Did Francesa spike the "Mike's On!" song? He thought it was too girly yesterday.
Edit: Guess not. God, is it awful.
Granted, I do not listen to WFAN regularly (only when I happen to be in the NY area), but the overall production value on the station seems incredibly subpar. It's downright "cartoonish" in a lot of respects.
Again, I can't speak too fluently about many of the station's on-air personalities, but why hasn't New York experienced a similar occurrence to what's happened here in Boston over the past 2.5 years? The situations seem to be pretty similar. The New York market could definitely support two sports talk stations, the afternoon drive host on the FAN is loathed by many and has a belated ego, a lot of the regular hosts are atrocious (the few times I've listened to "Joe and Evan" I've had the turn it off after about 5 minutes), AM signal, etc. Like Boston, it seems like ESPN radio is failing there, but why doesn't Entercom or another company start an FM station to challenge CBS' WFAN just like CBS did here with "The Sports Hub" challenging EEI? It would seem to make perfect sense.
