Abstract:

A behind-the-scenes look at the most powerful voices on New York's AM dial, this is the all-encompassing history of WFAN. Created in 1987, WFAN was the nation's first 24-hour, all sports radio station and this work recounts how, a quarter-century later, it is the highest-rated station in New York and the home to many unforgettable radio personalities past or present, including Don Imus, Chris Mad Dog Russo, Mike Francesa, and Boomer Esiason. Seasoned journalist Tim Sullivan provides an account that soaks itself in the history, impact, egos, fans, and all the controversies of WFAN, making it an enthralling read for any sports fan.
