I give that show 6 months max
They should just move Benigno and Evan Roberts to the afternoon

the third with Continent and Bart Scott is someone named Maggie Gray. No clue who she is....

SethFromAstoria : 11/13/2017 9:45 pm : link
Is better than most. JJ, although I disagree with him frequently, is a good version of Joe b Before he started to suck.

Bart Scott, Chris Carlin and other is WFAN doing their rendition of local host (Alan hahn/Dave Rothenberg), black local former athlete (Chris Canty) and a third probably other athlete. Chris simms is absolutely horrible. WFAN should have thought outside the box and put Katie Nolan on the air. She's too wild for old men driving home i guess but Bart Scott won't last... And the continued trend of ny radio personalities who know nothing ablut one of the 4 major sports continues
Bart Scott doesn't know anything  
Ten Ton Hammer : 11/13/2017 9:56 pm : link
so I bet he'll have a job forever.
If they really want ratings  
Bchurch : 11/13/2017 10:22 pm : link
They should say fuck it and hire back Carton... hell... let him broadcast from jail...
So it's Carlin, Scott and someone named Maggie Gray  
Bobby Humphrey's Earpad : 11/13/2017 10:30 pm : link
which will be awful, but again this is the same company that picked David Lee Roth to succeed Howard Stern.

Kim Jones AND Max Kellerman turned them down. They are literally trotting out their fourth and fifth choices.

Begs the question whether Beningo and Roberts chose to stay together at 10-2 rather than be broken up.
Kay and LaGreca  
chopperhatch : 11/13/2017 10:33 pm : link

Yep. They might take over the ratings in that timeslot now. And if that is what WFAN is going to trot out there in that timeslot, WFAN deserves to get destroyed in that timeslot. That show will suck.

That 2 to 6 slot looks terrible.  
St. Jimmy : 11/14/2017 6:07 am : link
Philly sports talk has gone through this where they replace long time hosts or stations trying to find the right host. It is a long process. WIP hasn't had an afternoon drive time host in it seems like 10 years. It took 97.5 years to arrive at Mike Missanelli.

boomer talks hockey. Kay and lagreca talk hockey. Back in the day when I had to get up at dawn to hop on the subway for work, Robin Lundberg on ESPN talked hockey, as did Dave rothenberg.
I'm going to listen first  
EddieNYG : 11/14/2017 7:29 am : link
Before making up my mind.

Seems irrational to do otherwise.
Kim Jones and Carlin would have been much better. And why have 3? So  
Victor in CT : 11/14/2017 8:04 am : link
they can all talk over each other? 3 in a booth never works.

Joe and Evan 10-2 makes sense. Nobody will ever do 5 1/2 hours again. Especially solo.

I didn't realize that Gianotti has become just another vulgarian. He semed like he had promise when he was Bro and Evan's producer.

Mike being gone will be a big void.

A few things  
arniefez : 11/14/2017 8:23 am : link
Greg G is awful. Not never listen awful like Carton but a snorefest who doesn't have any thing to add about sports.

The 2-6 is worse than the Kay show and that's hard to do. There is no reason to ever listen to Bart Scott for even 5 minutes.

I think FAN made a good decision not moving Roberts to afternoon drive right now. Beningo wouldn't work there but he's not going to be around much longer. FAN needs to find a partner for Roberts who is a Yankee and Giant fan and as invested in sports as Roberts. Someone around the same age and when 2-6 fails in a year or less move those two to drive time. But if they wait too long they'll lose the ratings battle and might not be able to reverse it.

Maggie Gray ó who the Daily News first reported on Monday as the third member of the team ó as its new afternoon drive team replacing Francesa when he departs the station on Dec. 15.

Just saw this. I'm done with FAN in the afternoon. 3 in the booth, think ESPN Sunday night baseball. Unlistenable.

My original idea of Max Kellerman and Kim Jones would have been great. Carlin and Jones would have been okay too. This will be a disaster.

+10000 on Kellerman and Jones. Not sure if their styles would jive, but I like them both and would love to give that show a shot.

Why is it impossible to get Kellerman back to NYC radio

JFC neer is the auditory equivalent of watching paint dry. I have never heard something so boring in my life, and would have a visceral reaction of dissapointment when I would turn on the FAN on the weekends and have to listen to his boring ass show/voice.

Not bombastic enough for weeksdays? He's not interesting enough for radio (his rock DJ days notwithstanding - I know nothing about those so I can't comment on that)

Then again, I have a feeling you and I are not the same target demographic, lol.

What some people call the auditory equivalent of watching paint dry is what other people call not bombastic enough for weekday afternoons. He's knowledgeable, which is more important to me than rants.

Good question re Kellerman. Article says he was offered the job but declined. Maybe because of the 3 man format?

He's not bombastic enough for 7 AM on a Saturday and talks nothing more else besides baseball. Also, his voice is sleep inducing, and hit in a home-y, cozy, Schmooze/Sommers way
