Christine Golic, Mike’s Wife, Says He Proposed Mike & Mike Reunion But ESPN Said No

ESPN announced their new radio lineup this week. Notably, Golic & Wingo is getting replaced by Zubin Mehenti, Keyshawn Johnson, and Jay Williams. This means Mike Golic’s 20-year run in the mornings on ESPN Radio is coming to an end in the next month. The news on Mehenti, Johnson, and Williams was first reported by the New York Post.

With Mike Greenberg getting a new radio show in afternoons, one Twitter user asked Mike Golic’s wife, Christine, about a potential Mike & Mike reunion. To this she replied that her Mike pitched this idea to ESPN, which said no:

An ESPN spokesperson declined to comment about this tweet thread.

It is going to be very interesting to see what’s next for Golic. There’s no sign that he’s ready to ride off into the sunset just yet, though he surely has the resources to retire. Any guesses about landing spots would be pure speculation at this point, but let’s do that anyway: SiriusXM? NFL Network? CBS?

In any event, the next few weeks will be a bittersweet victory lap for him as the company that is moving on from him nonetheless lauds his accomplishments there. It’s a safe bet that the final week of shows, which concludes July 31st, will be both nostalgic and emotional.

  1. I literally started my mornings with m & m on tv while they did their radio show. Literally for years it went south fast 3-4 years ago and then it was gone.

    Greenberg knows that if he did a show with Golic again, he would have to play the part of the stupid squeamish liberal that grew a beard to appear manly. Playing himself.

    Golic has always been himself. He is not a pretend scholar like Greenberg, who studied at Northwestern U, via rich parents. While Golic went to Notre Dame on his own athletic abilities. They were good together, but Greenberg wants to be Chris Berman.

    Two self made men … sort of. Greenberg is pretend. Golic is real. ESPN is a Pretend Media Place now. Just like Disney.

    I’d like to see Golic and Whitlock on the – soon to be -Outkick TV network or radio net.
