Phillips will join Gary Williams to co-host Gary and Phillips in the Morning, weekdays starting on Oct. 4 from 6:00-10:00 AM EST. The station is headlined by Chris “Mad Dog” Russo, who’s the host of Mad Dog Unleashed weekday afternoons.
“Having served as a player, director of player personnel, scout and general manager I have a unique perspective on all issues in sports,” Phillips said in a statement. “To have the chance to do a national daily radio show, in drive time, on a top notch channel like Mad Dog Radio, is one of the more thrilling opportunities of my career. For the past several months I’ve seen first-hand the broadcasting quality and freedom that SIRIUS XM offers and I’m excited about taking on a more expanded role.”
Phillips will continue his role as host of Sirius XM Fantasy Baseball.
After he was fired from ESPN in 2009 for having an affair with a production assistant, Phillips joined Fanhouse.com as a baseball columnist and was a contributor to Mike’d Up on WFAN with Russo’s former radio partner, Mike Francesa.
