A face for radio: Craig Carton will now drive from Pennsylvania to New York. He was just passing through New Jersey, anyway ---and now he will do it regularly. Hope he has an EZ PAss. Or doesn't meet up with anyone he has insulted.
Another 101.5 afternoon drive host has been bumped upstairs. Apparently, in any other office or job if you insult Latinos, Jews, women, Asians, gays & lesbians ----you’d be fired. But in radio, you get a raise and a promotion. Carton will now be one of the two morning guys on WFAN on the old time period formally held by Don Imus. Will WFAN ever learn? I guess if they had a guy who insults African-American women, they figure they will do better with a guy who insults everyone equally. Go figure.
Hope Carton can rise early enough to get to work on time ---unless, of course, he is now living in New Jersey so he can be closer to New York.
In other news, Don Imus has settled with CBS, and may get back in to radio.
We all long for the days when the toughest thing anyone would hear on the radio was the “Holy Cow!” of Phil Rizzuto. So it goes, Scooter.
You will be missed. If there is a baseball heaven, you know they have a heck of an infield.
