I definitely will be retiring, leaving the station.” Joe plans to head to Florida in retirement and play a lot of golf.“It’s time, as far as my situation is concerned,” he said shortly after 2 p.m. “It’s time to go for me. I don’t think there’s any question about it. What else can you say? It’s been a great run.”He partnered with Roberts for 14 years and was at WFAN 25 years overall after previously having been a fan and caller. Of course Joe pointed out that none of his teams have won a championship since he has been on air.“Twenty-five years on the air, and not one of my teams won a championship,” he said, referring to the Jets, Mets, Knicks and Rangers.Joe is just as beloved by both callers and everyone within the WFAN family past and present. Take a look at some tweets congratulating Joe on an amazing career.I knew this day would eventually come…it has been an absolute honor to listen and then have the privilege of working with the great Joe Benigno for the last 14 years.
