Report: Chris Christie Being Considered To Replace Mike Francesa

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie did not receive a role in the White House as part of the Trump administration, but he could soon find himself with a new job.

According to a report from NorthJersey.com, Christie is being considered as a replacement for New York sports radio host Mike Francesa, who is retiring from WFAN 660-AM after nearly three decades in December.

Christie will be ending his time as governor just a few weeks later, so the timing could be perfect for everyone involved.

“I would certainly at least want to consider him,” CBS Radio New York vice president Mark Chernoff said. “If he’s interested and we’re interested, it’s worth pursuing.”

Christie is an avid sports fan and certainly has the voice and energy for radio, so who knows, it could be crazy enough to work.

In fact, Christie has been able to hold his own when co-hosting WFAN’s “Boomer and Carton” show on multiple occasions over the past year. And for what it’s worth, Christie has expressed interest in a career in sports radio.

“As my son said – he said, ‘I can’t believe I’ve been listening to you talk about sports my entire life and that someone might actually pay you to do that.’ He said, ‘I can’t imagine how great that would be for you,'” Christie said while appearing on SNY last week.

“And so, yeah, that’s certainly one of the things that I hope I’ll have a chance to consider when I get out and stop being governor.”
