Details Emerge on Craig Carton’s New Show, Fox Sports Redesign
In the fall, Craig Carton will have a lot to do.
Fox Sports announces Tuesday that “The Carton Show” will air with a rotating cast of co-hosts weekday mornings at 7:00 a.m. ET, starting Tuesday, Sept. 6, The Post has learned.
The Post’s Andrew Marchand first reported in May that the show with Carton was going to happen. He also later reported that Fox Sports considered Damien Woody as a potential co-host, but ESPN wouldn’t let the former offensive lineman out of his contract.
Carton will be driving the afternoon from 2:00 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. alongside Evan Roberts on WFAN.
The road back has been long and winding for Carton. In 2018, the host was convicted of defrauding investors in a ticket sales scheme, in part to cover gambling debts. He was released from prison in 2020 and returned to WFAN.
Carton and Roberts had an up and down battle in the ratings war against “The Michael Kay Show” on ESPN New York, but WFAN won the last two quarters fairly easily.
Elsewhere on FS1, “Undisputed” with Skip Bayless and Shannon Sharpe will continue to air from 9:30 a.m. to noon. Jen Hale, who has been hosting for several months, has officially been named the show’s host, replacing Jenny Taft. Taft remained with Fox Sports and contributes to the network’s college football and soccer coverage.
Colin Cowherd’s new co-host on “The Herd” is Jason McIntyre. McIntyre, who founded The Big Lead blog, has been a utility player for FS1 since 2016. Front Office Sports first reported that McIntyre would land the role; he replaces Joy Taylor.
As The Post previously reported was a strong possibility, Taylor will indeed be joining Emmanuel Acho and LeSean McCoy on a show airing at 4:30 p.m. ET. The show, previously called “Speak for Yourself,” will now be called “Speak.”
Marcellus Wiley, the former co-host of Acho, has been offered a different role on the network, sources told The Post in July. Early August, Wiley tweeted that he was leaving “SFY” but would no longer be seen on Fox Sports. However, he is not included in the announcement of the new FS1 lineup, so it is currently unknown where things stand with him.
“First Things First” with Nick Wright, Chris Broussard and Kevin Wildes moves between “The Herd” and “Speak” — it will air at 3:00 p.m. ET for 90 minutes.
“NASCAR Race Hub” with Adam Alexander, Shannon Spake, Kaitlyn Vincie and Josh Sims will continue to air at 6 p.m.
