Eli Manning joins WFAN for weekly interview

Posted by Dan Salomone on August 22, 2012 – 7:28 pm

Sports Radio 66 WFAN and the New York Giants are proud to announce a multi-year agreement with Eli Manning, the two-time Super Bowl winning quarterback who will join the nation’s most listened to sports radio station for an exclusive weekly interview with legendary host Mike Francesa.

Manning will be heard at 5:05PM, ET (subject to change) the day after Giants games throughout the regular and post-season on-air, online at www.wfan.com and via apps for a variety of mobile devices beginning on Thursday, Sept. 6.  The Giants open the 2012 season against the Dallas Cowboys on Sept. 5.

“As the team’s flagship radio station, we’re proud to be the leading source of Giants news for football fans across the tri-state area,” says Mark Chernoff, Vice President of Programming, CBS RADIO New York and WFAN Operations Manager.  “Having Eli every week is guaranteed to give listeners the best commentary, insight and discussion with a perspective only he can offer on the New York Giants.  This will be appointment radio at its best.”

“More listeners tune into a typical New York Giants broadcast than any other radio play-by-play in the New York marketplace, and we’re happy to announce the expansion of our programming on WFAN to feature a special segment with Eli,” said Mike Stevens, Giants SVP and CMO. “WFAN has always been the first place Giants fans turn to for exclusive, live comments from all our players in the station’s post-game show.  We are thrilled that the flagship station of Giants football for the past 18 years will now be the home of Eli Manning’s weekly drive time interview with Mike Francesa.”

“I look forward to talking about our games each week with Mike,” said Manning, a two-time Super Bowl MVP. “As anybody who has listened to Mike on The NFL Now on Sunday mornings knows, he understands and appreciates and enjoys discussing the Giants and the rest of the National Football League. Again, I look forward to joining the conversation with Mike and speaking directly with our fans on our flagship radio station.”

All New York Giants game throughout the regular- and post-season can be heard on-air at Sports Radio 66 WFAN, and in digital quality sound on 92.3 WXRK-FM (HD-3).

Originally a 1st round (1st pick overall) draft choice by the San Diego Chargers in 2004, Manning was obtained by the Giants in a trade.  He has played in 121 regular-season games with starts in his last 119 appearances and has started all 11 postseason games in which he’s played.  Manning also holds the Giants career postseason records with 356 pass attempts, 219 completions, 61.51 completion percentage, 2,516 yards, and 17 touchdown passes.  He led the Giants to their 3rd NFC East championship and 5th postseason berth in his eight full seasons as the team’s quarterback.

Manning was named the Giants’ recipient of the NFL Walter Payton Man of the Year award in 2007, 2008, and 2011, an honor given to the player on each team who displays excellence on the football field and in the community.  He also champions the efforts of The March of Dimes and has made a five-year commitment to raise $2.5 million for the Eli Manning Children’s Clinics at the Blair E. Batson Hospital for Children in Jackson, Miss.

Now in his third decade in afternoon drive, Francesa has firmly established himself as the most successful and influential sports-talk show host in the history of radio.  For 19 years, he teamed with Christopher Russo on the iconic “Mike and the Mad Dog” program, widely recognized as the most important sports talk program ever.  Since 2008, his afternoon program, heard daily on WFAN (1:00-6:30 p.m.) and simulcast on TV via the YES Network, has grown to even greater heights.  Talkers magazine recently recognized Francesa as the No. 1 sports-talk show host in the country.  The St. John’s University graduate resides on Long Island with his wife, Roe and their three children – Jack, Emily and Harrison.
