WNBC-TV will continue to produce a Sunday night sports wrapup show, even though Mike Francesa no longer will host it, a person familiar with the station’s plans said, with long-time Francesa fill-in Bruce Beck expected to be the permanent host. Francesa has decided not to continue with the program after seven years. For now the plan is to continue calling it, “Mike’d Up.”
