Looks like WFAN may have two prime air slots open now instead of just one! 8)

Is it true that one of the top rated morning hosts in the Big Apple on one of the top billing stations in the entire country pulls down only $250k a year in salary??? I find that impossible to believe! (The NY Daily News claims his annual salary is only $250k. That is literally chump change!)

I would've assumed his annual salary at minimum would be in the upper six figures.

Apparently, he had a gambling addiction and owed unidentified casinos and "other parties" several million dollars. The NY Post article is the best of the bunch, IMO.

Radio's downfall has been under-investing in its core competency and becoming distracted by delusions of grandeur by thinking development of a half-assed national digital strategy will somehow put it on par with the Facebooks and Googles of the world.

Claim you are "mentally ill" because of the gambling debts. Get declared "innocent by reason of mental disease". Get back on the air within 6 months of being arrested. Worked before.

Big difference - Frank only got $503, but he did wield a gun...
Part of story not here - Bank teller identified Frank immediately, telling the police "I knew who it was. I watch him on TV every day."

Based on the all the articles I've read, it would appear Carton was/is involved in some very shady shit.
