WFAN sports talk radio personality Mike Francesa is launching his own digital platform, “Mike’s On,” which will cost subscribers $8.99 per month or $98.99 annually.

The new platform, which is in partnership with CAA Sports and Entercom, will include live video and audio streaming of Francesa’s afternoon-drive WFAN radio show, which is also called “Mike’s On.” Additionally, the platform will feature original content.

The “Mike’s On” platform will be the home of “Mike Francesa’s Football Sunday Show,” college football pregame series “The Saturday Special,” and a recurring preview/recap of the 50 biggest sporting moments on the calendar, “Francesca50.” It will also have “additional and immediate commentary from Francesa on major news and events,” according to a Thursday media release.

“I wanted to create my own exclusive platform to provide fans and subscribers with fresh content to complement the WFAN program they have known and trusted for decades, but with a level of information and immediacy they have never experienced before,” Francesa said in a statement. “If it’s breaking news at 7 a.m. or 1 a.m. after a crushing defeat, fans will hear from me instantaneously. No barriers. No restrictions.”

The “Mike’s On” digital platform will launch Friday at 1 p.m. ET/noon Central with an extended live radio broadcast of Francesa’s WFAN show from Belmar, New Jersey’s Bar Anticipation.
