Future of 'Mike and the Mad Dog' still in limbo

Here is the latest on the proposed merger of XM and Sirius Satellite Radio, which if it goes through would provide a broad array of sports programming choices for subscribers - likely at a premium if you want all that both services have to offer.

Will one of Sirius' offerings be Chris Russo, currently of WFAN?

That continues to be the most likely landing place for Russo if the "Mike and the Mad Dog" show breaks up this summer. (Sirius people haven't returned my calls or e-mails for a month now. Hmm.)

And Russo continues to be the more likely of the two co-hosts to depart.

Memo to everyone in cyberspace who has doubted my original story of June 22 on this subject: If I was 77 percent sure then that the show would be over soon, I am 88 percent sure now.

Stay tuned . . .
