Boomer's successful career as an NFL quarterback spanned 14 years with the Cincinnati Bengals, New York Jets and Arizona Cardinals. The four-time Pro Bowl selection was named the NFL's Most Valuable Player in 1988 and awarded the Walter Payton Man of the Year Award in 1995 for his philanthropic work.
Boomer has raised in excess of $80 million for the Boomer Esiason Foundation to fight cystic fibrosis since 1993, when his son was diagnosed with the disease.
Upon retirement from the NFL, Esiason made his debut as an analyst for ABC’s “Monday Night Football” broadcasts. He is currently studio analyst on CBS Sports’ The NFL Today pre-game show and calls Monday Night Football, Playoff and Super Bowl broadcasts for the Westwood One radio network. In addition, Esiason hosted “The Boomer Esiason Show” on MSG for seven years.
Carton has spent nearly 20 years in the broadcast industry since beginning his career in 1991. After moving to various stations around the country, with notable stops in Buffalo, Cleveland, Philadelphia, Denver, New York and New Jersey, Carton returned to his hometown to co-host WFAN’s morning show.
During the course of his radio career, he has been recognized by Philly Magazine in their 30 Under 30 issue, and was ranked as high as No. 9 on Politicsnj.com’s 2007 Power List of New Jersey’s most politically influential personalities. At the time, Carton could be heard afternoons on NJ 101.5.
