Garbage in, garbage out!

That’s the bottom line on New York’s WFAN planning to hire Chris Carlin away from Philly’s WIP for an afternoon show, according to the New York Daily News.

The expected addition of Carlin comes as Mike Francesa prepares to leave WFAN as originally scheduled on Dec. 15 and the subtraction of Craig Carton (above), who was arrested by the FBE!

Carton, a former WIP weekend host, was arrested by FBI agents in early September following an investigation into an alleged ticket resale scam. Prosecutors say the ex-radio host, who resigned from WFAN, bilked $5.6 million from investors to cover his gambling debts.
