NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) - Giants quarterback Eli Manning has signed a multi-year agreement to join Mike Francesa for a weekly appearance during the football season, the WFAN host announced late in his broadcast on Wednesday afternoon.
Manning, who previously had a weekly spot on ESPN New York, is scheduled to be heard at 5:05 on Mondays following Giants games. The appearances will run throughout the entire season.
“I look forward to talking about our games each week with Mike,” Manning said. “As anybody who has listened to Mike on The NFL Now on Sunday mornings knows, he understands, appreciates and enjoys discussing the Giants and the rest of the National Football League. Again, I look forward to joining the conversation with Mike and speaking directly with our fans on our flagship radio station.”
“Having Eli every week is guaranteed to give listeners the best commentary, insight and discussion with a perspective only he can offer on the New York Giants,” Mark Chernoff, Vice President of Programming, CBS RADIO New York and WFAN Operations Manager, said. “This will be appointment radio at its best.”
As the flagship station of the New York Giants, WFAN airs every Big Blue game throughout the regular season and postseason.
