On Friday, Caridi headlined an Inside the Huddle fundraiser for the United Way of Southern West Virginia in Summersville.
According to the Beckley Register-Herald, Caridi said he had told IMG officials he wanted to continue broadcasting West Virginia Radio's "Sportsline" radio show. He told the event crowd Friday he and IMG were close to finalizing their arrangement allowing him to continue hosting the show.
"That's just one of several things we had to deal with, and, fortunately, it all worked out," Caridi said.
Caridi, a Syracuse University graduate, started working with the former Mountaineer Sports Network in 1987 as a television play-by-play announcer and feature reporter.
The sports director for West Virginia Radio's MetroNews network, Caridi has won the state's Sportscaster of the Year award on several occasions.
Appearing Monday morning on Hoppy Kercheval's MetroNews "Talkline" radio show, Caridi said his contract with IMG is a four-year agreement.
He also said, under the new agreement, he would host both the radio and television versions of WVU's football and men's basketball coaches' shows.
IMG said additional talent for the WVU broadcasts, including color commentary and sideline reporting, will be announced at a later date.
Also Monday, the company announced four new affiliates for its WVU radio network. They were: WDBS-FM and WKQV-FM in Sutton, WVBD-FM in Fayetteville, and WRON-FM in Ronceverte.
The new stations bring the network's total affiliate count to 20, with more expected to be announced in the near future.
Kercheval said on his show Monday that West Virginia Radio should announce its decision regarding upcoming WVU programming "in the very near future."
