NJ Gov. Chris Christie To Co-Host WFAN’s Boomer & Carton Show Friday

NEW YORK (WFAN) — First it was former New York Governor David Paterson guest hosting on WFAN. On Friday morning, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie will step up to the mic.

Christie, a frequent caller to the Boomer & Carton program, will talk sports and take calls alongside Craig Carton from 6-10 a.m.

“Big shoes to fill tomorrow morning with Boomer Esiason out for the day,” said WFAN operations manager Mark Chernoff. “Should be lots of fun!”

“It’s a big get right? He and I have been friends for a long time, although he doesn’t admit that anymore,” Carton joked on Thursday.

LISTEN: For one day only, Carton & Christie

Christie, a die-hard Mets fan, knows his stuff. Just take a look at his early-season assessment of the Amazin’s.

“There will be moments when they’ll be really good, and we’re going to feel momentarily excited,” Christie said at a press conference last month. “And then there are going to be seven- or eight-game losing streaks where we’re not going to want to turn the TV on.”

The governor also puts on his rooting cap for the Knicks, Rangers and… the Dallas Cowboys?

“Believe me, it doesn’t get me anything political around here because the Giants fans hate me, the Eagles fans hate me, it doesn’t matter,” he told the Newark Star-Ledger in a lengthy sports-related interview last June. “But you grow up rooting for a team. That’s just the way it works.”

What would you ask the governor? Let us know in the comments below…

    Mark Chernoff is the same person who lived on Central Road Apt. 1F? I grew up next door Apt. 1E.

    I can’t believe the Fan is going to allow this bully on it’s radio station. I guess if the Gov. was taking Carton’s career away from him I’m sure the last thing he would want is to listen to him on the way to work. I’m done with the fan….

  • Mike P.

    Mike had Gov. Patterson on his show, so why can’t they have the governor of NJ on? Because he is in the GOP? Get over it.
