WESTPORT, Conn. -- Westport resident Mike Greenberg and his partner, Mike Golic,, hosts of ESPN Radio’s weekday morning show “Mike & Mike,” will be inducted into the National Association of Broadcasters Broadcasting Hall of Fame.

The induction is Tuesday, April 19 in Las Vegas.

Since 2000, “Mike & Mike” has covered top sports news, games and drama with Golic and Greenberg’s contrasting personalities and witty rapport a highlight of each broadcast.

“Golic and Greenberg, with their mix of sports savvy and humor, have been informing and entertaining fans for more than 15 years,” said John David, National Association of Broadcasters executive vice president of Radio. “The two have seamlessly combined their passion for sports with radio, and we are honored to add them to our distinguished Hall of Fame.”

Greenberg joined ESPN in September 1996 as an anchor on ESPNEWS and also later anchored SportsCenter. Prior to joining ESPN, he worked as a sports anchor for CLTV, the regional cable news network in Chicago. While there, he covered all local sports teams, anchored sportscasts and hosted “SportsPage,” a one-hour Sunday night program featuring in-studio guests and viewer calls.

In 2007, Greenberg published his first book, “Why My Wife Thinks I’m an Idiot,” followed by his first novel in 2013, “All You Could Ask For,” both of which were featured on The New York Times best-sellers list. His third book, “My Father’s Wives,” was published in 2015.

Golic is a nine-year NFL veteran, where he played defensive tackle for the Houston Oilers, Philadelphia Eagles and Miami Dolphins.
