Francesa Says Split With YES Based On Both Economic, Editorial Issues
Published December 17, 2013
GOOD WHILE IT LASTED: On Long Island, Neil Best notes while Francesa's tone was "appreciative and he praised YES for being 'great partners in every way'" since the simulcast's inception in '02, he "suggested YES and/or the Yankees eventually grew tired of their inability to control his content." Best: "The original 'Mike and the Mad Dog' simulcast, which Francesa said was the late George Steinbrenner's idea, was a pioneering show in what has become a common practice" (NEWSDAY, 12/17).
