson Show,  the Brian Dawkins Show, the Brian Westbrook Show and our Eagles Pre-Game Show.
 
Prior to joining the radio station Harry was with ESPN Radio in the Lehigh Valley. He actually began with radio in Sales, but followed his passion of talking about sports and got himself positioned in front of the microphone. When Harry came to our station he started off as a Sports Update Anchor, but his talk show skills shined through and before long Harry was hosting shows regularly on the station. Harry can also be seen from time-to-time in the Fall as a contributor for Fox-29’s coverage of the Eagles and has appeared as a commentator on CBS-3’s Sports Zone.
