There are only 2 moves that can save WFAN at this point

Before the NY Post puts know nothing about the pulse of the people Justin Terranova on a piece on who should replace whom at WFAN - we'll tell you the only moves that even remotely could save CBS from No More FAN status.

A) Get Gregg Giannotti over from CBS Radio to WFAN. Boomer and Giannotti works. Not just because 'Gregg' sounds enough like 'Craig'...but because GG is enough like CC to run a morning show. Who else over there has the balls to eviscerate Mike Francesa & most of the staff the way Carton does/did? Esiason has the sports cred but he cannot run the show. He's even uncomfortable running incoming phone calls. If it doesn't turn out that Craig was duped and he's gone? You get GG in there stat. Hell - get him in there Monday morning.

Get rid of Al Dukes and Jerry Recco. Get a fresh producer and update person for the fresh new look to boot. The show was tired before the arrest.

KD adds: Morning shows are different. Everybody wakes up miserable. Dragging ass to work. They want to be cheered up.

B) Do not make an over the top offer to Mike Francesa. He's tired. He's boring. "I don't even listen to Mike at all anymore," is a common listener refrain. Move sweaty Brandon Tierney in there 12/18/17. Tierney is just a notch below Giannotti on the humor side. Strong sports guy perfect for afternoon arguments. And if you can get Sid Rosenberg...get him. They'd work perfectly together. If Sid is unavailable -- find somebody else eventually. 5+ hours is a lot for one person every day. Rosenberg is the ideal. Kim Jones, great.

Here's a little note we wrote: Craig Carton, if not completely exonerated, will have the country's top podcast. Book it. (Oh, and the title here is fugazi. WFAN might stink but...WEPN will always be worse.)
