With Mike Greenberg reportedly slated to transition into a morning television role for ESPN, his Mike and Mike companion, Mike Golic apparently has a new co-host for the morning show in Trey Wingo.
Golic’s son, Golic Jr., will also reportedly be a key member of the show moving forward, per NY Daily News:
ESPN recently cut dozens of staffers as the worldwide leader continues to fight against cord cutters and rapidly declining subscribers. Based off a sit-down interview with Sporting News, Golic wasn’t exactly confident he’d make it through the cuts.
“I would imagine I would continue to do that show. We haven’t gotten that far, quite honestly, as to if the show is going to end, when it’s going to end, and when it ends, and if it does end, what’s going to happen with the show?” Golic told Sporting News in an interview. “I would imagine I would still be doing it. I would imagine I would be doing it with somebody else. Who that is? I don’t really know.”
Greenberg and Golic have been radio partners since 1998, making them one of the longest-running tandems in sports media. The end of their show would signal the end of one of the better pieces of ESPN programming, making this a large risk for the network.
Trey Wingo has been with ESPN since 1997 and recently headed the network’s coverage of the NFL Draft.
