Spike Eskin
Congratulations to Spike Eskin, who has been promoted to PD of CBS Radio Sports Talkers WIP-FM (SportsRadio 94 WIP) and WIP-AM (CBS Sports Radio 610). He is named to the new position effective immediately.

Eskin (a FMQB alum) has been filling the PD role on an interim basis since Jeff Sottolano was named Director of Programming for CBS Radio earlier this year. Previously, Eskin served as Sports Editor for CBSPhilly.com and did part time airshifts on 94WIP as well as on-air work on KYW Newsradio and CBS 3.

Marc Rayfield, SVP/Market Manager for CBS Radio-Philadelphia said, "Spike is his own person. He is tenacious, strategic and a proven winner. We interviewed an extremely talented pool of national and local candidates. Spike was clearly our best choice."

Eskin will report directly to Operations Manager Andy Bloom, who added, "In the three months that Spike has served in the role on a day-to-day basis he has proved that he can handle any task presented to him, including literally saving a life.  I am confident that Spike’s diligence will play an important role in the stations continued growth."

Eskin said, "My career in radio has taken me in many different directions, and has ultimately led me to a job that I feel like I was born to do, and am honored and humbled to have. I'm excited to work with the best air talent in sports radio, and our incredible staff to continue building the legend that is WIP."
