September 7 @ 7:00 pm

$35 – $120

Join us for an exclusive one-night only evening with Ray Didinger.

“Finished Business: My Fifty Years of Headlines, Heroes and Heartaches.” This very special evening will look back at Ray’s unique career covering the Philadelphia sports scene. Ray is the only print journalist to cover the Flyers’ Stanley Cup Championships, the Phillies 1980 World Series Championship, the 76ers Championship in 1983-84 and the now-legendary Philadelphia Eagles victory in Super Bowl 52 over the New England Patriots. He was there for every game and every parade.

Join us for an exclusive 90-minute evening with a presentation from Ray, followed by an interview and audience Q&A moderated by sportswriter and WIP Radio partner with Ray for 21 years – Glen Macnow.

Enjoy this unique evening with one of two options.

VIP Package: $120 includes a signed copy of “Finished Business: My Fifty Years of Headlines, Heroes and Heartaches” and a private wine and cheese reception and photo opp in the Univest Cabaret from 6PM-6:45PM. The event starts at 7PM on our Mainstage.

Standard Package: $35 in advance, $40 at-the-door (based on availability). Signed copies of “Finished Business: My Fifty Years of Headlines, Heroes and Heartaches” will be available at Mac’s Lounge for $30.

Ray Didinger needs no introduction to Philadelphia sports fans.

Didinger recently retired after a distinguished 53-year career in sports media. He was the first print journalist inducted into the Philadelphia Sports Hall of Fame and as a columnist for the Philadelphia Bulletin and Philadelphia Daily News, he was named Pennsylvania Sportswriter of the Year five times.

In 1995, he won the Dick McCann Award for long and distinguished reporting on pro football and his name was added to the writer’s honor roll at the Pro Football Hall of Fame. He also won six Emmy Awards as a writer and producer for NFL Films.

Didinger has authored or coauthored 12 books including best sellers Finished Business: My Fifty Years of Headlines, Heroes and Heartaches, the Eagles Encyclopedia, Champions Edition and One Last Read, The Collected Works of the World’s Slowest Sportswriter.

His play Tommy and Me, which tells the story of his friendship with Eagles Hall of Famer Tommy McDonald, was first produced by Theatre Exile in Philadelphia in 2016.

Didinger was a talk show host on 94 WIP Sports Radio and a football analyst for NBC Sports Philadelphia for more than 25 years.
