GREGG SUSSMAN of MANALAPAN, NJ has won CBS RADIO Sports WFAN-A/NEW YORK's "Fantasy Phenom Challenge" talent contest and will get a chance to host his own weekly show on the station.

"It's honestly a dream come true and I'm thrilled to be given this opportunity of a lifetime, said SUSSMAN.
"This year's WFAN BUFFALO WILD WINGS Fantasy Phenom challenge proved to be a rewarding experience," said CBS RADIO NEW YORK VP/Programming and WFAN OM MARK CHERNOFF. "Congratulations to all of our participants and in particular our five finalists and grand prize winner GREGG SUSSMAN. There was a lot of talent out there -- so much so that along with our grand prize winner having the opportunity to host a show once a week for a year on the FAN, each of the other finalists will get the opportunity to host a show as a runner-up prize."
