Probably our most intriguing showdown of the opening round of the SMJ Sports Radio Madness competition…our lone local sports talk show, Mike & The Mad Dog from WFAN going up against ESPN Radio’s DOug Gottlieb.
Mike & The Mad Dog– Mike Francesa and Chris “Mad Dog” Russo bring their feisty, hard-hitting brand of sports talk to WFAN weekday afternoons from 1:00 to 6:30 PM. The Mike and the Mad Dog show debuted on the FAN in September of 1989 creating the two man talk team that is now the industry standard. Their show has been at or near the top of the ratings book ever since. Get more on Mike here. Get more on Mad Dog here.
Doug Gottlieb- Doug Gottlieb is host of ESPN Radio’s The Pulse, which debuted in December 2006 and is heard nationally 7-10 p.m. ET M-F. Gottlieb joined ESPN in September 2003 as co-host of ESPN Radio’s GameNight, which is carried by more than 300 affiliates nationwide Monday-Friday from 7 p.m.-1 a.m. ET (or starting at 7:30 p.m. following the 30-minute radio-version of ESPN’s popular Pardon the Interruption on some stations).
