Mike Francesa and Christopher “Mad Dog” Russo, who hosted a popular sports talk radio show for 19 years on WFAN, were up for the National Radio Hall of Fame, but they didn’t get enough support from their loyal fan base.

They were nominated in the “Spoken Word On-Air Personality” category, which is determined by a fan vote. Michael Savage, a conservative talk-show host, won the induction.

FRANCESCA AND THE DOG TO REUNITE

Vincent Nallozzi reported:

“Mike Francesa and Christopher Russo, former sports-talk radio partners who ruled the format for nearly 20 years on WFAN in New York before parting for solo careers in 2008, are reuniting to host a live-broadcast one-night performance on March 30.

The event sold out within 24 hours after tickets went on sale in December. “The idea that we sold out nearly 6,000 seats in such an incredibly famous venue is overwhelming,” said Mr. Francesa, sitting with Mr. Russo, better known as Mad Dog, at a recent Rangers game at Madison Square Garden.”
