MIKE AND THE MAD DOG: THE FULL COVERAGE

If you are among our loyal readers or just finding this site for the first time due to the news that Chris Russo is leaving WFAN, we want you to know that we have the full story from all sides. (Newsday, NY Times, Daily News and NY Post) The links are below and on the right side of the page.

We've been posting since news broke and you can find links to the various newspaper reports with quotes from Mike and Chris along with our takes on what happened, where we go from here and what we will never hear again now that Mad Dog has run away.

We want to be clear. Crystal clear that the beat goes on with us here at Mike and the Mad Blog. We will cover Mike as a solo artist and we will track Chris and potentially purchase a subscription to Sirius if necessary.

One thing is for certain we will NOT be changing the name of this blog. We like it. And would any of you go to a site called Francesca on the Fan Blog? Neither would we.

So read away, we got you covered.

That's a terrific job out of you, 1fan.

I'll still be aboard, if only because I'm that pathetic. I'd like to hear what Chris is up to every now and again. My mom has satellite radio in her car, but listening to WFAN has rendered me unable to figure out the technology...that, and I don't want to just sit in my mom's car in the garage listening to Russo. I might find myself connecting a tube from the exhaust into the car, getting in, and shutting all the windows.

In any case, good job out of you guys.

I'll second the "good job out of you guys" comment. You guys were writing that Russo was a bit off his game the last few weeks. Maybe he had one foot out the door. Unprepared for interviews, and talking about off topic stuff endlessly. I found one example but I remember reading others. . .

You're right 41. It was FTLT's post from the early days of the blog in May.
