Sports Talk Radio Apps
94 FM WIP / 610 AM
Sports Talk Radio is kind of a big deal in Philadelphia, and WIP has been the leader of the pack for decades.
Normally, I wouldn’t even throw this app a mention because it’s so very poorly designed. In order to listen on this app you have to set your screen lock to “never,” otherwise the audio feed will be cut off as soon as the screen locks. And listening in the background is way too much to ask for this sorry excuse for an app. It does however provide the only way to listen to WIP Sports Radio on your iPhone since they’ve now blocked access to other apps like TuneIn Radio.
UPDATE: A recent update on 10/5/2011 has fixed the playback issues. (Free)
97.5 – The Fanatic
ESPN Radio’s local Philly station has it’s own iPhone and Android Apps, and the bonus is they actually work. You can also access them with TuneIn radio app.
