Boomer Esiason officially began life without his professional partner of 10 years early Thursday morning, less than 12 hours after the resignation of Craig Carton, in a WFAN studio scrubbed of Carton’s name and memorabilia.
Overnight, the “Boomer and Carton Show” had been re-branded, “The Morning Show with Boomer.”
Shortly after 6 a.m., Esiason addressed on the air Carton’s departure, one week after his arrest by federal authorities, saying he endorsed Carton’s focus on dealing with his legal situation and removing a distraction from the station.
“I think it’s a good move for Craig, and I think for he and his family he has got to focus supremely on that; that’s the one thing that he has to take care of, and that’s the one thing we want him to do,” Esiason said.
“We want him and his family to get through this, and he’s going to put all of his energy into that, and by resigning I believe he takes a lot of pressure off of all of us here at WFAN, his co-workers and everything else. I heard the statement from (station vice president) Mark Chernoff and I don’t know what else to say. He’s got to get his life in order. He’s got to get it right.
