WFAN broadcaster Mike Francesa announces retirement again; last show Friday

NEW YORK CITY (WABC) -- New York sports radio broadcaster Mike Francesa has announced he's leaving WFAN.

The longtime radio host made the announcement over the air on Thursday, saying that Friday night will be his last regularly scheduled show.


Francesa has been a mainstay at WFAN for over 30 years as one of the most successful sports talk radio hosts in history.

However, this is not the first time that Francesa has called it quits over the past few years.

At the end of 2017, Francesa signed off of WFAN, but returned nearly five months later.

Then in November of 2019, he announced retirement for a second time, but returned once again a month later.
