At ESPN’s Upfront, the company announced that Mike & Mike would be moving to New York in February 2016, a very aggressive timeline. After carefully considering and working through all aspects of a potential move, ESPN has decided that the show will remain in Bristol for now. This opportunity with Mike & Mike remains worthy of strong consideration for continued growth of one of our most successful franchises. As part of their overall strategy, ESPN says they remain committed to integrating content across Mike & Mike, Good Morning America, and the new 7-9 a.m. live SportsCenter, which will debut in February.
ESPN also plans to continue down the path they started several months ago with appearances by Cris Carter during football season, Jay Williams during basketball season, and Jemele Hill and Michael Smith as regular contributors.
