Boomer Esiason has been at WFAN long enough and had enough success to be considered one of the station’s legends. That is why he and his Boomer & Gio castmates were shocked that former program director Mark Chernoff left them off of a list of the great talent he worked with at the station.

Chernoff was interviewed by Niel Best of Newsday for a column and video that came out on Monday. In it, Chernoff listed a series of current and former stars he either worked with at WFAN or brought to the station. In the list, he mentioned Evan Roberts twice and Craig Carton four times. It was something Esiason and Gregg Giannotti noticed and took exception to.

After a series of Esiason’s tongue-in-cheek complaints and Gio’s impressions of Chernoff, the former boss called in to defend himself Tuesday morning.

“I hate you,” Boomer said after Chernoff wished him a good morning.

Mark Chernoff said he was sorry that Boomer’s name did not come up more in the column. He assured the former quarterback that he did talk to Niel Best about the success of the morning show before they started recording.

“I don’t want my name ever coming out of your mouth again,” Esiason shot back.

Before he hung up, Mark Chernoff said that he was enjoying his work with 107.1 The Boss, where he is now the sports anchor on the station’s morning show and covering select swing shifts. He said that it has been like going back to the early days of his career.

Giannotti asked how the bosses at the New Jersey station reacted to Boomer & Gio playing his sports updates and reacting to them on air. He wondered if anyone there was upset.

“No,” Chernoff said. “It’s great publicity for 107.1 The Boss.”

Though there’s still some time before a finished products reaches bookshelves, but ESPN’s Paul Finebaum is reportedly set to get a nice six-figure advance by Penguin Press.

According to John Ourand of Sports Business Journal, Finebaum will make $700,000 plus royalties for the deep dive into the rivalry between the two SEC head coaches.

Back in the spring things came to a head between Alabama’s Nick Saban and Texas A&M’s Jimbo Fisher, as the two engaged in a verbal spat in separate press conferences over name, image and likeness.

Saban said Fisher and his staff utilized NIL and “bought every player” in the Aggies’ spring 2022 recruiting class.

Things got so heated and drew so many headlines that SEC commissioner Greg Sankey had to step in and try to get the former colleagues to cool it.

Finebaum is teaming up with Alabama beat reporter John Talty to write the book.

For the second year in a row, Ryan Kramer will draft 24 different teams over the course of a 24 hour marathon that will be streamed across multiple video platforms. 

“Fortunately, the analytics research is done so I can focus now on news coming out of the camps to sharpen my views and deliver the well-reasoned selections that people need to get an edge in their drafting,” Kramer said in a press release. “It’s a bit of an audacious undertaking, but the growing phenomenon of Fantasy Football deserves this level of commitment and our SGPN audiences always respond.” 

The event begins at 3 pm on Tuesday and is dubbed “Draft Day 2.0”. All of the content will originate from the Sports Gambling Podcast Network’s studios in Los Angeles. 

The marathon will also be a fundraiser. The network is using GoFundMe to raise funds for a colleague named Darryl injured in a motorcycle accident earlier this year. A portion of proceeds generated from the sale of Sports Gambling Podcast Network branded apperal will also go to the effort.
