Can you say Co-Host On Deck

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...

i think that sid is too big of a risk, they've done that dance before and i think mike is going to want a fresh face or someone that makes an impact.

How about Sarah Palin?

Get Sarah Palin and we'll finally have someone talking hockey on the FAN in the afternoon.

I think its gonna be Sal Lacotta in all honesty..Sal gets on the air every chance he gets.

Mike also mentioned how Dog is hiring a lot of people. Have their been any defections from the FAN?

no way it's Sal Lacotta. He doesn't have the stones to stand up to Mike

No chance of Sal. It's got to be someone big or shocking. Otherwise people will kill them for making a big deal out of a nobody. It's got to be someone with some name value..

Valid point,

Has to be Chris Carlin.

Scratch Olbermann from the list of potential co-hosts

lt sam weinberg said...

some quick thoughts are: mike breen, jim nantz, bruce beck, gus johnson.

Id love Gus Johnson..he like my favorite broadcaster..

PS- What do you think of Mike mentioning Russo's show..

I officially nominate Dr. Blogstein of the Dr. Blogstein Radio Happy Hour as co-host. He was named as a possible replacement for Artie Lange before he agreed to come back to Howard. Now this opening should be his.

it's prob not gonna be a co-host, but more of a side-kick...like Howard Stern has Robyn...or the Boomer/Carton have Chris Carlon kinda deal.

I hope it's Sid Arthur Rosenberg.

just noticed Sid has 'mikefrancesca.com' listed on his website under reccomended sites

(cont. cause i'm an idiot) which probably makes him ineligible.

It's probably going to be some minion with no backbone. Someone who is simply there to feed Mike, as he is tiring of feeding himself. His ego won't allow someone to disagree with him, hence his spotty relationship with Dog. So it won't be Carlin. You couldn't even fit those two in the same room. It doesn't look good for the king of cake.

It's not going to be Carlin or anyone like that in my opinion. Mike made it sound like there are some negotiations going on...none of that would be necessary with guys like Carlin...i just see it as someone more surprising..

Billy Wagner perhaps? I hear he needs a new career? How about bloody sock boy Schilling?

It's Sid Rosenberg. Guaranteed.

If it is the sidekick angle, I really think Benigo would be the guy. He's goofy in some ways like Russo.
