Michael Barkann is out at SportsRadio 94.1 WIP amid changes to the station's midday and afternoon lineups.
Former 97.5 The Fanatic host Joe DeCamara, who left the station just last week, is replacing Barkann, and will launch a new midday show alongside former Eagles fullback Jon Ritchie. Ritchie co-hosted a nationally syndicated late night radio show with comedian Artie Lang, and has been a color commentator on DirecTV’s Fantasy Zone Channel, part of the station's NFL Sunday Ticket.

Most recently, Ritchie lost a bruising four-way Republican primary to replace retiring state senator Pat Vance in Harrisburg, freeing him up to take on a full-time role with WIP.

WIP defines sports radio to me, and Philadelphia defines passion,” Ritchie said. “I’m foaming at the mouth because this is a gigantic opportunity to drop truth bombs on a savvy fan base who appreciates brutal honesty.”
The new afternoon show will launch on WIP on Monday. 

Former Eagles linebacker Ike Reese, who has co-hosted the Mike & Ike Show with Barkann since 2011, will move to the afternoon slot vacated by the firing of Josh Innes starting on Monday. WIP hasn’t made a decision who will co-host afternoons alongside Reese, and says it plans to make an announcement in the coming weeks.

One person who is rumored to be on WIP's radar is Jon Marks, who left his job as co-host of Mornings with Anthony Gargano at The Fanatic earlier this month.

Barkann, who has been a host on WIP since 2011, couldn’t be immediately reached for comment, but the host did thank the station in a note posted to Twitter:
WIP didn’t say why Barkann was being removed from its lineup, a somewhat surprising move considering his contract wasn't up until next year. It's possible his busy schedule, which includes hosting duties at Comcast SportsNet, was an issue. 
Reese also shared his thoughts about Barkann's departure:
Ratings for the Mike & Ike Show have declined over the past year, and the show often tied or was beaten by the 97.5 The Fanatic duo of Rob Ellis and Harry Mayes.
