The Daily News is reporting that Max Kellerman has left 1050-ESPN Radio and is being considered as the partner for the WFAN drive time show.
It seems to make a lot of sense, both stylistically and in terms of demographics. Max certainly evokes the manic style that when paired with Mike delivered huge ratings for the long running Mike and the Mad Dog show. Also, he complements Francesa on his weakest area, which is statistical analysis. That should help bring in the younger, more computer savvy audience that Mike appeals to less. As a long time fan of both shows, I’m hoping a deal gets done.
