Mike Francesa Ending Mike'd Up After Seven Years

By Marcus Vanderberg Comment

Radio talk show host Mike Francesa is ending his WNBC-TV Sunday night sports show, Mike’d Up, according to Newsday.com.

Ratings were strong during its seven years on the air, but Francesa wanted to spend more time with his family on the weekends.

Since the end of the NFL season, Francesa has hosted only three shows.

WNBC-TV sports anchor Bruce Beck has replaced him in his absence. No word on what WNBC-TV will do with the timeslot.
