For nearly two decades the morning drive-time slot on the ESPN Radio lineup has been occupied by Mike & Mike, with Mike Greenberg and Mike Golic holding down the airwaves from 6 a.m. to 10 a.m. The duo are the longest tenured show on ESPN Radio, but at some point in 2017 their 18-year run will come to an end.
The two long-time co-hosts made what everyone already knew official on Wednesday, announcing that they will be splitting up later this year, although they still weren’t totally sure when that will happen. Greenberg is part of the new ESPN morning lineup with his own TV show from 7 a.m. to 10 a.m., while Golic will remain on radio in the same time slot with new partners Trey Wingo and Mike Golic Jr.
Greenberg offered a heartfelt goodbye to the program, thanking the listeners and noting how it was the best thing of his professional career and he didn’t feel as though anything would ever be as fun for him. Golic seemed less happy about the changes that were coming, explaining that it wasn’t his decision and the reason for the change was “someone else’s story to tell” and not his, but that he was, nonetheless, excited to work with Wingo and his son on the new radio show.
