At the end of the year, Mike Francesa’s tenure with WFAN will come to an end after an incredible run of 30 years.

It’s been quite the ride for ol’ Mike, but there’s a big name who could be waiting in the wings to take over a prime spot on the biggest radio market in the country.

WFAN’s program director, Mark Chernoff, told NorthJersey.com that New Jersey Governor Chris Christie is among “plenty of candidates” the station is considering for the role.

The N.J. Governor has some recent experience behind the microphone as he’s become a frequent co-host of the “Boomer and Carton Show.”

Christie has said that he doesn’t believe his future will be in Washington D.C. in President Donald Trump’s administration and is set to leave office just three weeks after Francesa will sign off of WFAN for the final time.
