    Host of the Mike Missanelli Show (2p-6p)

    The man who revolutionized what great Philadelphia sports radio is all about and in the process turned PM drive-time talk radio on its head, Mike Missanelli has been nothing short of a broadcasting tour de force since joining 950 ESPN in April, 2008. Mike’s sports acumen, witty pop-cultural references and overall fun persona are just a few of the many factors that draw listeners to the show and helped him ascend to #1. Listeners know that Mikey Miss is always there from 2:00 – 6:00 PM, whether it’s landing the biggest interviews, bringing forth Sound Off or consistently taking the back of Philly sports fans against the national pundits who wail away at us.

    For Mike the journey has been long and rewarding. A newspaper writer who started out on the high school beat in the area he moved up to the Philadelphia Inquirer and eventually made the transformation over to radio. Years on the air in the Philadelphia market provided the backdrop for what would become Mike’s greatest challenge and ultimately his greatest professional accomplishment: carrying 950 ESPN on his back so effectively that the powers-that-be decided to put all their chips in with the radio station – culminating in the creation of the first FM sports station in Philadelphia radio history and signing Mike to a new multi-year deal to ensure that he leads the way for years to come at 97.5 The Fanatic.
