The End is Near for ESPN's Mike & Mike Morning Radio Show

FROM PHILLY.COM Unfortunately, the cat is well out of the bag on ESPN’s plans to move Mike Greenberg off the popular Mike & Mike radio show (and ESPN2 simulcast) and into his own morning show on the Worldwide Leader, which will reportedly combine elements of SportsCenter with a typical morning show. (The other "Mike" is Mike Golic, a former NFL player)

While confirming that all the rumors about the show have been true, Greenberg says there are a “million decisions” that need to be made before the plug is officially pulled on Mike & Mike.
“We haven’t even hired a producer yet,” Greenberg said. “ I know people think I’m saying this just to say it, but we really have not officially decided to do this yet.”

So far, ESPN has refused to comment on the news.

The move to put Greenberg in his own morning show would come as ESPN is planning to undergo another round of layoffs, which will spare behind-the-scenes staff but includes many hosts and reporters whom fans know and recognize.

During an appearance on Richard Deitch’s Sports Illustrated podcast, ESPN expert and bestselling author Jim Miller predicted the network will shed between 40 and 50 on-air personalities during this round of cutbacks.


Could ESPN really get rid of 40-50 anchors? So who is safe at ESPN? We see Stephen A. Smith, Bomani Jones, Jemele Hill, Michael Smith, Dan Le Batard, Scott Van Pelt,  Neil Everett and Stan Verrett and a very few others. Over the last year or so we've seen the departure of Mike Tirico, Colin Cowherd, Skip Bayless, Chris Broussard, and Erin Andrews at ESPN.  

We also see ESPN moving their main operations out of Bristol, Connecticut, where they've been for over 30 years and going to Los Angeles. ESPN is owned by The Disney Corporation.


  1. The whole ESPN network has gone down. They need some fresh blood. I dont check for Sportscenter anymore. Stephan A is a loudmouth.

  2. Agreed! Jemelle Hill and Michael Smith are terrible,and please get Smith off of the fantasy football now show with Matthew Berry and Matt Hasselbeck! Smith is a clown and I take my fantasy football very seriously!

More news...On Sunday 107.5 WBLS weekend host LaDawn Black announced she was moving on to a new opportunity and leaving the station. Black made a surprise return to radio this week at her old stomping grounds as a guest host on The AM Clique Morning Show this week on 92Q (WERQ-FM Baltimore). LaDawn hosted the very popular night show 'The Love Zone' until 2013 when she moved over to sister Adult R&B station Magic 95.9 as midday host.

iHeart's Power 99 (WUSL-FM Philadelphia) midday host Cappuchino exits the station. She's been with the station since 2012. 'Way Up with Angela Yee' is now heard on Power 99 as one of the 30 affiliates that carry the syndicated program across the country.

Questlove went to Instagram to celebrate the word “jawn” being recognized as an official word in the Merriam-Webster Dictionary. The dialectic term is native to his hometown. In Philadelphia and Eastern PA, “jawn” evolved as a variant of “joint,” originally denoting a place. “Jawn” has been used to describe almost anything that one need not or cannot give a specific name to. Suddenly jawn has become not cool to use.
