The Voice of Philadelphia Sports for Over 30 Years.
Hello, sports enthusiasts and radio show listeners! Welcome to Angelo Cataldi’s corner of the world, a name that’s become synonymous with Philadelphia’s sports talk radio scene for over 30 exhilarating years. Here, you can expect to embark on a journey through decades of thrilling sports analysis, Philadelphia history, unforgettable on-air moments, and where Angelo shares a glimpse into his life and legacy as a man who’s spent decades immersed in the heartbeat of Philadelphia sports culture.
Born on March 13, 1951, in the lively city of Providence, Rhode Island, Angelo was destined to dive headfirst into the world of journalism. Armed with a Bachelor’s degree in Journalism from the University of Rhode Island, he honed his craft and enhanced his skills at the prestigious Columbia Graduate School of Journalism, where Cataldi delved even deeper into the art of storytelling.
His journey to the microphone began in 1977 with a pen as a writer for the Providence Journal and later for the Philadelphia Inquirer throughout the 1980s. Here, he had the privilege of crafting narratives that captured the essence of the games we all love. Fast forward to 1990, when a new chapter unfolded as Angelo took the reins as a talk show host on the iconic 94 WIP Sportsradio, a platform that would become his stage for the foreseeable future.
For over thirty years, Cataldi proudly occupied the airwaves as the unmistakable voice of 94 WIP Sportsradio, which ultimately shaped his identity as “Mr. Philadelphia’s Sports Talk Radio.” With a voice that could rattle the very foundations of Veterans Stadium and Lincoln Financial Field, he brought passionate discussions, expert analysis, and unfiltered opinions to the ears of countless listeners. It was during these broadcasts Angelo became a voice not just in the city but in the hearts of sports enthusiasts far and wide.
Outside the studio, Cataldi embraced his role as a husband and family man. Moving from the charming shores of Rhode Island, Angelo and his brood found a new home in the heart of Philadelphia. His journey has seen him through the highs and lows of life, including a divorce that reshaped his path and a remarriage that brought him a sense of completeness.
Cataldi is a true Philadelphia loyalist, passionately supporting all four of the city’s beloved sports teams. Although he could commandeer any press box, he often chose the comfort of his home, where Angelo watched more sports on TV than he attended in person. With a keen eye for the game and an insatiable appetite for the latest scores and strategies, Cataldi reveled in the thrill of competition from the comfort of his living room.
