Mike Greenberg Close to ESPN Radio Deal

Videos by OutKick

ESPN is close to finalizing a deal with Mike Greenberg to return to the radio lineup, sources tell Outkick.

Greenberg would host the show solo. The move will not impact Greenberg’s role on Get Up.

While the deal is not done yet and the exact start time is still being hashed out, it’s expected the radio show would air sometime between noon and 3 p.m. ET.

As Outkick reported, ESPN’s first choice for morning radio is Max Kellerman and Keyshawn Johnson. ESPN’s deal with Johnson is in the late stages. Kellerman, however, wants to remain on First Take, which airs from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. 

The New York Post first mentioned the possibility of Greenberg returning to ESPN Radio in April.

Greenberg would be a big boost to ESPN’s radio lineup that has been lackluster for the past several years. It’s losing its best overall radio host in Will Cain, who chose to leave the network. Greenberg brings star power and has nearly two decades of radio success on Mike & Mike.

  1. Wokecenter is desperate. But overworking and overexposing Mike Greenberg is not going to fix it.
    I zapped Wokecenter’s APP and replaced it with the surging OUTKICK, along with other sources delivered right to my mailbox. Jason Whitlock is an overnight sensation, now that he is no long muzzled by networks and sponsors. Wokecenter is now like the aging athletes who believe they “still have a lot left in the tank.”

  2. ESPN is pathetic like Barstool. Mike and Mike used to be about sports and was great to listen to. Get Kannell and Russillo back, get an entertaining host that will talk Football. Sean Salisbury and Jay marioti were better
