WFAN Fails the First Grade

So the folks at WFAN finally looked around and realized that, hey, our new morning personalities, "Boomer and Carton,” are debuting in less than a week! But we still haven’t put up their bios on the website! Nor anything else to even remotely suggest that they will be replacing Imus! (Other than an initial press release!)

But they finally put up the bios of Craig Carton and Boomer Esaison, on the big WFAN Personalities page. And, of course, there are already problems.

The various personalities are listed in alphabetical order. At one point, the bios go thusly:

  • Tracy Burgess

  • Craig Carton

  • Tim Capstraw

  • Chris Carlin

  • Chris Carrino

  • Ed Coleman

Maybe it’s because I’ve had to proofread my friends' papers for years…but I already know they don’t care about Craig Carton, because they didn’t properly put his name in alphabetical order. Carton should go between “Carrino” and “Coleman,” not “Burgess” and “Capstraw.”

But at least we know they care about Boomer Esaison - he’s placed nicely between “Ian Eagle” and “Mike Francesa.”

(Oh, and for the record, “Adrienne Watson” is listed before “Joey Wahler.” Did Don Imus take all the proofreaders with him?)

EDIT: As of this afternoon, 8/29/07, WFAN has corrected the alphabet mistakes. Good job outta them.

College Girl,

I can't find Larry Kenney at the WFAN, do you know what happened to him? Larry Kenney has been with Imus for along time.

Laree, I'm really not sure. I assume that they stopped using him after Imus was fired. TIme will tell if he shows up on the new Imus in the Morning reincarnation.

Coincidentally, I just posted an old-school compilation of some of his older Imus stuff from the early '80s. It's in the post right above this one.

What about rest of Boomer team? Who will be newsman, Who will be engineer?
