John Kruk to Join 950 AM Mornings

Apr 13, 2006, 9:38 AM EDT

Inqlings is reporting that WPEN sports talk 950 will be adding Kruker to their mornings in order to try and build their local programming in Philly:

Phillies retiree John Kruk is poised to join sports talk WPEN-AM (950) in what insiders are calling a "substantial" role.

The station says his role will be defined in a week or two.

Kruk and WPEN’s new program director, Jason Barrett, know each other from ESPN, where Kruk is baseball analyst. Kruk was unavailable for comment yesterday.

WPEN has been saying it wants to build a local stable of call-in programs, beyond Jody McDonald’safternoon-drive show and the nighttime 700 Level Sports Fanatics.

I always enjoyed Kruk’s comments on the Phillies when he was on baseball tonight.  With my crazy out of town work schedule I likely won’t be able to listen to much of Kruk on 950 unless they jump on the Internet radio bandwagon.
