WFAN New York Sports Radio Host Craig Carton Arrested for $5.6 Million Ticket Scam


WFAN radio talk show host Craig Carton (pictured right) has been arrested on conspiracy and securities fraud charges.

The 48-year-old “Boomer & Carton” co-host was taken into custody by the FBI at his Manhattan apartment Wednesday morning. He is apparently charged in a fraudulent ticket-selling scam that netted over $2 million. Carton is in his 10th year hosting mornings on WFAN with former NFL quarterback Boomer Esiason.

Esiason addressed the arrest during the broadcast saying, “I’m taken aback and surprised by it just like I’m sure everybody else is. I have no other information, there’s nothing else I can say. I thought he called in sick this morning, but unfortunately my partner was arrested.”
