Philadelphia legend Ray Didinger has announced his retirement

Philadelphia sports media legend and Professional Football Hall of Fame member Ray Didinger has announced his retirement on his Sunday morning radio show SportsRadio94WIP with Glen Macnow.

“Sunday, May 29 will be my last show,” Didinger announced. “I’m ready to move from Ray Didi to Grandpa.”

Didinger, 75, was born and raised in Delaware County and graduated from Temple University.

Didinger covered the NFL for The Philadelphia Bulletin and The Philadelphia Daily News for more than 25 years, and in 1995 his name was added to the list of honors at the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

Didinger also worked as a senior producer at NFL Films, as an Eagles TV analyst at NBC Sports Philadelphia, and of course as a radio host on various SportsRadio94WIP shows, most notably on his noon weekend show with Glen Macnow, which quickly became one of the most popular. favorite shows on our waves.

Didinger was named five-time PA Sportsman of the Year and inducted into the Philadelphia Sports Hall of Fame in 2005.

Known to many as the “Godfather” of Philadelphia sports, Didinger is one of the most respected analysts in the history of our city. Here’s Didinger on January 31, 2018, talking about what an Eagles Super Bowl winner would mean (which, of course, they did a few days later).

In the summer of 2018, I spoke to Didinger about his life, career, and path to success on my own Wired this way podcast. You can listen to the episode below.
