The news has saddened the fans all across. Many say the show had become a part of their every day early mornings and with the show being gone, there will always remain an unfulfilled void. The hashtag, ‘Thank you Golic’ has been trending on Twitter as a tribute. The last hour of the last episode of the show will have Golic’s entire family as a vote of thanks. Mike Greenberg honoured his former partner on Wednesday’s episode of Get up. “He did not just open a door for others, he built one’, said Goldberg.
“I never wanted to be someone who talked at you. I wanted to be someone who talked with you. I wanted it to be me and the Audience hanging out at the bar, having a cocktail and just shooting the breeze. Not just on sports, on life, on family, on everything…”, said Mike Golic to Tony Rizzo and Aaron Goldhammer on, ‘The Really Big Show’.
Keyshawn Johnson, Jay Williams and Zubin Mehenti’s show will replace , Golic and Wingo, on the ESPN radio. However, the network will not let go of Golic and he will be analysing the college Football games.
