Mike Greenberg and Mike Golic both are staying at ESPN, but they’re heading in different directions.
One of ESPN’s worst-kept secrets in the last year was that it was breaking up “Mike and Mike” after nearly two decades on the air in order to give Greenberg his own morning show on ESPN.
At the network’s upfront presentation Tuesday, those plans were formally announced. Greenberg’s show will debut in January, while Golic will serve in the same role he has now alongside new co-host Trey Wingo.
The two discussed their respective futures while also looking back at 18 years together in an emotional segment Wednesday morning.
Greenberg’s new morning show will premiere Jan. 1, 2018, and will air live from 7 a.m. to 10 a.m. ET each day out of Manhattan. Golic, as mentioned, will keep a similar role co-hosting ESPN Radio’s morning radio show with Wingo. That program initially will stay on ESPN2 before moving over to ESPNU.
