    I wonder how Michael Kay feels about it now that they will be in the same exact time slot.

    Michael Kay and LaGreca mentioned it yesterday. If you're on twitter follow @BackAftaThis, its a lot about Mike Francesa, and they posted video of Kay and LaGreca's reaction

    Im sure people will be walking on egg shells at WFAN when Mike comes back. Boomer cant stand him, Mike ripped CMB after like the first month. Carlin is probably super pissed b/c he left his gig in Philly to take the job at WFAN afternoon drive.

    Yup, circus incoming. Sucks for those employed at WFAN. Media and listeners will have a field day with this all though.

    It's just ridiculous that, after his year and a half farewell tour, he's coming back after only four months - which is basically what Kay said.

    Will he give back all the gifts he was given when he was leaving?

    He is an narcissist bastard who thinks he's saving the sports world in NYC by his return. Saving them from what I have no clue ?

    Francesa went above the station’s head, to its parent company, Entercom, and its president, David Field, according to The Post’s Andrew Marchand, to pull the strings on his return.

    There is barely anyone in the FAN’s offices who wanted Francesa to return. This was done at a corporate level.

    The vice president of his station, Mark Chernoff, did not want Francesa back, according to sources.

    Finally some karma for Chernoff. Serves him right for killing the classic rock format on WPLJ

    When was WPLJ classic rock? Before Q104.3, 102.7 WNEW use to be the classic rock station. By the way what happened to CBSFM 101.1? That was always the "oldies" station but last week they played Baby's Got Back. Is that considered "oldies" these days? I know theyve been playing Pearl Jam/Nirvana for a few years but to hear a rap song was kind of mind boggling.

    Russo was just on Kay and the 4 of them were back and forth between bashing the Pope and bashing FAN, etc.

    I think it's the same as the classic rock stations basically becoming 80s stations now. Time moves forward.

    Most happy about this: FAN shareholders that saw ratings and advertising dollars plummet after he left. Love him or hate him, he brought in listeners/advertisers and in turn $$$. Hence Chernoff wasn't involved in the decision, in fact I wouldn't be surprised if the new owners (the same ones that wouldn't pay him in the first place) approached him hat in hand asking if he'd consider coming back.....

    I'm glad he's back. The new show was beyond awful. I don't listen to FAN as much as I used to since I have SXM now but I'm glad I have that option again.
