End of an era: Mike Golic’s last day on ESPN Radio, to sign off from ‘Golic and Wingo’ | #ThankYouGolic
It’s the end of the road for Mike Golic, who will sign off from ESPN Radio on Friday after almost two decades on the airwaves.
Goodbyes are coming from near and far, including his own family, with #ThankYouGolic trending on Twitter.
Earlier this month, ESPN Radio announced it’s canceling “Golic and Wingo” after three seasons. Trey Wingo replaced Mike Greenberg, who ended “Mike and Mike” in 2017 to move back into the TV studio.
But Golic will remain with the Worldwide Leader as a college football analyst for the network.

Greenberg previously co-hosted “Mike & Mike” for almost two decades before returning to the TV studio in 2017. “In radio there is an intimacy in the relationship with the audience that is different from any other medium,” Greenberg said. “I have always enjoyed that and am really looking forward to rediscovering it.” He will continue to host “Get Up” on weekday mornings.
