Mike GolicESPN Radio Co-Host
Years before he gained fame on ESPN, Mike Golic was making a name for himself on the football field. He played nine years in the NFL as a defensive tackle for the Houston Oilers, Philadelphia Eagles and Miami Dolphins. While playing for the Eagles, he started his television career with a weekly segment on “The Randall Cunningham Show.” For his work on that program, Mr. Golic received a Regional Emmy Award for the feature “Golic’s Got It.”
In 1995, Mr. Golic accepted an offer from ESPN as an NFL studio analyst and color commentator for the Arena Football League and college football. For 17 years, he was half of the popular “Mike and Mike” radio show on ESPN Radio which he co-hosted with Mike “Greeny” Greenberg. In 2016, the two were inducted into the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) Broadcasting Hall of Fame. The pair also wrote the book “Mike & Mike’s Rules for Sports and Life,” which reached number three on the New York Times Best Sellers list.
Since November 2017, Mr. Golic is teaming up with Trey Wingo on the new ESPN Radio weekday morning program, “Golic and Wingo,” which is simulcast on ESPN Television. Mr. Golic’s son, Mike Golic, Jr., is also part of the team bringing sports news and commentary to millions of fans.
