New York sports talk-radio icon Mike Francesa has inked a new, long-term deal with CBS Radio. As part of the deal he will continue on as a host at WFAN (660AM/101.9FM) in the PM drive slot (1:30-6:30PM), and will also bring his WFAN Sunday program “The NFL Now” to more than 250 CBS Sports Radio affiliates.
Francesa has been a staple on WFAN and in the sports radio world for more than 25 years. His show is also simulcast on YES Network.
“Mike has earned his place in radio history as a great broadcaster and we’re thrilled to continue our relationship with sports radio’s most celebrated host,” said Dan Mason, president and CEO of CBS Radio in a statement. “WFAN and Mike Francesa are synonymous with the absolute best in sports programming excellence. These two powerful brands have endured the test of time, and remain a very relevant force in the industry nearly three decades after they first went on the air.”
