Sport Mike Greenberg delivers heartfelt speech in tribute to Mike Golic's ESPN Radio career
Tributes are already pouring in for Mike Golic during his final week on ESPN Radio
The countdown to the final Golic and Wingo has begun, with the final ESPN Radio morning show set to air on Friday. And that means it'll be the last time we hear Mike Golic on the Worldwide Leader radio airwaves, ending a decades-long run (although you can still see Golic appearing on ESPN after that when he goes back to working as a college football analyst). The Golic and Wingo account has started up a #ThankYouGolic hashtag that the show and so many fans are using to pay tribute and share some classic Golic moments all week.

And our silver lining here is all the amazing little quirks the NBA’s bubble is bringing us — some pretty cool and some absurdly weird.
Greenberg went on to say that made him a better father.
Then, he spoke about how Golic broke though as a broadcaster by first being an athlete.
“As a result, he didn’t just open a door for others, he built one,” he said. “There was no door before he came along. So Mike Golic changed the game for the hundreds of athletes who have followed in his footsteps, as well as the millions of sports fans who have enjoyed his company all these years.”
