On a summer night while enjoying the relaxation of Coffey
's hot tub, Coffey convinced Carey
to get back into radio.The boys didn't know it, but they were now on a path that would lead them to the Carey and Coffey Show.Carey

as the afternoon drive host on Y105
.A short while later the management of Cumulus Danbury
decided to flip the format of their AM stations 940 WINE and 150 WPUT to all sports with ESPN Radio
instantly decided they wanted to do a sports talk show.
In August of 2005 the Carey and Coffey Show began.It became obvious relatively quickly that they didn't know enough about basketball, football, or care enough about hockey to host an all encompassing sports talk show.They decided to focus the show on Baseball and NASCAR.A few short months later, Baseball fell by the wayside and the Carey and Coffey Show started to carve out a real identity.
Capitalizing on the fact that there is no personality based NASCAR talk show on the radio, and that NASCAR is a sport experiencing tremendous growth and expansions, Carey
and Coffey LLC
