Today Mike finally addressed the fact that his "new show" ain't exactly new. Specifically, he promised "someone" new very soon..
"And then I get asked about "where's the show. Where's all your guys?" I'm working on it. Listen, I'm putting together. I mean I just spent 19 years in the room with one guy...so you got to give me a little while to get through everybody. I'm trying to be fair...We are moving along at a rapid pace and we want to do this once and be done with this. This is not something we can do in 10 minutes. I mean I intend on being here in the room with the person for the next 6 or 7 years probably. I mean I already agreed to stay for another 5 1/2. I mean I might want to stay a couple minutes after that...who knows. So I know you are impatient. I know you wanna hear who it is and see who it is, we're working on it. I promise you. Feverishly. We are working on it."
What's interesting here is that Mike first declared that he would NEVER have a co-host again. But today he admitted "I intend on being here in the room with the person for the next 6 or 7 years probably.." Interesting change of course here. Could it be that Chernoff realized the show was a sinking ship without a co-host? Whatever the case, time to start your predictions. I'm thinking it is going to be somebody somewhat shocking...perhaps a Sid Rosenberg. Throw out your guesses...
