Mike and Mike

For more than 16 years, sports fans have been waking up with Mike Greenberg – half of ESPN Radio’s weekday morning Mike & Mike, the perfect sports fan complement to his ex-jock co-host former NFLer Mike Golic.  The show (6 – 10 a.m. ET), simulcast on ESPN2 since 2005, is available on ESPN Radio, ESPNradio.com, ESPN app, SiriusXM and ESPN affiliates across the country.

In April 2016, Greenberg and Golic were inducted into the National Association of  Broadcasters Broadcasting Hall of Fame and are now among an esteemed group that includes Paul Harvey, Vin Scully, Harry Caray and Orson Welles.

“Greeny,” as he is called, joined ESPN in September 1996 as an anchor for the November launch of ESPNEWS. He later anchored SportsCenter for many years, even long after Mike & Mike launched on January 3, 2000.

Playing off their many “Oscar and Felix-like” differences – passionate fan and journalism grad vs. NFL lineman, health nut and germ-a-phobe vs. burly man of prodigious appetite – Greenberg and Golic have parlayed their winning formula to team on a variety of events:

  • 11 appearances on Late Night with David Letterman.
  • Announced and played in Legends Game at Yankees Stadium in 2008 and St. Louis in 2009
  • Appeared as “guest conductors” at Wrigley Field, leading Cubs fans in singing “Take Me Out to the Ball Game” multiple times
  • Appeared in two motion pictures with Golic, Valentine’s Day and Just Wright
  • Served as guest emcee at White House Tee Ball game on the South Lawn and attended official White House dinner in July 2008
  • In-stadium announcers for Major League Baseball’s Home Run Derby in 2013 and 2014

The duo have also appeared on other ESPN shows and outlets: the weekly Mike & Mike’s Best of the NFL on ESPN, a primetime special on ESPN, Mike & Mike at Night; as themselves in an ESPN prime-time scripted drama (TILT); hosting a summer prime-time bowling series featuring pro athletes (League Night); and online as star characters in ESPN.com’s Sports Emmy Award-winning “Off Mikes” animated comedy series.

It is through the morning radio show, however, that Greenberg has become best known.  The program was first simulcast on ESPNEWS in 2004 and moved to ESPN2 in January 2005.

Greenberg has also been part of ESPN Radio major feats: along with co-host Golic they staged the network’s largest-ever promotion – “Mike & Mike’s Marriage Madness” — in which 500 couples applied for the chance to be married on the show.

In 2007, Greenberg’s first book, Why My Wife Thinks I’m an Idiot, spent five weeks on the N.Y. Times Best Sellers list and was nominated for a Quill Award.  It was the humorous self-deprecating account of his life as sports fan and husband.

In April 2010, Greenberg, along with Golic, released Mike & Mike’s Rules for Sports and Lifewhich reached number 3 on the N.Y. Times Best Sellers List.

 

Mike Golic, half of ESPN Radio’s weekday morning Mike & Mike, plays the role of ex-jock, former NFLer to Mike Greenberg. The show (6 – 10 a.m. ET), simulcast on TV since 2004, is available on ESPN Radio and ESPN affiliates across the country.

“Golic,” as he is referred to, joined ESPN in 1995 as an NFL studio analyst on NFL 2Night and later on NFL Live and also worked as color commentator for the Arena Football League (1996-98, 2007-08) and ESPN/ABC college football games until the mid-nineties.

Golic is a nine-year NFL veteran, playing defensive tackle for the Houston Oilers, Philadelphia Eagles and Miami Dolphins. During his seven years in Philadelphia, he began his television career with a weekly segment on the Randall Cunningham Show. He received a Mid-Atlantic Region Emmy Award for his feature “Golic’s Got It.”

Golic and Greenberg have parlayed their winning formula to team on a variety of ESPN TV and radio programs:

  • Co-host with Greenberg, Mike & Mike’s Best of the NFL on ESPN
  • Announced and played in Legends Game at Yankees Stadium in 2008 and St. Louis in 2009
  • Appeared as “guest conductors” at Wrigley Field, leading Cubs fans in singing “Take Me Out to the Ball Game” multiple times
  • Appeared in two motion pictures with Greenberg, Valentine’s Day and Just Wright
  • Served as guest emcee at White House Tee Ball game on the South Lawn and attended official White House dinner in July 2008
  • Received Sports Emmy in new-media category — Achievement in Content for Non-Traditional Delivery

In 2016, Golic was inducted into the National Association of  Broadcasters Broadcasting Hall of Fame with his Mike & Mike co-host, Greenberg

In April 2010, Golic, along with Greenberg, released Mike & Mike’s Rules for Sports and Lifewhich reached number 3 on the N.Y. Times Best Sellers List.

Golic and Greeny teamed with Steve Young in 2009 to call the San Diego Chargers-Oakland Raiders game as part of ESPN’s season-opening Monday Night Football doubleheader.

Golic has also been part of ESPN Radio major feats: along with co-host Greenberg they staged the network’s largest-ever promotion – “Mike & Mike’s Marriage Madness” — in which 500 couples applied for the chance to be married on the show. In 2012 and 2013, the Mike & Mike’s Best of the NFL weekly highlights show aired on ESPN, and in 2014, Mike & Mike: NFL Rankedaired in 2014.

In December 2005, the Mikes were featured in ESPN Radio’s first national, broadcast promos.

Born December 12, 1962, Golic is a 1985 graduate of the University of Notre Dame where he served as captain of the football team during his senior season and wrestled. Golic is married with three children.
