Comcast’s Olympic Bid

Plus Charlie Pizzi's new role, WHYY's new purchase, the Tropicana's new uniforms and more of what Philly is talking about this morning

Charlie Pizzi’s New Job. Now that Georgia-based Flowers Foods is up and running as the new owner of all things Tastykake, the Tasty Baking CEO will become a consultant with a “reduced role.” No word on whether his new position will require a hairnet. [Business Journal]

WHYY to Buy NJ Public Broadcasting Licenses. As part of Governor Christie’s plan to get the state out of public TV and radio in New Jersey, WHYY would purchase five state-owned radio licenses in a deal that includes $926,000 cash. They better not be using the Scoop’s tote-bag-level donation; that was meant for “You Bet Your Garden” programming only. [NYT]

Philadelphia Teachers “Publicly Humiliated.” Teacher lay-offs are on hold till a hearing next Tuesday. Regarding the school district’s handing out of pink slips yesterday, Jerry Jordan, president of the Philadelphia Federation of Teachers, says “he’d never witnessed such disregard for employees.” Also a sticking point: 200 Promise Academies teachers were exempt from getting the boot.

The Charlie Manuel Show Returns! Timed well after last night’s win against the Dodgers [700 Level], the Phils manager will be back on WIP with Anthony Gargano and Glen Macnow today starting at 11:45 a.m. They’ll be broadcasting from Ponzio’s Diner in Cherry Hill. [CBS 3]

Sexy New Uniforms for A.C.’s Tropicana. The “nice-looking” women the Tropicana is looking to hire for its upcoming “party pit” will get new lingerie-inspired outfits for work. Perhaps work should have been in quotes too. [Fox 29]

Brian Roberts Wears a Business Suit. No, wait. This just in: Actual news is that Brian Roberts and Bob Costas are among a group lobbying at Olympics HQ for Comcastiverse rights to broadcast the 2014 games. (Please note: This is all on Swiss time, which the Scoop takes to mean “very precise.”) [Inquirer]
