ESPN RADIO is adding a live show for 4-6a (ET) weekdays, making the network live around the clock during weekdays.

"We are constantly looking for new, aggressive ways of serving sports fans,” said VP/ESPN AUDIO Network Content DAVID ROBERTS. “Providing sports talk and information live around the clock during the week underscores our commitment to offering our listeners another opportunity to engage with our network through a strong opinion-based program. ROBIN LUNDBERG and MIKE GOLIC JR. will set the table perfectly for our flagship franchise, MIKE AND MIKE."
"This past year, I've been very fortunate to work with a lot of great people and with a great audience on the weekends,” said GOLIC JR. “I'm very excited to have the chance now to interact with the weekday crowd and to do so with someone as talented as ROBIN LUNDBERG."
LUNDBERG said, "For the last few years I've been able to connect to a loyal fan base in this time slot in NEW YORK and am thrilled to be able to expand that audience and be partnered with someone like MIKE GOLIC JR. as together we set the agenda for the day's talk."
