Marks, who started as an intern when WPEN first became a sports station in 2005 (as Sports Talk 950 AM), joined Gargano when the former 94.1 WIP host jumped to the Fanatic to launch the station’s first morning show in an attempt to compete with longtime ratings champ Angelo Cataldi of WIP.

There is also no indication WIP has tried to recruit Marks for its open afternoon shift vacated by the firing of Josh Innes.

Phase 2 would be savings realized through lowering health care costs and renegotiating contracts with on-air talent.
