ESPN ending 'Mike & Mike' radio show after 17 years

18 May 2017

A new show hosted by Mike Golic and Trey Wingo will debut later this fall. "ESPN is responding to change, and we are making changes from the most formidable position of strength". His longtime co-host on radio, Mike Golic, will continue on the radio with new partner Trey Wingo.

As for "SportsCenter", ESPN announced a series of "enhancements", including "SportsCenter Right Now", shorter updates that will air on television and ESPN's digital platforms during studio shows and at halftime of prime-time games. "My run with Golic has been an incredible experience that I'll always treasure, but having the chance to engage multiple voices every morning in a dialogue on each day's sports stories will be a great new challenge". Mike Golic Jr. will also be a regular cohost for the first hour of the show.

The show will also be heard on, the ESPN app, SiriusXM Channel 80, Apple Music, Slacker Radio and TuneIn. "I appreciate the loyalty of those who have started their mornings with us over the years and hope they continue to do so for years to come". The new show has yet to be named. More details about the show will be announced at a later date.

The other new show is an unnamed, hour-long talk show hosted by Bomani Jones and Pablo Torre airing at noon on ESPN. As Deitsch noted, there was no way ESPN would pay a mere radio host that kind of money.

Maria Taylor, Laura Rutledge to host "College GameDay", "SEC Nation": With Samantha Ponder of "College GameDay" succeeding Chris Berman as host of "Sunday NFL Countdown", ESPN said Taylor will join "College GameDay" and ABC's "Saturday Night Football".

The presentation, which opened with a New Orleans second line, comes just weeks after ESPN cut 100 employees on its talent roster, including Ed Werder, Trent Dilfer and Sara Walsh, who was due back from maternity leave when she was let go.

The ex-ESPN sportswriter co-hosts "Speak for Yourself" on FS1.

The presentation included appearances from ESPN personalities Scott Van Pelt.
