Mike Francesa Leaving WFAN Afternoon Show Again



Mike Francesa is parting ways with his WFAN afternoon show once again.

The New York radio host told Newsday's Neil Best that he was leaving his afternoon drive-time show this December. According to Best, Francesa may end up with a role for another platform, but his days of doing Monday through Friday from 3 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. on WFAN will come to an end sometime next month.

Best later reported that Francesa signed a three-year exclusive contract to work for Entercom/Radio.com/WFAN. He also said he wants to spend more time with his family as his three children will be attending high school. 

Francesa left WFAN in December of 2017 only to return to the station in April of 2018. He started at WFAN shortly after it launched in 1987 and was one half of the popular Mike and the Mad Dog show from 1989 until 2008 when his partner, Chris Russo, left WFAN for Sirius.
