PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Spike Eskin and Hollis Thomas will join Josh Innes on the Josh Innes Show, beginning Monday, August 17th. Eskin, Thomas, and Innes will broadcast weekdays from 2:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m.
The 94WIP Mike & Ike Show with Michael Barkann and Ike Reese will now broadcast weekdays from 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. pm.

Eskin, 39, took over as Program Director of 94WIP in March of 2014 and he will continue in that role. Prior to that, Eskin served as the CBS Philly Sports Editor, WIP social media editor and host, and KYW Newsradio fill in sports anchor. Eskin also hosts the popular Rights To Ricky Sanchez podcast. The Delaware County native graduated from Syracuse University in 1998 and began his radio career as a 94WYSP intern.
Growing up at the Eskin dinner table is the perfect training for the chaos that is the Josh Innes Show.
Thomas, 41, was an undrafted defensive tackle was signed by the Philadelphia Eagles in 1996 and thrived for 10 seasons, before joining the New Orleans Saints (2006-2008), St. Louis Rams (2009), and Carolina Panthers (2009) to complete his successful NFL career. Thomas, an Abilene, Texas native, began his broadcasting career as a host at 94WIP in 2011.
Over the past few weeks in trying various partners with Innes, Thomas and Innes have shown an amazing chemistry. Adding a former Eagle is a perfect complement to Innes’ opinion about football. It’s a technique that has already proved successful with Reese, another former Eagle.
Since taking over afternoon drive, Innes has become the top-rated afternoon show among men. This new ensemble will build on that success.
