WFAN names "Fantasy Phenom Year 2" winner


CBS Radio’s Sports Radio 66, WFAN’s “Fantasy Phenom Year 2” has named John Jastremski of Staten Island the Grand Prize winner. John accumulated the highest vote totals from panel judges and by on-line and text voters. John will have a weekly air shift on Sports Radio 66, WFAN beginning in mid-September as their first Fantasy Phenom winner, Gregg Sussman, moves on to the part-time air staff at WFAN.

John is a Staten Island resident and currently works for the Point Pleasant (NJ) Patch. John was one of over 500 candidates who participated in this year’s event. Following the first round auditions, John was one of fifty semifinalists which was eventually narrowed down to five finalists who all appeared on Mike Francesa’s Summer Beach party 8/19 at Bar A in Lake Como, NJ.

WFAN also congratulates the four other finalists who will each receive one air shift on the station: Pat Totaro, Patrick Creighton, Mike McMaster and Neeraj Joshi.

Participants auditioned in front of a panel of judges at four area malls.  A number of participants moved on to round two, where the final five were determined. This year’s five finalists were chosen from over 2,000 fans and loyal listeners who showed up at the auditions or submitted videos online.
