FILE – In this Aug. 30, 2012, file photo, Craig Carton talks during the National Football League Back to Football Run at Central Park in New York. Federal officials said the New York sports radio host is in custody and details of the charges against the host of WFAN-AM’s “Boomer and Carton” show were not immediately made public Wednesday, Sept. 6, 2017.

Former WIP and WFAN radio host Craig Carton, who resigned at WFAN in September after having been accused of investment fraud as part of a ticket brokerage scam, is returning to the microphone.

With a podcast.

He even has a sponsor.

The first official podcast will be available on iTunes Dec. 4, but Carton’s like-named website “Hello, My Name is Craig” goes live Monday.

Both website and podcast will feature Carton’s commentary on sports and other topics.

“I’m so thankful for all my family, friends and fans that have stuck with me and reached out, as well as to the podcast’s sponsor Adorama, as we start on this new journey,” Carton said in a statement. “It feels great to be able to broadcast again and bring listeners stories of some amazing people who will talk about their journeys of determination, decisiveness, recovery, success and failure.  I’ve missed doing it and am looking forward to bringing my perspective to the website everyday with some fresh content and the weekly podcast.”

Carton has pleaded not guilty to the charges and contended he was duped himself.
