Season's greetings from the Eagles

Here's your game plan for Eagles television and radio programming this season:

The essential “Eagles Post Game Live” airs immediately after every game on Comcast SportsNet. Michael Barkann, Gov. Ed Rendell, Ray Didinger, Vaughn Hebron and Derrick Gunn return.

The new magazine show, “Eagles Locker Room,” airs every Wednesday at 4:30 and 11 p.m. on Comcast SportsNet.

“The Donovan McNabb Show” returns with Eagles' insider Dave Spadaro replacing Mike Quick as the host. It will air on 6ABC Saturday at midnight.

Don Tollefson replaces Spadaro as host of “The Andy Reid Show,” which will air on Fox Sunday mornings at 10:30 a.m. Tollefson also leads “Eagles Game Day Live” on Fox Sundays at 11 a.m.

Gunn goes one-on-one with an Eagle on “Inside the Eagles” Thursdays at 5 p.m. on Comcast SportsNet.

Gary Papa and Shawn “The Big Kid” Andrews return for “Eagles Football Frenzy” on 6ABC Sundays at 11:35 p.m.

Vai Sikahema quarterbacks “Sports Final” immediately following “Sunday Night Football” on NBC10.

Obsess over your fantasy football team (my quarterback is Peyton Manning) on “Fantasy Fix” Thursdays at 4:30 on CSN.

WYSP will finally get some listeners again since the departure of Howard Stern. All of the games will be broadcast on 94.1-FM. Merrill Reese and Quick will be in the booth. Vinnie the Crumb, Bill Bergey, Kevin Riley, and Didinger will broadcast the pre-game show, and Bergey and Paul Jolovitz will do the post-game show.

WIP will host its raucous pre-game show from the Wachovia Center with Howard Eskin and others during home games. Didinger and Glen Macnow will host the pre-game show during away games. Steve Martorano and Hugh Douglas will host the post-game shows.

Sports Radio 950-AM is finally getting into the game. It will feature Jack McCaffery and Glenn Foley pre-game and Harry Mayes and Jamie Yannacone post-game.

Brian Dawkins will join the 950 team for its Monday night show from 7-8, and he'll call into the morning show Mondays at 7:30 a.m. Dawkins also will continue his player-reporter role for Fox29's “Game Day Live.”

Jon Runyan will replace Jeremiah Trotter on the weekly show with Anthony Gargano this season on WIP. Media-friendly Runyan also will make a weekly appearance on Comcast SportsNet and serve as a player-reporter for Fox29.

This week's Eagles-Packers game will air on Fox at 1 p.m. Sunday. Kenny Albert, Daryl Johnston and Tony Siragusa are the announcers.

Also, 6ABC airs the special, “Philadelphia Eagles: 75 Years of Gridiron Glory” at 8 tonight.

Enjoy the season!
