Al Morganti has been a member of the SportsRadio WIP family since the early 1990’s. Along with host Angelo Cataldi and fellow co-hosts Rhea Hughes, Keith Jones and Ricky Botallico, the WIP Morning Show is the highest rated sports radio show in the Philadelphia area. In addition to his radio work, Al is a nationally recognized hockey analyst who regularly covers the National Hockey League, mainly as a pre and post-game analyst for the Flyers for games broadcast on Comcast Sportsnet Philadelphia.
Al is credited by being the brainchild of WIP’s Wing Bowl, the internationally known wing eating competition held on the Friday prior to the Super Bowl. Wing Bowl was originally started so that Philadelphia would have something to get excited about around Super Bowl weekend since the hometown Eagles weren’t Super Bowl contenders.
Al is originally from Boston, graduated from Boston University and landed his first journalism job writing for the Boston Globe. Between The Globe and WIP, Morganti worked for The Atlanta Constitution, ESPN and the Philadelphia Inquirer.
