    It may well have been weekends---and I would guess perhaps the championship(?).

    I would also suggest Wing Bowl had lived until its original stated purpose, and honestly, beyond its useful life. Not that it doesn't save money, but sometimes promotions do end regardless, and a fair argument could be made the Super Bowl championship provided the cover to end it, regardless of what happened with ownership.

    A couple cuts at 1210.:

    In the latest cutbacks at Entercom’s Philadelphia cluster, Jared Hart has exited WPHT (1210) after Entercom eliminated the Program Director position at the talk station. Spike Eskin, PD at sports sister WIP-FM (94.1), will handle talent coaching and Production Director Frank Canale will cover other details.

    In May WPHT added the Compass Media-syndicated “The Joe Pags Show” (Joe Pagliarulo) to nights, completing a line-up revamp that has Rich Zeoli anchoring mornings and the Premiere Networks-syndicated Sean Hannity replacing Zeoli in afternoons. Hannity is sandwiched between fellow syndicated conservative talkers Rush Limbaugh (12-3pm) and Mark Levin (6-9pm). The station now only carries local programming daily from 5:30am noon.

    You don't need a PD, if you only have one local show.

    Two, actually....Dom Giordano, Philly's own Methuselah of talk, 9-noon. But yeah, basically 18 hours a day of syndication so a dedicated PD isn't really vital.
