They were gonna fire him and he preferred  
shockeyisthebest8056 : 9/13/2017 8:10 pm : link
to say he resigned?
I am wondering if Carton paid off his gambling debts  
Ben in Tampa : 9/13/2017 8:16 pm : link
Or if he still owes big money.

If he doesn't go to jail, he'll probably be whacked

"You cant fire me. I quit!"
Whether the allegations are true is irrelevant  
aimrocky : 9/13/2017 8:35 pm : link
I'm a fan of the show so this news stings, although it was bound to happen.
a bit of an asshat here  
Matt in SGS : 9/13/2017 8:37 pm : link
but he's screwed. This is going to end up taking down others at WFAN in management because some of these associates were in the offices (in Carton's office) doing this stuff. Don't be shocked to see some of the suits out the door too. They have been looking for salary to cut with the mergers going on and this is going to sweep out a bunch.
I don't get why that station gets so much attention

God they're all awful
Please oh please

let Chris Christie's name be in a notebook or email somewhere.
I wonder what was up with the timing  
jcn56 : 9/13/2017 8:43 pm : link
Why resign now? Other than taking the high road, which I can't imagine him doing - why would he resign rather than force them to fire him?
Jim Gearhart and Geno Smith...

both throwing dirt on his grave. Others sure to come soon!
5 years too late...

...this douche bag promised to quit if the Giants won the superbowl back in 2012. Good riddance.

Can you further us in any details?

I listen to the WFAN ALOT as I drive for a living, been listening to B&C for 10 years and am stunned by this.
Best news ever

Carton sucks

Statement from Geno Smith..

Same guy who was calling me a thug on some lame radio station was running a Ponzi scheme?? Funny how life works, can't believe these fools!
Be curious to see where they go..  
Sean : 9/13/2017 9:17 pm : link
I could see Boomer bowing out as well since his schedule is so busy. I think you need a little edge in the morning, so a vanilla hire like Recco wouldn't work IMO.

Al Dukes response to Geno was hilarious.

Says the suspension of Zeke Elliot should go through a court system and that the commissioner shouldn't have the absolute power to suspend one of his employees unless he is proven guilty.

I wanted to call in and say well why isn't Carton on air with you now? Didn't WFAN just suspend him and he hasn't been proven guilty yet?
Total dick.  
SFGFNCGiantsFan : 9/13/2017 10:01 pm : link
He mocked women with postpartum depression, which my wife experienced after our first child.

Screw him. Seriously.

Really can't, but the authorities are going thru emails on the WFAN servers and all other communications. The Borgata trips were all coordinated by Carton.
unfounded?

It's weird - even awful takes that no one really wants, seem to get a lot of attention. It's the same on a message board, too. I bet even your Uncle Clint knows that.

Obvious from the beginning - he was suspended until they could find out how great the damage was. And it's sizeable - Borgata, Brooklyn Sports & Entertainment / Nets, the charity - and that's only what we know. Don't forget he sponsored and vehemently defended FanDuel.

To say he mocked is an understatement. It was totally ugly.
He's so innocent that he quits his job?

Chris,
I don't know the history between Carton and Gearhart. Was there some bashing happening there?

I really enjoyed Gearhart's show while he was on NJ 101.5
I couldn't stand Carton for more than 1 second.

I am so pleased Carton is gone from WFAN.

Yeah, how'd that work out for ya Mr. High-Roller? "Vegas baby!!!"

What a dickbrain.

The program this morning, if anyone watched it on T.V. They took down anything with Boomer and Carton on it. Including all images of Carton. Boomer even pointed it out at the beginning of the show.
Not that I care at all for carton

but it's kinda sleazy to see the company dump him in the trash immediately like they're so above his level when they had no problem riding his degenerate douchebaggery for years all the way to nice paid sponsorships and ratings.
