Gov. Chris Christie reportedly may be in the running for a job at a sports-talk radio station.

WFAN, a dominant outlet in the region, is "looking to do stuff" by the end of the year, when veteran afternoon-drive host Mike Francesa is expected to retire, Mark Chernoff, the program director and vice president at parent company CBS Radio New York, told North Jersey.com

The New Jersey Republican is among "plenty of candidates" that the station is contemplating to fill the void left by Francesa, Chernoff said.

"I would certainly at least want to consider him," Chernoff told the online news outlet. "If he's interested and we're interested, it's worth pursuing."

Christie has frequently co-hosted WFAN's "Boomer and Carton" show, fueling rumors he could be in the mix for Francesa's afternoon slot, the outlet noted.

Francesa usually has about six weeks of summer vacation and during that time, Chernoff said if Christie has the time, "we'll probably let him do some afternoon shows" to test him out in the afternoon time slot, North Jersey.com reported.
