Craig Carton — half of the famous ‘Boomer and Carton’ sports talk show on WFAN — has been found guilty of running a massive concert ticket scam.

The radio personality — who quit his job as Boomer Esiason‘s cohost amid a federal investigation back in September 2017 — was convicted in court Wednesday … and is now facing up to 45 years in federal prison.

As we previously reported … Carton and a partner claimed to have been operating a ticket business that promised blocks of tickets to big concerts — yet officials say it was all a lie … they never had the tix.

Carton was accused of defrauding investors out of more than $2 million.

The radio host was found guilty of conspiracy to defraud the U.S., wire fraud and securities fraud.

Carton — who didn’t testify at trial — called the charges “unfounded” back in 2017 … and said he looked forward to “clearing his name.”

Carton — facing decades behind bars — is due back in court for sentencing at a later date.
