Major news for Mike Greenberg at ESPN.
We’re about half a year away from the debut of Mike Greenberg’s new show at ESPN.
The co-host of Mike & Mike, ESPN’s longest-running radio show, will be leaving Mike Golic to start his own morning TV show for the Worldwide Leader.
The details of the show have been unclear for a while, but now we know when the show will be starting.
Sports Illustrated’s Richard Deitsch reports that it will debut in early January.
There is finally a start date—or at least an anticipated one—for the start of the show. The show is scheduled to debut the first or second week of January, tied to either the college football playoff semifinals on Monday, Jan 1. or the college football national title game (which airs Monday, Jan. 8).
Breaking up the Mikes means ESPN has a large radio slot to fill; Mike & Mike has been a revenue-driver for the division for a decade-plus. It’s also the signature show for ESPN in many radio markets across the country. Trey Wingo, who has experience on ESPN Radio and is one of the network’s signature NFL hosts, is expected to soon be formally announced in the role.
Greenberg’s show will likely be on ESPN sometime between 6 a.m. and 10 a.m. leading into First Take.
