After a 12-year run with the YES Network, Mike Francesa and his sports talk radio show have found a new home with Fox Sports after reaching a multiyear deal with the nation’s newest sports network.
From an official release on Wednesday:
“The Mike Francesa Show” will begin weekday telecasts Monday, March 24, on FOX Sports 1 (1 to 4 p.m. ET) and FOX Sports 2 (4 to 6 p.m. ET), continuing to originate from WFAN’s lower Manhattan studios and broadcast locally at 66AM and 101.9FM. The show also is streamed live via FOX Sports GO through participating video providers.
As one of the sports’ most beloved talking heads, you knew it wouldn’t be long before a big-time network jumped in to grab Francesa’s simulcast.
