Here is the latest news from Neil Best who broke the Mike and the Mad Dog divorce story. As you will read, he is not backing off his claims that this duo is not staying together for long and that they both are attempting to find other broadcasting options.

Mike Francesa, Chris Russo set to reunite Friday
Well, friends, it's been more than two weeks since I dropped my bombshell about Mike Francesa and Chris Russo apparently heading for Splitsville this summer after 19 years together, and nothing I've heard since has led me to believe it isn't still true.
I keep hearing about both hosts playing contract footsie with non-WFAN entities, but vacation has gotten in the way of me officially advancing the story further - for now!
A major milestone in the saga is looming Friday, when the boys work together for the first time since June 18.
Each addressed the story individually - Chris on June 23 and Mike on June 27 - but this will be their first chance to do it together.
Maybe Chris will take a cue from John McEnroe's post-match interview of Roger Federer and offer an on-air hug.
