If you thought that radio coverage of the Major League Baseball All-Star Game on July 16 consisted of a pregame show, the game, a post-game show and then everyone went home, you’d be wrong.
ESPN Radio has announced its plans for this year’s game. The game has become much more than a game.
The playing of the game itself is on July 16, but the radio festivities start on July 15 with “Mike & Mike” (6–10 a.m.) and then “The Herd with Colin Cowherd” (10 a.m.–1 p.m.). Both shows will broadcast live from Legends, a Manhattan semi-sports bar. Mike Greenberg and Mike Golic, hosts of “Mike & Mike,” will later on the 15th be the stadium announcers for the Home Run Derby at Citi Field. It will also be broadcast by ESPN Radio and ESPN Deportes Radio.
The day of the game will begin again with “Mike & Mike” followed by “The Herd with Colin Cowherd.” Ultimately at 7 p.m. the pregame show will start and then the game follows at 8 p.m. ESPN’s regular “Sunday Night Baseball” team led by Jon Sciambi will crew the game. The game will also be carried by ESPN Deportes Radio.
