The dream run from caller to drive-time host will come to an end for Joe Benigno on Wednesday when he officially announces his retirement, paving the way for Craig Carton’s return to WFAN to team with Evan Roberts.

FAN previewed that there will be an announcement during the 5 p.m. hour of Wednesday afternoon’s program. Sources told The Post that the news will be Benigno calling it a career.

In recent years, Benigno, 67, has talked repeatedly about putting down his headphones and moving to Florida.

During his best performances, Benigno’s passion, that began as a caller, “Joe from Saddle River,” has always been his calling card. For years, on overnights, his opening rants on a Jets or Mets loss were classic.

He and Roberts had a lot of success in middays, though, their short run in afternoons was not a strong one in part due to the pandemic and because of the popularity of “The Michael Kay Show.”

To combat that, WFAN is bringing back Carton to team with Roberts. Carton was last on the FAN three years ago. He served a year in a federal prison after misallocating loans to pay off gambling debts.

Carton is expected to join the station soon, as Benigno’s exit will become official on Wednesday.
