NYC Radio: Mike Francesa Says Entercom Deal 'Is Simple'

On Saturday evening, NYC's sports talker Mike Francesa went on Twitter and admitted that he has not signed a “long-term” contract with WFAN 660 AM /101.9 FM.

The Tweets were posted shortly after The NY Post had a story that WFAN managment was thinking about life 'after Mike'.  Francesa apparently referred to the story by dismissing “outrageous misinformation” and publishing the actual statement.

And in a surprise development, Francesa also said he would “consider” taking on a partner to work with him.

Francesa, of course, has been solo for over a decade since breaking up with The Mad Dog. He also added his app is still a priority.

According to the NY Daily News, , the notion Francesa could split has kicked in inside the FanCave.

New York’s other tabloid, The NY Post,  has reported that station management spoke to Adam Schein of SiriusXM to gauge his interest in joining (he apparently decline accepting a new contract with SiriusXM) , or replacing, Francesa should he depart again. The Daily News cites sources as saying WFAN have also met with ESPN’s Max Kellerman.

In a statement after the Post story his the streets, WFAN program director Mark Chernoff said: “We are 100% committed to Mike Francesa, who is the #1 Sports Radio talk show host in afternoon drive. There is absolutely no truth to any reports about Adam Schein joining WFAN.”
