New Mike Greenberg Morning Show On ESPN Scheduled To Begin In Early January
Mike Greenberg's new morning TV show with ESPN is "scheduled to debut the first or second week of January," tied to either the CFP semifinals on New Year's Day or the Championship Game set for Jan. 8, according to Richard Deitsch of SI.com. Trey Wingo, who has experience on ESPN Radio and is "one of the network’s signature NFL hosts, is expected to soon be formally announced" as a replacement for Greenberg on what has been the "Mike & Mike" morning show (SI.com, 5/14). In N.Y., Bob Raissman viewers should look for ESPN to "officially announce next week that 'Mike & Mike' (Greenberg/Golic) will do their last show in December." The announcement will "produce all kinds of analysis concerning the history of their radio partnership and how effective it actually was." The one thing that "is certain" is that the "Mike & Mike" program "stood out as ESPN Radio’s signature show." Raissman: "Will it carry the same weight when Greenie splits for his own TV production and Golic teams with Trey Wingo on the radio?" That is going to be "hard AND ironic, considering Golic will be following an act he helped establish" (N.Y. DAILY NEWS, 5/14).
