Is Mike & Mike Ending?







     Is Mike & Mike ending?  Several trustworthy sources like Sports Illustrated, and Colin Cowherd have recently reported that Mike & Mike may be coming to an end in the near future.  Mike & Mike is a morning talk show that features the odd couple of Mike Greenberg, and Mike Golic.  Their show is broadcast on ESPN Radio, and simulcast (usually) on ESPN 2.  Mike & Mike has been a staple of ESPN for over 16 years.
     Mike & Mike have recently introduced new characters to their show such as Steve Smith, Jen Lada, and Mike Golic Jr.  I believe that Mike Greenberg will soon have his own morning show, and Mike Golic will team up with his son Mike Golic Jr. for a ESPN U morning show.  Neither ESPN, or Mike & Mike have yet to confirm a break up of the long running hit show.
