Orlando Market Veteran Jim Philips Announces Retirement.

“The Philips Phile” host Jim Philips has announced his retirement from iHeartMedia talk-classic rock hybrid “Real Radio 104.1” WTKS Orlando, FL, effective January 2018.

After playing a clip of “Take This Job and Shove It,” Philips broke the news to his listeners during his Tues. (6/20) afternoon drive show. “This is something I have been thinking about for the last several months or so and I’ve been kicking around for awhile,” he said “I’ve been in this business for a very very long time… and essentially came to the conclusion that I should hang it up.” Philips, who has been heard in the market for 30 years and is approaching his 70th birthday, added, “It’s time to do something else.”
