Yeah I know this happened like 20 hours ago.
But 97.5 let Tra Thomas go today because of budget cuts. Let me say this, no Radio Station has gone from good to awful faster than 97.5. This is coming from a guy who would spend full days listening to the station.
Great talent has been let go by 97.5 over and over again but the riveting content of Anthony Gargano is still being broadcasted to all of the Tri-State area. I mean what are we going to do if we lose this?
If your dog takes a bite or licks your food, would you still eat it or throw it out?

In the last few years names like:
and let’s not forget Sean Brace….
Have been let go and almost all of them have moved on to bigger things. WIP at this point is the only Philly sports talk I recognize.
Tra was a breath of Fresh Air. He was great at talking Football, he was funny, and most important he was a true Philly Guy. And I truly hope he gets picked up by WIP.
In Philly, Morning Shows are going to be hard to break into with Preston and Steve and Angelo still going strong. There isn’t a market for 97.5 in the morning. That’s why the show has gone thru 3-4 shake ups since it was launched.
And Don’t get me stated on Mikey Miss the king of the PC in todays world. What would we do without General Knowledge Wednesday???? (Shout out Tyrone though)
Anyway, pour one out for Tra! and to basically steal from another Philly blog ” Radio Wars!” Play the song…
