Mike Francesa to leave WFAN in two years

A familiar voice on New York airwaves already has planned his exit strategy.

According to radio legend Mike Francesa himself, he will be leaving WFAN at the end of 2017 when his contract expires. Francesa informed  Fox Sports’ Katie Nolan of his plan on the recent edition of her podcast.

“I’m not saying I’m leaving the business. I’m leaving Monday to Friday, five-and-a-half hours, FAN,” Francesa said. “I’m not saying I’m not gonna work again. I’m not saying I’m not gonna do anything again. What I’m saying is, that part of my life, at the end of ’17, that is ending.”

It will definitely leave a giant vacancy in the radio world when Francesa calls it a career, but as we know, all good things must come to an end.
