Mike & Mike announce end of the program, Golic makes things awkward

Joe Buck

Greenberg will give up his long-running "Mike and Mike" radio show with Mike Golic.

The format of Greenberg's new show is still being worked out, but the concept may be similar to MSNBC's popular "Morning Joe" with a series of rotating guests discussing the sports news of the day.

Last but not least, the most surprising of the announcements from ESPN comes in the form of a new midday show (from 12:00 pm ET to 1:00 pm ET) that will be co-hosted by Bomani Jones and Pablo Torre.

Greenburg is shifting back to TV, where he'll host a live morning show from 7-10 a.m. Golic will be paired with Trey Wingo and remain on morning radio.

Greenberg says his "run with Golic has been an incredible experience", but he's looking forward to a new challenge.

Mike Greenberg had a nostalgic moment as he stepped on to the stage at ESPN's "upfront" presentation in Times Square on Tuesday.


ESPN has signed Torre, who joined ESPN in 2012, to a multiyear extension which will also afford him the opportunity to continue making regular appearances across a variety of the network's shows and platforms.

At the network's upfront presentation Tuesday, those plans were formally announced, as Greenberg's show will debut in January, while Golic will serve in the same role he has now alongside Trey Wingo.

Sporting News broke the news in October that ESPN rising stars Bomani Jones and Pablo Torre were in line for their own show at noon ET. I'm going to continue to do this exact same show, it's for others to tell who made this decision - if they want to tell it and how they want to tell it. Additional details about the show, including the name, will be announced at a later date.

He joined ESPN in 1995 as an National Football League studio analyst after a nine-year career in the National Football League as a defensive tackle. Jones joined ESPN full time in 2013. He is the host of ESPN's multi-day NFL Draft coverage.

"Fans understand the distinction between just getting the score, just getting a highlight, and getting it on ESPN with personality and authority", he said.

Golic, Jr. has hosted shows on ESPN Radio since 2015.
