The lone local weekday show on Sacramento’s ESPN 1320 is expanding. Beginning next Monday Feb. 22, listeners will get an additional two hours of D-Lo & KC, with the early afternoon show airing from noon – 4pm. 

Local standouts Damien Barling and Kenny Caraway teamed up last August for the new show, which launched in the noon – 2pm time slot. D-Lo & KC also provide a local lead-in for ESPN 1320’s simulcast of Damon, Ratto & Kolsky originating from sister station 95.7 The Game in the Bay Area. The lineup change will cut the first two hours of ESPN 1320’s simulcast. 

Barling’s radio career in Sacramento spans nearly two decades, contributing both behind the mic and behind the scenes. Before joining Entercom’s ESPN 1320 last August, Barling had a stint co-hosting The Lo-Down on Sacramento’s KHTK 1140 for three years. 

Like Barling, Caraway is a Sacramento native with media experience across multiple platforms as a radio host, producer and recent contributor to The Athletic.

The Philadelphia Eagles postseason run will determine how much longer Angelo Cataldi hosts his morning show on 94 WIP. While hosts Joe DeCamara and Jon Ritchie wait in the wings to take the reins from Angelo, they took time on Wednesday to reveal the rest of the cast of contributors and fill-in hosts for the new WIP morning show.

“Angelo for many, many years has had a wonderful team. And obviously we’re indebted to what he did for all the years putting everything together,” DeCamara said. “We want to just sort of duplicate it at a similar level of success and longevity. And to do that you want to put together a group that you really believe in and want to have a great shot with and entertain people for years.”

DeCamara and Ritchie revealed that longtime morning contributors Rhea Hughes and Joe Weachter will continue to serve in their capacities. DeCamara said he’s excited to work with such a tenured producer and have him and producer James Seltzer collaborate.

“Everybody cares about Joe, because he’s been such a huge part of Angelo’s show for so many years behind the scenes as the producer,” DeCamara said. “He’s gonna be producing this show in addition to helping James out. And we got ambitious plans for social media and ways we can get Joe involved in all sorts of ways to help present our show to the public. So that’ll be a big part of it.”

WIP newcomer Devan Kaney will also be a regular on the morning show. DeCamara also announced Philly sports media legend Ray Didinger will also be heard at certain points.

As for insiders and contributors to discussions on the Philly sports teams, it was announced former Phillies TV analyst Ruben Amaro, former Phils announcer Ben Davis, former Eagles linebacker Seth Joyner and Ron Jaworski will be in the lineup.

Ritchie said having someone like Amaro on to talk baseball is going to be a great chance to soak up as much knowledge as possible.

“You know so much, and I feel like I’m gonna learn so much from you,” he said. “And I think we’re all so fortunate.”

Additionally, comedian Joe Conklin will be added to keep things lively and fun.

Craig Carton: I Want Evan Roberts To Have a Show on MLB Network

“I love you and I respect your work ethic, I got one job right now, and that’s it.”

Craig Carton sees something in his WFAN co-host Evan Roberts, and he feels like Evan would be a good candidate to make the jump into television.

Carton has added hosting a daily show on FS1 on top of his WFAN duties, and said Wednesday he pictured Roberts hosting a baseball show. Roberts hosts a popular New York Mets podcast called Rico Brogna.

“I think you should be hosting a show on MLB Network,” Carton said on their WFAN show.

Roberts wasn’t big into the idea.

“I love you and I respect your work ethic, I got one job right now, and that’s it,” Roberts replied.

Carton asked what if MLB Network said they’d pay Evan $250,000 a year to do a show. Craig added Evan could do the show from 10-11 a.m.

Roberts said they wouldn’t be able to pay him enough on top of sacrificing dad duties at home.

“I don’t want to get up at 7 a.m.,” Roberts said. “I take my kids to the bus every day. I’m not giving that up.”

Evan also noted that he’d be on a tight leash and would likely be disciplined pretty quickly working at MLB Network for speaking against commissioner Rob Manfred.

“Cause if I have something critical to say about baseball, I’m not holding it back to make suits happy,” he said. “I’m not gonna go on and start giving different opinions. I can’t do that.”
