ESPN’s famous Mikes are splitting up.

Mike Greenberg will begin a new morning show on January 1, 2018, the network announced on Tuesday. According to the network, the show will feature “several” full-time co-hosts, guests and contributors. It will air from 7-10 am ET on ESPN — a spot currently held by SportsCenter — and then re-air on ESPN2 at 10 am ET.

Reports of Mike and Mike splitting up have been circulating for months. The two have been together since Greenberg first filled in as a co-host on Golic’s ESPN radio show in 1998.

“One of the many benefits of working at ESPN is that change and evolution are in our DNA,” said Greenberg in a statement released by the network. “My run with Golic has been an incredible experience that I’ll always treasure, but having the chance to engage multiple voices every morning in a dialogue on each day’s sports stories will be a great new challenge.”

Mike Golic will be co-hosting a new morning drive show on ESPN Radio with Trey Wingo that will air from 6-10 am ET “later this fall”, according to the network. It will be simulcast at first on ESPN2 and later on ESPNU when the lineup changes are finalized. His son, Mike Golic Jr., will also join the show from the 6-7 am EST hour each day.
