of December 1997. At the time of his departure he left the morning
show at #3 12+ behind KYW and Stern and #11 in 25-54. A popular
host with strong conservative values and a soft southern twang.
Phil brought his humor to the show (see parody links below) and appeared

mobile home emblazoned with the station logo and colors.

Phil, who came to WWDB from WTN-FM in Nashville, started his
broadcast career working on a weekend TV news team. In between, as
well as being a top-rated radio talk show host, his
accomplishments include: being a writer & actor; recipient of
an Addy Award for Creative Writing, Character Voice-Over And
Production; having a supporting role in the motion picture "A
Letter From Death Row" (starring Bret Michaels of the rock
group "Poison") and appearing in numerous TV commercials
including the WWDB "Beyond The Headlines" TV campaign.
Phil was raised in North Carolina. He went to East Carolina
University with the intent of becoming a lawyer (like his father,
grandfather and brother). Phil says that "once I got there, I
discovered I didn't want to work that hard." His friend told
him that he had a low voice and "should consider radio."
The rest is history. Phil and his wife Susan (a direct descendent
of William Penn) have two sons; Carr and Campbell.

tells us he began his broadcasting career "behind the
scenes" working on a local TV station's weekend news team.
Shortly after he started this job, the owner of the station
"had this hairbrained idea to sell the TV station and start
this 24 hour news service. Everyone thought the owner had gone
nuts." Oh, by the way, the "crazy" owner of that
station just happened to be Ted Turner.
