Many of CBS RADIO Sports WFAN-A/NEW YORK afternoon host MIKE FRANCESA's listeners may not even be aware that his show has a name other than "The MIKE FRANCESA Show," but until this week, the show shared the "MIKE'D UP" name with his former TV show on crosstown NBC O&O WNBC-TV (NBC 4).
But FRANCESA left NBC 4, and the TV station exercised its rights over the name, so, NEWSDAY's NEIL BEST reports, FRANCESA's radio show is now known as "MIKE'S ON," complete with new jingle similar to the former slogan's tune.
FRANCESA told BEST, "I don't think it matters that much."
