Tony Bruno Out at 97.5 The Fanatic

The radio station releases a brief statement on his departure.

Greater Media Philadelphia, owners of the ESPN-affiliated sports talker 97.5 The Fanatic, released a very brief statement today announcing that Tony Bruno has resigned from the station.

“Tony Bruno has chosen to resign his position at 97.5 The Fanatic. We thank him for his contributions and wish him well.”

Bruno was off the air this week, reportedly over a contract dispute. His name is no longer on the station’s website.

Bruno, a Philly native and Temple graduate, worked at Philly talk radio stations in the 80s and 90s, then went to ESPN for most of that decade. He bounced around in the 2000s, eventually landing a gig hosting the 97.5 late morning show with Harry Mayes in 2010. After co-hosting the show from California, he moved to Philadelphia about a year in.

You also might remember him from the in-game radio show in the 2005, 2006, and 2007 versions of Madden NFL Football.
