John Bolaris blasts Angelo Cataldi, WIP in Twitter rampage
In a shocking development last night, local legend John Bolaris revealed he has been banned from the Philadelphia airwaves. First, let me explain who John Bolaris is, because odds are you children reading this don’t know.
Bolaris was a maverick weather forecaster and cocksman that went down in a blaze of glory when he called for a “Storm of the Century ” that failed to materialize back in March of 2001.
I know what you’re thinking. “Maverick weather forecaster” sounds like some imaginary job from an Amazon streaming series. I promise you, this man was real and all your mothers would have left your fathers for him in a heartbeat.
In fact, if you were born in Philadelphia between 1990 and 2001, you might want to go ahead and get a paternity test just to be safe.
John Bolaris was on twitter last night where he vented his frustrations with not being able to discuss the upcoming Winter storm with the public.
An offhand remark quickly turned into a tell all series of tweets. He specifically mentioned Jack Fritz from WIP as a producer that ignored his calls.
(If Jack Fritz ever reads this post and wants to publicly address these allegations, he’s more than welcome to contact us at The Liberty Line. We’ll happily update this post to include his side of the story.)
Before you knew it John was zeroing in on his specific problem with Philadelphia broadcasting. That problem: Angelo Cataldi. He cited Angelo’s ego as a massive problem, and claimed everyone at the station was eagerly anticipating the morning show host’s departure.
(I’m not going to lie, I thought he retired back in December.)
After a bit of joking around, a stunning revelation was made:
John Bolaris had in fact, been banned from WIP.
As of the writing of this article there is no update on the status of John’s investigation. There was however another shocking revelation. John Bolaris has found himself so mad at Angelo Cataldi that he’s openly praising Mike Missanelli. (Yuck.)
In the midst of all this excitement he never even got the chance to give his weather forecast on the air. That, of course, is the true tragedy. But remember what I said earlier, Bolaris wasn’t just any weatherman. He was a maverick weatherman. The kind of guy that hangs out with Howard Stern one day, and then gets roofied by criminal ring of eastern European femme fatales the next.
WIP has yet to comment on his ban. But that’s usually how these things go. No weapon is more powerful than silence.
