Marc Malusis Thanks WFAN, Says He Will Still Be On Weekends

“WFAN has been my life and WFAN means the world to me.”

Marc Malusis was on the air on WFAN Sunday morning. It was the first time he had appeared on the station since the station announced Moose & Maggie would be replaced by Tiki & Tierney.

While the Sunday morning show is usually reserved for talking NFL football, Malusis did address the end of the weekday show and took the high road.

“Management made the decision to go with a new midday show, which is tough, but I do want to thank management — old and new, Chris [Oliviero], Spike [Eskin], Mark Chernoff — for the opportunity that I was afforded the last two years to do the midday show,” Malusis said. “I was the last to know, which is hard, but right now all I can control is what I do and how I respond, and I will. I want to thank everyone who reached out to me over the last few days. It was overwhelming. The love and support means more than you guys will ever know. I have not gotten back to everybody, but give me time, I will.”

WFAN listeners have heard Malusis on the station in some form or another for the last 21 years. He called the previous 72 hours “crazy,” but noted how lucky he was to have that kind of run on the station.

“I just want to say thank you to everyone out there that’s listened to me over the years. I’ve been here 21 years. WFAN has been my life and WFAN means the world to me.”

The New York Post made headline news out of the fact that Malusis did not mention his former partner Maggie Gray in his thanks. But to be fair to Malusis, Gray had a chance to talk about her future the day before. This was his turn. Just because she wasn’t mentioned is no reason to infer anything.

Gray will partner with Andrew Perloff of The Dan Patrick Show for a new afternoon drive show on CBS Sports Radio. Malusis says he will still be heard on WFAN, continuing his Sunday show with David Diehl. He and his bosses will figure out any other plans in the background.

Andrew Fillipponi: Peter Burns Made ‘Innocuous Joke’ To Ben Watson

“So wait a minute? Because you believe in Jesus Christ you care about your wife more than other people? What are you talking about?”

The on-air spat between SEC Network host Peter Burns and analyst Ben Watson continues to be bandied about in sports media circles, with 93.7 The Fan hosts Andrew Fillipponi and Chris Mueller discussing the topic Tuesday.

“I’m on Team Burns,” Fillipponi said.

“Forget who’s team you’re on,” Chris Mueller said. “I think you’ve do have to keep the wives and children out of this.”

“What are you talking about, keep the wives and out of it?!,” Fillipponi asked.

“Do we believe this is work or shoot here?,” Mueller wondered.

“Oh, I think this is real,” Fillpponi added, which Mueller agreed.

“Do you think a close fist from Ben Watson hit Peter Burns?,” Mueller asked.

“No, I think he picked him up by the lapels,” Fillipponi said.

When the subject of Watson’s religion was brought up, Fillipponi then pointed out the absurdity of the situation.

“So wait a minute? Because you believe in Jesus Christ you care about your wife more than other people? What are you talking about?”

“I think he might have a shorter fuse and not taking in humor that Peter Burns was giving out,” Mueller said.

“It was an innocuous joke!,” Fillipponi stated. “It wasn’t a joke! Why is it in bad taste?”

Mueller then added the idea of Watson’s wife texting Burns insinuates there’s an inappropriate relationship.

Craig Carton: Booger McFarland’s Zach Wilson Analysis ‘An Embarrasment’

Craig Carton

ESPN NFL analyst Booger McFarland raised eyebrows on Monday Night Countdown this week by saying New York Jets quarterback Zach Wilson has never been held accountable for his actions because he was a “young man who grew up with a lot of money”. WFAN afternoon host Craig Carton called out McFarland’s comments Tuesday as outlandish.

“It was an embarrasment,” Carton said. “Someone should ask Booger McFarland if his kids — who grew up with amazing wealth — have accountability in their lives or if having a little bit of money in your pocket immediately discounts the possibility to have accountability. He’s an idiot and we learned that last night.”

“It’s funny that Steve Young was on the other side of it,” Evan Roberts noted. “Because a long time ago, Steve Young criticized Chris Simms because he’s the son of a famous quarterback.”

“You don’t have to invent reasons for why Zach Wilson isn’t playing well,” added Carton. “Just watch his tape. He’s not playing well. Maybe he’s just not good!”

Carton later said NFL reporters “will try to make a name for themselves by putting out a story” about quarterbacks who take responsibility for their teams failures, while Wilson wouldn’t accept the blame.

“Be careful when you’re talking about somebody’s wife and their kids. ‘Cause not everybody jokes the same way.”

Peter Burns and Ben Watson shared an awkward exchange during the halftime show of an SEC Network football game over the weekend, and many are still debating whether Watson walking off the set was serious or not. Count part of the cast of The Greg Hill Show on WEEI as doubters.

“That was a a bit,” Courtney Cox said. “That was absolutely a bit.”

“Yeah, unlike the Chris Rock/Will Smith thing, I assume that was a bit,” Hill said. “I can’t believe that Ben Watson is really angry about that.”

“I dunno, man. There’s been a lot of speculation that it isn’t,” Jermaine Wiggins added. “There are people who are very sensitive about you clowning on them or joking with them. Especially with joking about their wife. Some people can’t handle jokes like that.”

After a back-and-forth with Cox about the legitimacy of the joke, Wiggins concluded by saying for some folks family is off limits.

“I’ve learned something in my 47 years on this Earth: be careful when you’re talking about somebody’s wife and their kids. ‘Cause not everybody jokes the same way.”
