CBS Sports WFAN-A/NEW YORK afternoon "MIKE AND THE MAD DOG" co-host CHRIS "MAD DOG" RUSSO downplayed the speculation in NEWSDAY this weekend that he and MIKE FRANCESA are breaking up their long-running act, admitting that the two had been "fighting like cats and dogs" through early MAY, but that they had patched up their differences.
"Nineteen, 20 years, you're going to have your issues occasionally," said RUSSO on MONDAY's show. "You gotta get through those issues."
NEWSDAY's NEIL BEST reported on SUNDAY that "industry sources with knowledge of the situation" told him that the MIKE AND THE MAD DOG pairing "is not expected to survive to see its 19th anniversary SEPTEMBER 5th."
