Life Is Good For Macnow

Glen Macnow is no actor.

The former Philadelphia Inquirer writer and longtime host on WIP isn’t acting like he’s having a great time on the radio.

He is.

He loves talking about sports. He loves talking to Philly sports fans.

And if it sounds like he has awesome chemistry with co-host Ray Didinger, he’s no actor there, either.

“When I’m on the air with Ray, I don’t look at it like I’m going to work,” Macnow said. “It’s hanging out, talking sports with a friend. Ray and I are friends, we enjoy each other’s company and we’re just having usual conversation.

“I’ve always found doing a show with a friend like Ray have been the easiest shows I have done.”

Macnow’s job just got twice as nice.

The pair, which has been a mainstay on Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. broadcasting live from Ponzio’s Diner in Cherry Hill, is now doing a show on Sundays in the same timeslot.

Macnow and Didinger, both legendary sports names and genuinely good dudes, always put on must-hear shows, but it’s not the only time you can hear Macnow during the week.

Every day at 5:15 p.m., he gets a segment on KYW to talk sports.

He also splits Phillies pregame and postgame shows on 1210 with Ricky Bottalico.

Whenever he’s on, no matter what he’s doing, Macnow is doing what he enjoys.

“I’ve always looked at myself as a storyteller,” he said. “When I was in newspapers, which I did for 16 years, I loved telling stories. When I left newspapers, which I liked doing, but was ready to leave, I tried to bring the same thing to sports talk.

“If I never worked in newspapers and just done radio, I would have regretted it, but I’m glad I did both, and I’m glad I’ve had opportunities to write books,” said Macnow, who has penned many books about movies and sports. “So I look at myself like a storyteller in everything that I do.”

This is something he continues to do, both on the air, in books or over a cold one.

670 The Score morning host Mike Mulligan is being awarded the Father Finnegan Memorial Award from Loyola University Chicago this weekend, and some of his colleagues congratulated him on the air Friday morning.

The award is given “in recognition of outstanding humanitarianism and service to youth through athletics”. Mulligan — a 1984 graduate of Loyola University Chicago — will receive the award Saturday during the Loyola Athletics Hall of Fame ceremony during a game against George Mason.

“Tremendous award,” co-host David Haugh said. “Proud moment for the show. Proud moment for you family.”

“They’re giving me an award for correctly picking the Super Bowl on September 8th,” Mulligan joked.

“That is fantastic,” Laurence Holmes said, while his co-host, Dan Bernstein, continued to say “wow”. “Congratulations. You shouldn’t be embarrassed. You should be proud.”

“I’m being celebrated for being old,” Mully joked.

“That’s not what that award says,” countered Holmes. “It says something completely different.”

The Mully & Haugh host eventually admitted he was appreciative of the award bestowed upon him by his alma mater.

“It’s a good thing. I’m very moved by it. Sister Jean will be there,” Mully said. “She has a book coming out with — I think — Seth Davis.”

Colin Cowherd: Tony Romo Regressing Because He Loves Golf

“I’ve always felt like Tony Romo is one of those guys — and we all have somebody in our social circle like this — he got the golf bug. He’s had it for 15 years.

The performance of CBS Sports NFL analyst Tony Romo has been a hot-button topic in sports media circles, especially after a widely-regarded lackluster performance during the AFC Championship Game. Colin Cowherd believes he knows why Romo has regressed.

During an episode of The Colin Cowherd Podcast, the sports radio host claimed golf is the reason behind Romo’s regression.

“Romo wants to be on the Tour. He literally wants to be on the Tour,” Cowherd said. “And what’s the first thing Aaron Rodgers does in the off-season? He goes and golfs, he loves it. Both, by the way, great golfers, especially Romo. But I’ve always felt like Tony Romo is one of those guys — and we all have somebody in our social circle like this — he got the golf bug. He’s had it for 15 years.

“Tony wants to be on the PGA Tour — but he likes the paycheck from CBS.”

Cowherd also added he hasn’t hired potential employees in the past if they told him they loved golf during the interview process, saying he has a theory that as men age they “get addicted to golf”.

“They’re on PGATour.com, they’re putting in the backyard, they’re thinking about it at work, they’re scheduling a trip to Scotland and they lose sight of their other job,” Cowherd said.
