What the heck is going on with Mike Francesa and WFAN?

What the heck is going on with Mike Francesa and WFAN?

Andrew Marchand of the New York Post reported that Carlin, Gray and Scott will not be let go by the station. Although this may just be spin, he added that it makes business sense to welcome Francesa back into the WFAN fold, even if it has its awkward moments.

It's been a insane day in the world of NY media with reports that radio host Mike Francesa would return to WFAN just four months removed from him retiring from the sports radio station.

"Mike Francesa so badly wanted to return to WFAN, he approached upper management of the radio's parent company, Entercom, and accepted a "significant pay cut" compared to his previous salary, according to sources". Raisman reports that Francesa's new show will run from 3 p.m.to 7 p.m., with the 10-3 shift divided between the Carlin-Gray-Scott and Benigno-Roberts teams.

"WFAN confirms that we are in ongoing discussions with Mike Francesa about the possibility of him returning to the station", a statement from the station said.




"Francesa's new show is expected to run from 3-6:30 p.m. each weekday". The hard feelings are hardly surprising: Late last month, Francesa and Chris Russo, his longtime co-host who has since moved on to his own SiriusXM channel, poked fun at WFAN's struggling ratings. He repeatedly said "no more FAN", insinuating he was done with the station for good.

Francesa's return to WFAN's afternoon drive is imminent, according to The New York Daily News.

Raissman says Chris Carlin, Maggie Gray and Bart Scott, the trio that replaced Francesa, will split the 10 a.m.to 3 p.m. hours with Joe Benigno and Evan Roberts, who now occupy most of that time on WFAN. "It is time to return to WFAN".
