Chris Christie said Sunday he is no longer seeking a job at a NY sports talk radio station once he leaves office, disputing a newspaper report that said the station told him he was no longer being considered. For a brief, shining moment, it really looked as though the errand-boy routine had paid off and the sky was the limit, even with the whole Bridgegate scandal hanging over his head. All of the other names that have been rumored as possible Francesa replacements are still presumably in the running, however. Until last month, when he was terminated, Hughes was working for SiriusXM. Christie denied the legitimacy of that report, and then said Sunday that he declined an approach by WFAN.
The New York Daily News, citing anonymous sources, reported Saturday that station executives informed the brash-talking New Jersey governor he was out of the mix to take over for Francesa, the iconic drive-time host who is set to step down at the end of the year.
Chris Christie says he is no longer looking to join a local sports talk radio station once he leaves office. "I made that clear to them prior to leaving for my family vacation two weeks ago". She had told The Associated Press on Saturday that the station has not made a decision regarding a new afternoon show host and "cannot confirm the accuracy of the Daily News report". Obviously, we're hoping it's the one that almost all politicians in this day and age are offered and that, so far, only Rick Perry has accepted: a role on Dancing with the Stars.
