ESPN to start new Mike Greenberg show on January 1

Six Things We Learned From ESPN's Upfront

"On a more serious note, I'm looking forward to the challenge that lies ahead and keeping ESPN RADIO the place to be in the morning for an entertaining start to your sports day".

Sage Steele has also signed an extension and will host "SportsCenter" from 7 to 10 a.m. on ESPN2.

The country's largest sports network took over a Times Square theater Tuesday morning, bringing out a bevy of famous athletes and a new generation of on-air personalities tasked with breathing new life into a network forced to adapt to subscriber losses and slowing ad sales.

Sporting News broke the news in October that ESPN rising stars Bomani Jones and Pablo Torre were in line for their own show at noon ET.

One of ESPN's worst-kept secrets in the past year was that it was breaking up "Mike and Mike" after almost two decades on the air in order to give Greenberg his own morning show on ESPN.

Last but not least, the most surprising of the announcements from ESPN comes in the form of a new midday show (from 12:00 pm ET to 1:00 pm ET) that will be co-hosted by Bomani Jones and Pablo Torre. It has been long rumored that Greenberg wanted to relocate from ESPN's CT headquarters to New York City.

A former NFL All-Pro, Spielman worked at ESPN for years but now has a gig as a game analyst for Fox NFL. Additional details about the show, including the name, will be announced at a later date.

The move will put an end to one of the longest-running sports radio partnerships which began in October 1998. Torre joined ESPN in 2012. These will be shown "multiple times per hour" and will be brief "up-to-the-minute" news updates, similar to the "SportsCenter" updates already heard on ESPN Radio.

ESPN was, for the most part, in sell mode, at times poking fun at the notion that television advertising was outdated.

The ex-ESPN sportswriter co-hosts "Speak for Yourself" on FS1.

"Fans understand the distinction between just getting the score, just getting a highlight, and getting it on ESPN with personality and authority", he said. Wingo graduated from Baylor University in 1985 with a bachelor's degree in communications. Golic's son, Mike Golic Jr., will also contribute to the show. Like his father, he is a graduate of Notre Dame and played college football for the Irish.
