Craig Carton in play to replace Mike Francesa with Gregg Giannotti moving to mornings

Mike Francesa is scheduled to retire in 2017 if health concerns don't force an earlier date. How would the WFAN daily schedule change?


Here is one lineup that has been discussed:

Mornings

  • Boomer Esiason 
  • Gregg Giannotti

Mid days
  • Brandon Tierney
  • Ryan Ruocco

Afternoon
  • Craig Carton


Cross station contracts would have to be worked out with the (current) ESPN talent Ruocco discussed. Carton is solidly in play for the drive time, however, not everyone is convinced he could carry 5+ hours and could be paired with one of the slotted mid day names.


Esiason's long term commitment is not set in stone yet and either of Tierney or Ruocco could also pair with Giannotti, who is solidly a morning play. Joe Benigno and Evan Roberts? Back ups in any spot except afternoon.

One year ago today, Mike Francesa fan 'EliIsElite' took a look at how Mike's retirement show might go down.
