Mike Greenberg is officially moving on from ESPN’s Mike and Mike. 

With the news, Mike Golic will stay put after signing a new contract with ESPN, and his new co-host will be Trey Wingo, per ESPN.

“ESPN Radio will debut its new morning drive show hosted by Mike Golic and Trey Wingo later this fall, from 6 – 10 a.m. ET. The daily ESPN Radio program will initially be simulcast on ESPN2 before moving to its permanent simulcast home on ESPNU.”

Joining Golic and Wingo will be Mike Golic Jr., every day from 6-7 A.M.

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.

Wingo has been with ESPN since 1997 and recently headed the network’s coverage of the NFL Draft.

Greenberg’s new show is expected to debut on New Year’s Day.
