As the company-wide re-jig continues over at the World Wide Leader, ESPN’s legendary morning talk show “Mike & Mike” is the latest show to get a face lift.
News had been circulating for a months now that Mike Greenberg had been eying a new morning show, and on Tuesday, the company made the news official.
“One of the many benefits of working at ESPN is that change and evolution are in our DNA,” said Greenberg in a statement released by the network. “My run with Golic has been an incredible experience that I’ll always treasure, but having the chance to engage multiple voices every morning in a dialogue on each day’s sports stories will be a great new challenge.”
Greeny followed with another short-but-sweet statement on Wednesday morning, thanking fans, his co-host Mike Golic and the show, which he called the greatest thing to ever happen to him in his professional life.
