Report: Mike Greenberg Leaving Mike & Mike For New ESPN TV Program
The longest-running partnership in sports radio is reportedly coming to an end very soon, according to SI.com and their sources.
“SI.com has learned via multiple sources that ESPN executives are moving forward with the plan to shift Mike Greenberg—one half of the long-running Mike & Mike radio show on ESPN Radio—into a new role as the lead host of a television show that would air in the mornings on ESPN. The new show will have elements of SportsCenter—which currently airs at that time—as well as a traditional morning show. It is expected to be based in New York City. The new program would put an end to end to Greenberg’s on-air partnership with Mike Golic, which began in October 1998. Mike & Mike currently airs weekdays on ESPN Radio from 6–10 a.m. ET and is simulcast on ESPN2.”
According to SI, the leading in-house candidate to emerge as a replacement for Greenberg is Trey Wingo.
