Chris Christie, WFAN Morning Man

On sports radio, he pines for the appellation "Little League Baseball Hall of Famer."

The Governor & Carton. That was the modified line-up this morning on WFAN-AM’s popular morning drive-time show Boomer & Carton featuring Boomer Esiason and Craig Carton.

The Honorable Chris Christie sat in for Esiason, covering a range of topics starting with the New York Mets. After the last seven days, the Governor of New Jersey is probably feeling mighty happy to be occupying a WFAN chair rather than the GOP one he was in the running for.

As Asbury Park Press State House bureau chief Dustin Racioppi reminds, this is not the first time Christie has hit these airwaves:

Christie, an avid sports fan, occasionally fills in to co-host the show, which airs weekdays from 6 a.m. to 10 a.m. Invariably the discussion goes into personal or political territory, putting the governor in headlines. Christie addressed as much when Carton probed him on his personal life Friday.

“This is why my people say to me, ‘You’re doing the show again? Great,’” Christie said.

Ha ha. The podcast of Christie’s appearance is already up. The Governor, who we are all used to seeing on The Tonight Show and elsewhere, comes across even better on the older medium. Christie has got a great radio voice.
