Even if they do hire Carton, his act doesn't play in afternoon drive. Mornings were always a different animal on WFAN because of Imus - Boomer & Carton were able to do less sports and more "other stuff" because of that history in the time slot. But middays and afternoon drive are about sports on WFAN... recapping the last game, previewing the next one, and discussing the latest sports news. CM&B failed in part for trying to break that formula - no one was interested in pop culture trivia when basketball and hockey were in mid-season. Unless Carton agrees to change his shtick to play to the sports fan instead of the shock jock fan, he wouldn't last in afternoon drive.
