WFAN Announces Second Fantasy Phenom Grand Prize Winner

Today’s reality television shows have contests that offer everything from being the top chef to best songwriter and, of course, a singing “idol.”  Well, WFAN is no exception.

For the second year straight, the sports radio station conducted a search for the next on-air star.

John Jastremski of Staten Island won this year’s event, and with it the Syracuse University grad is awarded a weekly show (for at least one year).

Last year’s winner Gregg Sussman is elevated to part-time status at the station.

Following the first-round auditions, John was one of fifty semifinalists which was eventually narrowed down to five finalists who all appeared last Friday with Mike Francesa during the Summer Beach party at Bar A in Lake Como, New Jersey.

“This year’s Fantasy Phenom Year 2 challenge proved to be a rewarding experience,” says WFAN operations manager Mark Chernoff.

The other finalists (Pat Totaro, Patrick Creighton, Mike McMaster, and Neeraj Joshi) get a nice consolation prize–one WFAN air shift.
