“It’s not our style to brag. We all do a good job, we all work really hard, we’re just happy to come to work, tripling you,” Carton said.

WFAN afternoon co-host Craig Carton was beaten to a story by Andrew Marchand of The New York Post about the New York Yankees moving their Friday broadcast — originally scheduled for Amazon Prime Video — to YES Network as Aaron Judge continues to chase the American League single season home run record. Carton then said Marchand probably got the notice from YES Network announcer Michael Kay, who Carton sarcastically called Marchand’s “best friend”.

“That’s why there’s always articles about Michael in the paper, because he and Marchand got together to try to unseat us as number one. It’s not gonna happen, but that’s what they’re in cahoots on.”

Carton then pointed out YES Network had tweeted about the high ratings for recent Yankee broadcasts, including Tuesday’s game being the highest-watched game since Derek Jeter’s final game. He then sarcastically noted discussing ratings is something he’d never do.

“Bragging about ratings is so beneath us. Every day for the last year and a half, we’ve been number one,” Carton jokingly said before bragging about the show’s top spot in the ratings. “It’s not our style to brag. We all do a good job, we all work really hard, we’re just happy to come to work, tripling you,” Carton said. “I’m just kidding! We’re just having fun! Can’t we all just get along and not be so sensitive and insecure?

“We’re having a good time — we’re number one — I just don’t understand why people can’t — we’re number one — enjoy our thing while they do their thing — we’re number one — and listen chips fall where they fall, no one is getting fired — we’re not ’cause we’re number one — and reality is that this is supposed to be fun — we’re number one — and I don’t understand why this isn’t fun for everybody. We’re number one. Let’s all put our cards on the table — we’re number one and you’re not — and just let it all go! That’s all!”

In the spring ratings period, Carton & Roberts topped The Michael Kay Show by a 6.3 to 3.2 margin. During the winter ratings period, Carton & Roberts were a 5.7 rating with The Michael Kay Show garnering a 4.5 rating. Kay called Carton “very nasty and rude” saying it “doesn’t sit well” with the ESPN New York host earlier this summer in a story with NJ.com.

The United States has been eliminated from the 2022 World Cup, and FOX Sports Radio host Doug Gottlieb believes that will return the sport back to its usual place inside the sports media landscape.

“I’m sure people in the soccer world are still talking about the World Cup,” Gottlieb said on his In The Bonus podcast Monday. “But zero people I know in real life are talking about the World Cup today.

“You can tell me how big soccer is in the world — and I’m not gonna dispute it — and you can tell me we’re doing better in the world than we’ve ever done — and I’m not gonna dispute it, it’s fine — but the fact is that as soon as that match was over we went from a couple of hours of soccer guy, or writer guy who’s really a soccer guy at heart, talking about should we change coaches, tactics, players, or whatever, and then it’s over. I don’t know who won and I don’t care.”

Gottlieb later added that soccer has been “the sport of the future” for his entire life, but added that college basketball is going on right now, and it isn’t on the national sports radar, either.

94WIP afternoon host Jon Marks has revealed he is working without a contract.

A report from CrossingBroad.com claims Marks mentioned the development on the air two weeks ago, and Marks confirmed the news when the outlet asked him for comment.

He did not, however, wish to say much more about the situation. WIP is currently in the midst of changes to its lineup due to the upcoming departure of legendary morning host Angelo Cataldi.

In late October, the station announced the current midday show of Joe DeCamara and Jon Ritchie would replace Cataldi in the mornings. Longtime morning co-host Al Morganti will remain with the station but will no longer be heard in mornings once DeCamara and Ritchie take over. Anchor Rhea Hughes will stay in the morning timeslot.

The station has yet to name a new midday show to replace DeCamara and Ritchie. Marks is currently teamed with former NFL linebacker Ike Reese from 2:00-6:00 PM. The two were paired together in 2017.

Monday Night Football got off to an energetic start last night, with the usually reserved Joe Buck showcasing an exuberant attitude while discussing the weather and the fact that the calendar has already flipped to December. WFAN morning host Boomer Esiason wondered if there was an ulterior motive to Buck’s raucous start.

In addition to the energy exuded by the Monday Night Football announcer, Buck nearly howeld in excitement as the network showcased Tom Brady’s usual scream of “Let’s F—ing Go!”, by shouting “Yeah! Let’s go! I can’t say one of those words!”

The excitement was noticed by Boomer & Gio update anchor Jerry Recco who played the audio for the show, with Boomer Esiason wondering if Buck was proving a point to someone.

“Maybe somebody told him he was too downcast the previous broadcast,” Esiason wondered. “Maybe he was doing that emphatically because somebody criticized him as flat or something.”
