WFAN Progam Director and CBS Radio VP of Sports Programming Mark Chernoff said, “We are proud to be a part of the fabric of New York sports. WFAN has wonderful, appreciative and engaged listeners who are the backbone of the station, as well as leading talent, that together allow WFAN to achieve groundbreaking success and have helped the station become an institution in the Big Apple. It is no coincidence that the station is nicknamed ‘The FAN,’ acting as a mouthpiece for die-hard sports enthusiasts.”
