Mike North Returns

From Robert Feder's column this morning...

You didn’t really think Mike North was retiring from radio, did you?

Nineteen months after he announced he was quitting sports radio for good, North is joining ESPN Radio flagship WMVP 1000-AM as host of a weekly show on sports betting.

Starting this week, North and Carmen DeFalco will host “The Odds Couple” from 6 to 7 p.m. Fridays. DeFalco will continue to co-host from noon to 2 p.m. weekdays on ESPN 1000 with John Jurkovic.

“Mike isn’t just a sports talk legend, but his expertise in sports handicapping is second to none,” Adam Delevitt, senior program director of ESPN 1000, told me. “His record speaks for itself, and he and Carmen are going to keep ESPN 1000 listeners not only entertained, but maybe make a few bucks along the way.”
