Fox Sports 1's Katie Nolan got a chance to sit down with sports talk radio overlord and professional Long Island stereotype Mike Francesa to discuss, well, probably whatever the hell Mike wanted to talk about. He's not exactly one to let others dictate the direction of a conversation. Luckily for her, she landed quite the scoop: Mike revealed that he plans to step away from his current weekday gig in 2017, meaning we have less than a year to bid farewell to the man who shaped the sports media landscape like a giant, frozen Diet Coke glacier.
