NYC Radio: Chris Christie To Sub For Mike Francesa
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie will get two chances next week to test out Mike Francesa's time slot.
According to nj.com, Christie is scheduled to help fill in for Francesa on Monday and Tuesday when the host takes a vacation from his afternoon drive-time show on New York City sports-talk radio station WFAN 660 AM / 101.9 FM, the station confirmed on Thursday.
"We are trying him next week for two days paired with Evan Roberts," said Mark Chernoff, the station's program director.
Christie will co-host the timeslot with Roberts, a WFAN personality, from 2-6:30 p.m. on both days, according to the station's website. Roberts usually co-hosts the slot before Francesa.
Brian Murray, a spokesman for Christie's office, confirmed that the governor has been asked on the show.
The guest spot further fuels speculation that the brash-talking governor, whose final term runs out in January, is a possible replacement for Francesa, the iconic voice who is leaving his show on WFAN in December.
