The prodigal son is about to return home.
Newsday reports Syracuse University alumnus Craig Carton is close to sealing the deal which will put him back on the airwaves with WFAN.
Barring a late contractual glitch, WFAN likely will rehire Craig Carton in the coming weeks and install him in afternoon drive time, by early January at the latest and perhaps sooner than that, sources said.
Carton’s return will come as no surprise. His career has been trending in that direction ever since his release from federal prison.
Carton resigned from WFAN shortly after his arrest in 2017. He was convicted for his role in a Ponzi-like ticket brokering scheme in November 2018 after misappropriating investment funds to pay off gambling debts.
