Chris Carlin to leave WFAN, join SNY
Chris Carlin, a fixture at WFAN for the past 13 years - first as a producer for "Mike and the Mad Dog" and later as an on-air personality - will leave when his contract expires in two weeks and join SNY full time, an industry source familiar with his plans said.
Carlin served as a morning update man for both Don Imus and the show that replaced it, starring Craig Carton and Boomer Esiason, while also hosting a 5 a.m. to 6 a.m. show and serving as a fill-in host at other times of the day.
He has been the co-host of two SNY shows, "Loudmouths" and "Beer Money." He is expected to continue with those shows and add other appearances.
He also is expected to continue in his role as the radio play-by-play man for Rutgers football and basketball.
Carlin's last scheduled show at WFAN is Friday morning, Jan. 2, alongside Kim Jones.
(UPDATE: It appears the New York Radio Message Board first reported this Friday night.)
