Mike Golic Jr. leaving ESPN after father’s exit

Date:



Mike Golic Jr. is leaving ESPN, The Post has confirmed.

Barrett Sports Media reported that ESPN Radio informed affiliates that as of Tuesday, Golic Jr. is no longer a part of their lineup. He had been hosting afternoons with Chris Canty, who will, at least for the time being, be joined by a rotating ensemble of hosts.

Golic Jr. joined ESPN in 2015. Before hosting with Canty, his co-host was Chiney Ogwumike, and prior to that he contributed to “Golic & Wingo” with his father, Mike Golic, and Trey Wingo.

Golic Jr.’s exit from ESPN comes about a year and a half after his father departed the company, following a two-decade run in morning drive for ESPN Radio.

A source told The Post that ESPN did make an offer to Golic Jr., but he decided to leave.

One destination that would make sense for Golic Jr. is Dan Le Batard and John Skipper’s Meadowlark Media, where Golic Sr. contributes to various podcasts. It is also plausible that he could wind up calling college football games, as he played offensive line at Notre Dame. Also, the sports gambling companies have been making considerable offers to prominent talents for a couple of years now.

Golic Jr. and an ESPN spokesperson both declined to comment for this story.
