Mike Greenberg’s new morning show on ESPN is finally starting to take shape.
On Monday, a story from Teddy Greenstein of the Chicago Tribune ran which revealed some information about Greeny’s show, which won’t start until next spring, after his long-running morning radio gig with Mike Golic, Mike & Mike in the Morning, comes to an end this week.
Greenberg’s news show is going to be named “Get Up” and will be co-hosted by Michelle Beadle and Jalen Rose in Lower Manhattan.
When the show does officially premiere, it will air on ESPN from 7:00 a.m. – 10:00 a.m. ET.
As for what we could see on the final episode of Mike & Mike, Greenberg said:
I’ve always said we are a testament to the value of low expectations. We started out as two guys sitting in a room talking, and I think that would be an appropriate way for it to end. “Seinfeld” is my favorite TV show of all time, and while the finale has been much criticized, I do like that the very, very, very, end of the show was just them sitting in a room — in their case a jail cell — just talking. Doing exactly what the show had always been.
