Carton (Boomer and Carton WFAN-CBS Sports Network) arrested by FBI

According to the AP he was arrested by the FBI for a Ponzi scheme ticket selling scam worth 5 million dollars.

According to Felger and Mazz(Boston Sports Hub) he makes 2 million dollars a year co-hosting the WFAN New York morning show and is in millions of dollars in gambling debt.

Don't know what will happen to the show since it is simulcast on CBS Sports Network weekdays from 6-10am

No surprise, he resigned:

For 10 years Iíve had the great privilege of showing up to work every day at my dream job. I have nothing but love and respect for my co-host, the show and the entire CBS Radio family and Iíve always tried to represent them in the best possible light.

Unfortunately, the unfounded legal issues currently plaguing me will only be a distraction to everyone at WFAN and the show I helped build. With that in mind, I have submitted my resignation to the station and they accepted. I am sad to see this chapter of my life close but know that it will allow me to focus on my family, my well-being and clearing my name, while giving the show the best opportunity to succeed without further disruption.

Iíve always felt a personal connection to our listeners and want to thank them for making me a part of their daily routine. I hope they can respect the fact that as much as I want to talk about the allegations against me I canít at this time. There will come a time when I will be able to speak directly about the case and I hope our listeners will be there.

From the bottom of my heart, Iíd like to thank my family, friends, listeners and especially the executives at WFAN and CBS Radio for their continued understanding and for giving me the most amazing platform to do what I love to do the most, besides being with my family.

This pompous ass worked here in Philly in the mid 90's on our Flagship Sports Talk Radio WIP. I never liked the guy and sadly his success created more Craig Carton clones in the industry which eventually led me to stop listening altogether.
