Changes Coming for ESPN Radio’s Mike and Mike
Its been a very busy week at ESPN.
First the news that SVP and Russillo would be seeing their six year duo come to an end this fall was news enough to capture the headlines, but that is not where it ended.
ESPN announced along with the news of the end of SVP and Russillo on ESPN Radio that Scott Van Pelt would be transitioning into a new role as host of a "Midnight Sportscenter" that will be more like a late night talk show.
Plus, ESPN is adding two additional hours of live SportsCenter in the morning. Starting in February, “SportsCenter AM” will air live from 6 a.m. to 8 a.m central time. According to the mother ship, the show will have a fast-paced format.
To digest all that is a lot, but digest this... Mike and Mike will see some changes too on ESPN Radio.
Mike and Mike, will be moving to New York in February of 2016.
ESPN has said that the move will enable the morning show featuring hosts Mike Greenberg and Mike Golic to dive into more entertainment and pop culture aspects, including welcoming members of ABC’s “Good Morning America” to make appearances on the show.
