Game Time with Boomer Esiason, which launched last September as a television show, now has a podcast partner in Entercom’s RADIO.COM. The podcast partnership furthers Esiason’s relationship with Entercom, which owns WFAN, where he’s co-hosted a morning radio show since 2007.

The TV show features one-on-one interviews with some of the world’s most compelling sports and entertainment personalities. Game Time airs as a weekly 30-minute show, but without TV commercials, the RADIO.COM podcast version lasts about 20 minutes. 

“When I was approached to do this show and they talked about a podcast partner, I made sure RADIO.COM was the media outlet to work with, as it aligns with my radio relationship within the Entercom family,” Esiason said in the press release. “I love the show because it gives you a personal insight into the personality I am interviewing, and the conversation is more about the person’s life as opposed to just his sports career.”

A longtime media member, Esiason retired from the NFL in 1997, currently serving as a longtime contributor to CBS’ The NFL Today and co-host of WFAN’s morning radio show.  Two years ago, Esiason ended his tenure as an analyst for Westwood One’s coverage of Monday Night Football and prior to this season, the former quarterback left Showtime’s Inside the NFL.  All along the way, Esiason continues working to find a cure for cystic fibrosis, the disease which his 28-year old son lives with.

Every Saturday morning, a new episode of Game Time will be available to listeners via the RADIO.COM app. Current podcast episodes feature interviews with pro-golfer Brandt Snedeker and NFL Hall-of-Famer Marshall Faulk. Future Game Time podcasts include conversations with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and baseball Hall-of-Famers John Smoltz and Jeff Bagwell.

John Jastremski Fires Back After Craig Carton Criticism

“I’m not listening to a crook. So you know what? Go take a f—ing hike. How about that.”

Earlier this week, WFAN afternoon host Craig Carton said John Jastremski — a former WFAN host now hosting a podcast for The Ringer — “shunned” his radio career advice.

During his New York New York podcast Thursday, Jastremski strongly condemned Carton’s remarks.

“I don’t like going here with this stuff, ’cause I know this plays right into what this guy likes to do,” Jastremski said. “This is his M.O. This is what he’s done his entire career. It’s what he’s done for his entire career and he’s had success doing it. He lives for this stuff. But it really set me off. It set me off because I gotta see it on Barrett Sports Media while I’m on vacation. Like I wanna be bothered with this shit, number one. Number two, it’s just tone-deaf, insulting, and flat-out rude every which way.

“Number one: going after people who work at McDonald’s? Who the hell are you to do that? Number two: You’re insulting a multi-billion dollar company where I work. I have a great job, a great platform, a great producer. I have two great jobs, I might add. And you’re insulting both of them. By the way, you’re on that network. Five days a week. And you’re insulting that network. How stupid are you? Taking shots at people of the network you’re on, I’m on. And I could tell you, it pays well. I do ok.

“As for career advice? Guess what? I listen to legends. Bill Simmons, you ever hear of him? Worth a lot more than you. Mike Francesa? My boy Adam Schein? I listen to those guys. I’m not listening to a crook. So you know what? Go take a f—ing hike. How about that.”

Calling Carton a crook harkens back to the WFAN afternoon host’s stint in federal prison for participating in a ponzi scheme that scammed investors out of $5.6 million that he in turn used to pay off gambling debts. Carton was sentenced to three-and-a-half years in prison before serving just over a year in prison before being released in 2020.
