NYC Radio: Prank Calls New Challenge For Screeners

Here's a new challenged for show producers.

WFAN 660 AM /101.9 FM's Mike Francesa got a caller Tuesday who identified himself as "Arthur In Hoboken".  When he got on-air (to talk about Missouri's Michael Sam coming out), the caller played an audio clip of comedian Arte Lange.  And Franseca didn't realize it.

Last week someone else called in as "Mike in Manhattan" last week and played a clip of Francesa right back to the host.

And a similar caller ended up on Chris "Mad Dog" Russo's Sirius XM show. A copy-cat or a serial prankster?
