TSP Radio and Talk Radio Podcasts, 10th Anniversary

April 22nd, 2020 by Leo | No Comments | Filed in 94WIP, Events, General, Interviews, TSP Radio

Well, as most know who follow TalkSportsPhilly on the Internet and our various adventures in the Sports World of Philadelphia and Beyond, it is TSP’s 10th Anniversary year.  And what a year it has been, saying sarcastically :).  Over the years we have done different podcasts on a variety of subjects and guests.  It hasn’t been the mainstay for TSP like the Internet and Social Media but another outlet of content for sports in a different format.  A few co-hosts even moved on to larger broadcasts and continue in Sports today.

TSP would like to Thank all that supported, participated, contributed, and read and listened over the last 10 years and will be here for many years to come.

Below is a Radio Player with a lot of different episodes on it if you want to take a listen, just Sports Talk:

ENJOY!

Leo Interviews Vince “The Invincible” Papale on TSP Radio

July 10th, 2019 by Leo | No Comments | Filed in Eagles, General, Interviews, PhillyWood, TSP Radio

In TalkSportsPhilly’s history I had a chance to talk with and interview Vince Papale on TalkSportsPhilly radio.  Vince has a lot of great advice to bestow in his book and in the interview.  I was impressed on how humble and friendly Vince is, he has a genuine interest in others and their success.  The “Invincible” movie very much similar to TalkSportsPhilly’s bid to talk sports and entertainment in Philadelphia.

In this interview we talk about his book “Be Invincible”, the movie, the Eagles, and future projects for Vince.  So take a listen and enjoy what Vince has to say.

Leo talks with Haddad of 94 WIP

January 26th, 2016 by Leo | Comments Off on Leo talks with Haddad of 94 WIP | Filed in Interviews, Sports, TalkSportsPhilly, TSP Radio

94wip2

Last night as I was listening to 94 on TuneIn on my Playstation, they were talking about one of my favorite subjects over the last few years, the Sixers.  I’ve been listening to 94 since I’ve been a kid, of course it was a rock station before its reincarnation to a sports station a few years back and I was listening to Sludge last night whom I listen to a few times a week on a regular basis.  I enjoy his show and generally like the topics and his banter and background in music.

I rarely call in to 94 and decided on a whim, since it was his birthday, and he hit a hot button topic of mine to pick up the phone and join in and throw in my 2 cents.  The last time I called in to the Josh Innes show to talk about Bradford of the Eagles I identified myself and got my butt reamed on the air and never got to talk sports so this time I decided just to be an innocent fan.

Let me preface this that I don’t look at 94 as competition to TSP, I look at us as an add on to the fray in the Philly sports media market, TSP started in 2009 and WIP switched to a sports format from a rock station in 2011 and is currently the leader in  sports radio in the Philly market.  If you look up Philly sports radio or 94 WIP radio on Google you will notice TalkSportsPhilly on page 1 or 2 in the search results I’m proud to say.

I began my rant by saying how embarrassing I thought the Sixers were to the city of Philadelphia and what the fans could do to light a fire under this team to get them to perform or to run them out of the city.  Brian handled the question well and came up with some good responses and basically said that the only thing the fan base could do is withhold support and not show up for the games.  But as for seeing a contending team anytime in the near future, I wouldn’t hold your breath.

As I mentioned that I ran a sports media site here in Philly and what all us media guys would have to do with ourselves with all the basement dwelling teams we are housing here in Philly as of late, I was quickly cut off and our conversation ended.  I probably should have had the courtesy of identifying myself since I was a first time caller to his show, but I will call back again and let him know the next time when I do.  Til then, all of us fans will just have to suck it up and hope for the best as the Phillies season comes upon us and pray the Flyers make the playoffs this year.

TSP Babe of the Year 2012: Kourtney Reppert, an Inside TSP Story

November 6th, 2015 by Leo | Comments Off on TSP Babe of the Year 2012: Kourtney Reppert, an Inside TSP Story | Filed in Eagles, General, Interviews, Philly Babes, TalkSportsPhilly

kourtneyreppert3

Back in 2012 TalkSportsPhilly decided to start its Babe of the Year project and the very beginnings of Philly Babes.  As you can see Kourtney is a very beautiful woman from the Philly area and has a large following on social media among other numerous credits.  As I approached her about it and after she inquired and we talked.  KR (that’s what i call her) decided to accept and we began to work together setting it up.

Since it was the first TSP Babe of Year and playing with the Philly Babes idea, KR and I talked, tossed some ideas around and cross promoted, a win-win situation, what could go wrong?

Well, I put the page together with her approval and links connecting to different outlets you can find KR.  I was promoting on the Philly Babes page, fresh out of the starting gate at the time, and KR was helping to spread the word.

One morning I awoke and went to my computer, I am a professional, so it’s a part of my life.  I went to the Philly Babes page and received a rather disturbing message.

February 26th, 2015 by Leo | Comments Off on Jersey Man / Philly Man Legacy | Filed in Eagles, Events, General, Interviews, TSP Radio

jerseymanphillymanThis week I had the pleasure of going to the Jersey Man / Philly Man legacy group networking event at Parx casino in Philadelphia and had a great time.  Jersey Man / Philly Man created the networking club to be a way local businesses and people to connect and promote themselves while having a good time.  The club is growing steadily with some of the top business professionals in the region and the opportunity to join in is available by contacting Ashley Dunek at 856-571-1171.  The events happen every month on both sides of the river at some of the best locations and a membership allows the participants to go to all of the events during the year.

jerseymanmagcoverJersey Man / Philly Man magazine is run by Ken Dunek and has a wide base of readers throughout the Jersey and Philadelphia area.  Ken has a great history here in Philly and played with the Philadelphia Eagles during the 1980 season where the Eagles faced Jim Plunkett and the Raiders in the SuperBowl.  Ken also played for several other NFL teams and played several seasons in the USFL with the Philadelphia Stars who won 2 championships.

The JerseyMan / Philly Man magazine offers a variety of stories about a host of topics by an experienced staff of writers and is published monthly.  You can also find them online at http://jerseymanmagazine.com as well as Facebook, Twitter and other social media.

I talked with Ken about the magazines and the Legacy group and he is very excited about its growth and future here in the Philly area.  If you have not read the magazines or heard about the Legacy group, I would strongly suggest you check it out or inquire about it by contacting them.  TalkSportsPhilly would like to thank the Jersey Man / Philly Man magazine for allowing us to participate in the event.  Keep an eye out in the future for an interview with Ken on TalkSportsPhilly Radio.
