Al Morganti
00:28:28

Al Morganti is, unassumingly, one of the more hard-working guys in the Philly sports media industry. Al is up early as a co-host of the 94WIP Morning Show and up late as a TV analyst for the Flyers. The dichotomy of radio Al vs. TV Al is stark...and fun to experience. (Recorded: July 17th, 2018).

Ike Reese, 44, spent seven seasons as a Philadelphia Eagle (1998-2004) and two as an Atlanta Falcon (2005-2006), earning himself Pro Bowl and All-Pro honors in 2004 during Philadelphia's NFC Championship season. Ike is one of the all-time greatest players to ever play for Michigan State. Now, he has transitioned into one of the more prominent media personalities in Philly, as a co-host of the 94WIP Marks & Reese show (Mon-Fri, 2-6pm). But all of Ike's success did not come without a bit of turmoil.
