Watch the surreal moment Boomer Esiason announced to WFAN’s listeners that Craig Carton had been arrested.
Wednesday, news broke that WFAN radio host Craig Carton, who is partnered with Boomer Esiason every morning, had been arrested for his involvement in a $5 million ponzi scheme hatched to help cover his gambling losses. Carton, who has worked with Esiason since 2007, was arrested at 4 AM ET at his Manhattan home on charges of fraud.
Esiason originally reported that Carton was “out sick” early in his show. Eventually, he was given real information.

It’s unclear what WFAN will do with Boomer & Carton, but it’s safe to say that the radio host has a lot more to worry about right now than his career.
