    This is quite entertaining to see unfold. I saw him once when he was trying to pitch some Fantasy sports site business before. He must have gotten that prideful ego and let himself get carried away.

    Good, I hated the morning show almost entirely cause of Carton. Of course WFAN will probably hire another stupid heel like Sid Rosenberg or the fat governor of NJ to take his place and make me loathe the morning show just as much.

    No way man, bringing in Sid or Christie would be disaster.

    Boomer may stay around and be in a powerful situation now

    They want at least one heel that everyone hates in that 6-10 slot for the morning show to be edgy, that's been their history. From the Imus/Rosenberg days to Carton since.

    My first thought when I heard the news was that this opens another door (a wide one hopefully) for Chris Christie at WFAN. I also thought that perhaps Christie's cronies from his AG days may have had something to do with the investigation.

    Crazy - top rated radio show in NYC, free Super Bowl trips for life, access to all pro athletes, invited to celebrity parties, Manhattan apartment with a good family - ALL GONE. He pissed it all away because it wasn't enough and he had to gamble it all away to get more. But even if he only did that he would have been perfectly OK, just declare bankruptcy, get help, and rebuild your finances.

    Instead this fucking shit for brains moron goes and lies about a fraudulent business and cons people who trusted him and steals 6 fucking million dollars with no possible way of ever getting that back and makes it all crystal clear what he did in a paper trail any novice investigator can pin him on in less than 2 minutes.

    Fuck this guy, the wife and kids will suffer and he'll probably be in jail until he's an old man. All for nothing, what an asshole

    Worse, addicted to gambling. Lots of lives destroyed by gambling and unlike drugs the family often never knows until everything blows up so little to no chance they can try to help before it's all said and done.

    You laugh ! As much as I despise Christie, him being on in the morning with a national, or at least out of NYC market, makes more sense than it did to have him replace Mike in the afternoons. I don't listen to the morning show much now anyway, so for that reason alone I'd prefer his fat ass be in the chair then than in the afternoons.

    So what happened on Boomer & Carton the last two days? I don't listen to the show.

    I'm wondering what WFAN did. They brought in a replacement co-host?

    WFAN announcing anything about what they're going to do since Carton won't be available?

    Maybe I'm in the minority but carton (even if obnoxious) made the morning show a complete laugh and the amount of funny moments that he is directly responsible for will probably never be reproduced. Boomer is a talented broadcaster himself and with Chris Simms he did just fine today. The show will never be the same because people want to laugh in the morning to get ready for work or whatever it is they're doing.

    Carton never struck me as a criminal either, he was brash, over the top, but never seemed to want to do harm. But there were many instances where he would give gambling advice to callers so in the end I guess it's not shocking that he got involved in this shady stuff.

    I feel bad for his wife and kids because life is about to become very very different from them.

    WFAN will now have 2 prime radio personalities to replace in 2017.

    ^That would be Phil Simms. :)

    Chris is his son (former NFL QB).

    Now they are saying Carton also stole most of the money from his Tourette's charity to feed his gambling habit
