"We are thrilled to bring the WFAN brand and our taste for great food to the world class Barclays Center," said Boomer & Carton. "Since starting our morning show in 2007, we've easily gained 50 pounds between the two of us. Clearly we know what tastes good and what people like to eat.  Boomer and Carton Kitchen will be a great extension of our show and an amazing partnership for years to come with Barclays Center."

"Boomer and Carton know their sports, but they also have a passion for food," Brett Yormark said. "We are delighted to creatively align our popular BrooklynTaste™ program with two of New York's most popular radio hosts. We encourage visitors to Barclays Center to stop by Boomer and Carton Kitchen to experience some of the unique and delicious offerings."

Including the addition of Boomer & Carton Kitchen, Barclays Center has expanded its number of food vendors this season from 37 to 55.
