Philly Sports Radio Host Nearly Chokes To Death On Cheesesteak

angelo-cataldi

I’ve been listening to Angelo Caltadi on the radio since I was a young teen, so that takes a little bit of the hilarity out of the story.  I have a cheesesteak probably every other day.

It’s a staple of life here in Philly.

According to the Philadelphia Inquirer, Cataldi, the morning host of Sports Radio 94 WIP almost had a serious life threatening situation develop over a cheesesteak.

While filming a commercial to hype up Friday’s Wing Bowl at the Wells Fargo Center, Cataldi took a monstrous bite of a cheesesteak and it got stuck in his throat. Without anything to drink, Cataldi was choking to death until Spike Eskin, the son of Howard Eskin, another long-time Philly radio stalwart, saved Cataldi’s life by performing the Heimlich maneuver.

In typical sports talk fashion, the near-death experience soon turned became humorous, as Eskin and co-host Keith Jones began to make cracks about Cataldi nearly choking to death.

Here’s hoping Cataldi chews next time.
