Mike Golic:
Born December 12, 1962, Golic is a 1985 graduate of the University of Notre Dame where he served as captain of the football team during his senior season and wrestled. Golic is married with three children. Half of ESPN Radio’s weekday morning Mike & Mike, plays the role of ex-jock, former NFLer to Mike Greenberg. The show (6 – 10 a.m. ET), simulcast on TV since 2004, is available on ESPN Radio and ESPN affiliates across the country. “Golic,” as he is referred to, joined ESPN in 1995 as an NFL studio analyst on NFL 2Night and later on NFL Live and also worked as color commentator for the Arena Football League (1996-98, 2007-08) and ESPN/ABC college football games until the mid-nineties. Golic is a nine-year NFL veteran, playing defensive tackle for the Houston Oilers, Philadelphia Eagles and Miami Dolphins. During his seven years in Philadelphia, he began his television career with a weekly segment on the Randall Cunningham Show. He received a Mid-Atlantic Region Emmy Award for his feature “Golic’s Got It.” Golic and Greenberg have parlayed their winning formula to team on a variety of ESPN TV and radio programs:

Mike Greenburg:
For more than 16 years, sports fans have been waking up with Mike Greenberg – half of ESPN Radio’s weekday morning Mike & Mike, the perfect sports fan complement to his ex-jock co-host former NFLer Mike Golic.  The show (6 – 10 a.m. ET), simulcast on ESPN2 since 2005, is available on ESPN Radio, ESPNradio.com, ESPN app, SiriusXM and ESPN affiliates across the country.

In April 2016, Greenberg and Golic were inducted into the National Association of  Broadcasters Broadcasting Hall of Fame and are now among an esteemed group that includes Paul Harvey, Vin Scully, Harry Caray and Orson Welles. “Greeny,” as he is called, joined ESPN in September 1996 as an anchor for the November launch of ESPNEWS. He later anchored SportsCenter for many years, even long after Mike & Mike launched on January 3, 2000.

Playing off their many “Oscar and Felix-like” differences – passionate fan and journalism grad vs. NFL lineman, health nut and germ-a-phobe vs. burly man of prodigious appetite – Greenberg and Golic have parlayed their winning formula to team on a variety of events:

  • 11 appearances on Late Night with David Letterman.
