The popular radio show will now simulcast on NBC Sports Philadelphia from 2 until 6 p.m. weekdays, effective Monday, March 4. Philly Sports Talk, which runs from 5-6 p.m. on weekdays, will air its last program on Friday, March 1.
“We’re pleased to extend The Mike Missanelli Show on NBC Sports Philadelphia, and it’s been a welcome addition to our line-up since joining last year,” said NBC Sports Philadelphia President Brian Monihan. “We remain committed to developing engaging content across multiple platforms, including NBC Sports Philadelphia, NBCSportsPhiladelphia.com, the MyTeams App and across social media.”
Added Monihan on Philly Sports Talk’s historic run: “Daily News Live was the first show that launched on then Comcast SportsNet in 1997, and it changed the way Philly sports fans discussed their hometown sports. Not many shows can survive for 21 plus years, but as consumer habits have evolved, now is the right time to move in a new direction. We thank everyone who has been a part of Daily News Live and Philly Sports Talk over the years– the talent, the crew and the countless guests and contributors.”
Philly Sports Talk’s Amy Fadool will take on host duties for Sixers Pre- and Postgame Live, while Marc Farzetta expands his role as a multiplatform host and reporter.
Daily News Live debuted on October 1, 1997, as Michael Barkann welcomed viewers to the brand new regional sports network. The show transitioned to Philly Sports Talk in April 2013. Notable guests on both programs included Charles Barkley, Rob Reiner, Larry King, Jim Cramer, Tony Robbins, Billy Jean King, Kareem Abdul Jabbar, Bill Walton, Matthew Perry, Billy Packer, John McEnroe and Jon Bon Jovi.
