Evan Roberts said on his WFAN show on Wednesday that he no longer will host his longtime Saturday morning/early afternoon show, ending a 16-year run.

“I very quietly retired from doing Saturdays,” he said on the air, adding that he did mention it briefly on his final show on Saturday.

Roberts said his old midday partner, Joe Benigno, will host solo this Saturday.

Roberts and Craig Carton have been WFAN’s afternoon drive time hosts since November 2020.

“It was a great run,” Roberts said. “I enjoyed doing it with Joe at the end, but it was just too much.”
