ESPN Announces Mike Greenberg's New Morning Show to Debut January 1, 2018

ESPN announces new shows; 'Mike and Mike' to end after 17 years

A member of the National Association of Broadcasters Broadcasting Hall of Fame, Golic now serves as one-half of ESPN Radio's morning duo, Mike & Mike (with co-host Mike Greenberg), which has aired since January 2000. In addition, MIKE GOLIC JR., who hosts ESPN RADIO's "FIRST AND LAST" 4-6a (ET) weekdays, will join his father and WINGO in the 6a hour daily.

But the writing was on the wall when Greenberg signed a huge new contract to remain at ESPN late past year, reportedly one of the network's biggest at $6.5 million annually. Like "Mike & Mike", the program will be simulcast on ESPN2 at first, before moving to its permanent home on ESPNU. It's unlikely Greenberg's show will be highlight-based, considering ESPN 2 will be airing a more traditional "SportsCenter" during that time slot. The new show has yet to be named. Additionally, SportsCenter is getting yet another overhaul with news updates throughout the day.

At its annual upfront presentation for advertisers Tuesday, the network finally confirmed rumors that Greenberg will leave radio for TV as anchor of a new morning show on ESPN. More details about the show will be announced at a later date. Jones is now a co-host for "Highly Questionable" which is expected to announce a new co-host. "Now that it's going to happen, I couldn't be more excited". Torre is a regular guest on "Around the Horn" and a columnist for ESPN the Magazine.

Meanwhile, Sage Steele has also signed a new extension and will host the morning "SportsCenter" from 7 a.m.to 10 a.m. on ESPN2. "ESPN is committed to putting talented women in high-profile positions and we look forward to Beth and Rex's call of this game on our MNF opening night".

James's Place plc (STJ) Given Overweight Rating at Barclays PLC
In related news, insider Matthew Ashley sold 40,278 shares of the business's stock in a transaction dated Wednesday, March 15th. Lloyds Banking Group PLC (ADR) (NYSE:LYG) was trading -12.60% below its 52-week high and +56.39% above its 52-week low.

The radio show will debut in the fall.

Now Greenberg was on his own - and ready to pitch advertisers on his solo show premiering January 1, 2018.

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. As Deitsch noted, there was no way ESPN would pay a mere radio host that kind of money.
