I can do it, but what I like, and all my friends who have heard me on the air say is I have never laughed so much. The stuff we manufacture is all about entertainment and making people laugh in the car.Mike Francesa, meet Craig and Boomer
I have friends texting me that they are laughing so hard they had to pull over on the L. And while both are grateful for the position they are currently in, they are also very respectful of how they got there.
We should all have careers as long as he did. He was never my kind of guy, but he is obviously talented enough to last a very long time doing this and we should all be so lucky. When you look at what we are doing now and how it ties into everything after us, it fits perfectly. There is synergy now here at the station and we feel very fortunate about that.
Stafford was on the show shortly after the draft and Esiason was giving the kid advice on how to approach his first few years in the NFL and negotiating his first contract.

The relationship that has been built between Esiason and Carton has been fascinating and entertaining to watch as it grows.

Phillips was also embroiled in an extramarital affair while working with the Mets. He was soon filling in for other personalities as WFAN entered its disjointed summer vacation schedule.
It was inevitable that Phillips and Carton would cross paths on the air and when they did, Carton went after him about his improprieties. A lot of that attitude comes from his youth when he was a regular listener of Howard Stern. I listened to Howard growing up and I am not ashamed to admit it.
WE’D LOVE TO KNOW!
Bettman called into the show on the day after Chicago Blackhawks right winger Patrick Kane netted the Stanley Cup clinching goal in overtime against the Philadelphia Flyers. He understands the power of this radio station. News Director Tracy Burgess starts laughing in the background as Esiason continues. People know who I am. I spent my life in locker rooms, so I know locker room humor better than anybody.
It took us a few months to get comfortable, but everyone understands their roles now.
