Mike Golic signs off on ESPN ether waves for the last time

Nearly 22 years of Mike Golic on the air has come to an end.

The former NFL player who became a radio star signed for the last time on Friday after a two-decade run on the air, first alongside Mike Greenberg and later alongside Trey Wingo.

The Golic family, who played a major part on the show during the show, flanked the older Golic during the closing segment of his last show. Mike Jr. held an emotional monologue and paid tribute to his father.

Prior to ‘Mike & Mike’ in the morning, Golic hosted an ESPN morning show alongside Tony Bruno in 1998. Golic would host the show until he joined Greenberg in 2000. The show ran until Greenberg’s departure in 2017. The split between the two was public and bitter, although the two have reconciled in recent years.

“Mike & Mike” became one of the first nationally broadcast sports shows to gain a lot of appeal and was praised for the chemistry between the two Mike’s and Golic’s energy in the morning. The two were eventually inducted into the NAB Broadcasting Hall of Fame in 2016.

Members of the sports world reached out to Golic and wished him the best in his future endeavors.
