For those of you not in New York… Mike Francesa is a sports radio legend. His show has been number one for what feels like centuries and your bound to come across him yelling at fans. His show airs on the radio on WFAN and is simulcast on the YES Network. He’s been known to fall asleep in the middle of interviews and around Christmas he brings his kids in and they wreck the set.
It soon will be splitsville for the Sports Pope and the Yankees Entertainment & Sports Network.
The 10-year+ simulcast relationship between WFAN’s Mike (Sports Pope) Francesa and the YES Network will be over by the end of January, the Daily News has learned. YES will replace Francesa’s afternoon drive show with ESPN-98.7’s “The Michael Kay Show.”
No matter what I think he’ll end up back on TV. For now we have his fake Twitter account to keep us amused.
