Craig Carton, the WFAN star who is recovering from a gambling addiction, will be hosting a gambling show on WFAN on Saturday, he announced on Thursday.
The radio station is calling it “a responsible gambling show.” It will air Saturday mornings at 9:30 a.m. and be called, “Hello, my name is Craig.”
“1-800-GAMBLER” is partnering with WFAN on the show.
“They’re going to bring their expertise into it,” Carton said Thursday on his afternoon show, via Newsday. “I’ll tell the stories of gambling and the way my addiction manifested itself in the bad decisions I made, which became criminal.
“They’re the experts. They’re the ones that are going to walk us through what’s going on inside our noggin that makes us irrational and leads to an addiction.”
Carton, 51, has so far abstained from making NFL picks on Friday with afternoon drive partner Evan Roberts. He has said his problems with gambling led to his conviction on federal fraud charges that led to him spending a year in prison. He was released in June and recently returned to WFAN.
WFAN gave Carton a second chance as it looks to win the afternoon radio war with ESPN New York’s “The Michael Kay Show” after Mike Francesa’s second retirement. Roberts was paired with Carton after Joe Benigno retired.
