As reported back in SEPTEMBER (NET NEWS 9/14/15), former NFL NETWORK "NFL AM" co-host and current ESPN "FIRST TAKE" moderator MOLLY QERIM is joining ESPN RADIO and ESPN2's "MIKE AND MIKE IN THE MORNING," and her first day on that job is now set for MONDAY (2/8).
QERIM will officially join the show for the last two hours of each broadcast (8-10a), also moderating a crossover in the last half-hour between "MIKE AND MIKE" and "FIRST TAKE" with the latter's STEPHEN A. SMITH and SKIP BAYLESS joining MIKE GREENBERG and MIKE GOLIC.
MIKE AND MIKE are also getting a new set to go along with QERIM and the "FIRST TAKE" crossover, moving the familiar bobbleheads from the hosts' desk to a wall display, and several other changes, plus a new theme. Guests for the first week will include HOUSTON TEXANS head coach BILL O'BRIEN and star running back ARIAN FOSTER, MAGIC JOHNSON, and former NFL wide receivers CHAD JOHNSON and TERRELL OWENS.
