Craig Carton returning to terrestrial broadcast radio 5/29/18 in smaller 3 hour package

Craig Carton returning to broadcast radio May 29th

Carton will partner with Sports Byline USA and F360

New York, NY -- Beginning May 29, 2018 Craig Carton (who incredibly developed a case of the 'uhs' over the news) will be syndicated nationally from 9AM to 12PM. The partnership with CC, Sports Byline USA (America's Sports Talk Network) & F360, was announced today.

Infamous sports radio host Carton returns to broadcast radio and this time he’s going beyond New York with national syndication from Focus 360. Carton & Friends is a daily, three-hour program hosted by the preeminent morning sports radio talk show host and features free-flowing conversation about sports and pop culture. The show will air weekdays from 9am to noon Eastern. It debuts Tuesday, May 29th on the Sports Byline USA Network, which includes broadcast radio, the American Forces Network, and numerous digital platforms. (Stations interested in carrying Carton & Friends must contact Rob Magaziner at 917-580-6108 or

“We’re delighted to bring Craig Carton back to broadcast radio and be on his team,” noted Phil Brown, Chief Executive Officer of Focus 360. “Craig is a proven ratings winner with a huge fan base. This is a great opportunity for sports radio stations and for advertisers who want to reach an engaged audience. Welcome back, Craig Carton!”

Note - they couldn't care less about his on air team of amateurs.

Carton & Friends is produced by the FNTSY Sports Radio Network, a subsidiary of SportsGrid, Inc., which has been streaming the program since March 29th live and on demand on every major audio and video digital platform. The show is broadcast daily in front of a live audience from Rock & Reilly’s upscale gastropub across from Madison Square Garden in New York City.

SportsGrid, Inc. President, Louis M. Maione declared, “Craig is truly one of the great communicators. Adding the convenience of broadcast radio in local markets throughout the country is the final piece to our broad distribution strategy. Focus 360 and Sports Byline USA are the perfect partners for reintroducing Craig to broadcast radio and taking Carton & Friends nationally into local markets.”

Again, no mention of the amateur side kicks.

“We have always been committed to delivering quality sports programming to fans around the country and around the world,” said Darren Peck, President of Sports Byline USA. “We couldn’t be happier about offering our affiliates and platforms Craig Carton and his unique brand of sports radio.”

The Blitz has been told that the program remains a work in progress: "We're still working on it," a source told us when asked if changes to the current cast could occur. Which is good because only one of the two side kicks has shown any improvement at all since day 1.
