ONE OF US! Carlin to WFAN afternoon slot

ONE OF US! Carlin to WFAN afternoon slot

by Darren Meenan November 15, 2017 0 Comments

Chris Carlin is headed back to New York. It's been speculated for a couple weeks, but it's now official. After saying farewell to SNY just last November to take a gig in Philly, Chris will be taking over the afternoon spot on WFAN.

I really have no idea what to expect from this trio, but I'm excited to give it a shot. That hasn't stopped the critics from coming out already, dissing the move before the show even starts on January 2nd. And if you're a huge Mongo, I can understand the hesitation. But nobody really knows what will work or not until it gets rolling.

I enjoy Carlin, he's been around the block, got his start as an intern on WFAN back in '95, and has been down with T7LA since the start. I assume he'll be in the power chair. Not sure where Maggie and Bart's allegiance lies, but Carlin is one of us. Not saying I want a total homer on the airwaves, but it'll be a nice change of pace listening to the afternoon show without the constant Mets bashing. At least it'll be objective, funny, and fair.

Even though it's the radio the home of the Yankees since 2015 WFAN is now generally run by Mets fans. Carlin, Boomer, Al, Eddie, Schmooze, Joe and Evan all roll with the orange and blue. At the very least, we could all be pretty happy about that. 

"I used to drive around delivering for Hassler's Pharmacy in New Jersey listening to Mike and the Mad Dog, and now I get a chance to be in that slot," Chris said. "I fully expect to be hated for quite some time."

At least he's realistic. But that's what dreams are made of right there. 

Good luck and congrats to Chris, Maggie, and Bart. Do you.
