Bissinger's new gig: radio talk show host

Buzz Bissinger '76 has certainly has had a busy spring.

He released a personal book about his relationship with his son. And it was recently announced that he will be writing the screenplay for the film adaptation of his book Three Nights in August.

Now Bissinger, a former DP Sports Editor and Editorial Page Chairman, has added the role of radio host to his already packed schedule. On June 25, he began hosting an afternoon drive show (3-7 p.m. daily) on Philadelphia CBS station Talk Radio 1210 WPHT (1210-AM). The show is co-hosted by longtime Philadelphia radio host Steve Martorano.

"This will be my first regular full-time gig on radio,” Bissinger told the Philadelphia Inquirer. "Actually [it'll be] my first time I've worked for someone in 20 years."
