Report: Gov. Christie considered as possible replacement for WFAN’s Mike Francesa

Gov. Chris Christie may be heard permanently on the airwaves once his term as governor is up in January.



NorthJersey.com reports that the governor is being considered as a possible replacement for sports radio station WFAN's Mike Francesa, once the longtime host's contract ends.



Program director Mark Chernoff told the paper that Christie is among "plenty of candidates" being considered for the position.



"I would certainly at least want to consider him," Chernoff told the paper. "If he's interested and we're interested, it's worth pursuing."



Christie is no stranger to sports radio. He is a frequent guest on the "Boomer and Carton" show, which also airs on the station.



News 12 New Jersey has reached out to the governor's office for comment but has not yet heard back.
