‘Mike and Mike in the Morning’ Signs Off of ESPN After 17 Years

ESPN Radio’s popular sports talk show “Mike and Mike in the Morning” concluded its 17-year run on Friday, Nov. 17. For most of its time, the show had been simulcast on the ESPN2 cable TV network.

The show’s title referred to its hosts, SportsCenter‘s Mike Greenberg and former pro football player Mike Golic. They both debated the hot button sports issues of the day each morning.

Joining several major ESPN personalities past and present who contributed their on-air tributes to the program on Nov. 17, sports notorieties Tiger Woods, Jack Nicklaus, NBA commissioner Adam Silver, former MLB commissioner Bud Selig and former Buffalo Bills quarterback Jim Kelly as well as former U.S. president Bill Clinton all also bid their fond farewells.

Starting in spring 2018, Greenberg will host the ESPN TV morning program “Get Up” alongside Michelle Beadle and Jalen Rose. Golic will remain on ESPN Radio and TV’s ESPN2 as host of the new “Golic & Wingo” morning show (debuting Nov. 27) with new co-hosts Trey Wingo and Golic’s son, Mike Golic Jr. Both Wingo and Golic Jr. were frequent “Mike & Mike” fill-in hosts in recent years.
