Merrill Reese

Merrill Reese

Growing up, Philadelphia native Merrill Reese knew he wanted to be a broadcaster. A sportscaster, to be specific.

While attending Temple University, Reese learned his craft at the college’s radio station, WRTI, where he did play-by-play for school sporting events and spun records on his weekly music show. After earning his bachelor’s degree in communications and broadcasting, Reese embarked on a radio career that would take him to the small Pennsylvania towns of Pottstown and Levittown before he eventually landed a job as a newscaster and sportscaster at WHAT and WWDB in Philadelphia.

After a few years, Reese moved to WIP, where he worked as a summer replacement and fill-in sportscaster and eventually began doing pre-game and post-game shows for the Philadelphia Eagles. From there, he became the color commentator during Eagles games, and took over the play-by-play duties during the 1977 season.
