Sports talk radio personalities are always happy to talk with first-time callers who have listened for years. But Craig Carton's first experience with a "first time, long time" devotee may be something he hopes to soon forget about.
These were the words out of Judge Colleen McMahon's mouth before putting the disgraced radio host in the hands of federal custody.
Carton, formerly of WFAN's "Boomer and Carton" show, was ultimately sentenced to three-and-a-half years in prison
Now it is Judge McMahon's turn: "Good afternoon Mr. Carton. Colleen from New York. First time, long time..." AMAZING— Pete Brush (@PeteBrush) April 5, 2019
Carton, a co-host at New York's WFAN for a decade, claims his unlawful actions were fueled by a gambling addiction. His sentence was reduced down to three years because of Judge McMahon's belief that Carton has "done a lot of good in this world" before his crime.
