You say you can't stand listening to him but you willingly do so anyway?

Everyone "hates" Mike yet he utterly destroys everyone in the ratings and is by far the most talked about sports radio personality on social media

I would say that its more of a case of people not liking him personally but loving his show

He's tops in the time slot

Who's Radio show is more entertaining?

I like(d) Dino Costa and he's a real Anti-Semite.

Pity he's gone. Hope he resurfaces elsewhere

exactly my point. If there was some1 else, he wouldn't be so popular. It's by default.
many ppl feel he is arrogant, pompous a**

Doesn't Michael Kay have a show on ESPN radio? That's not competition? I happen to think he's quite good.

Mike and mike in the morning are great.
I hate Colin cowherd. Mad dog is OK. Dan Patrick is a good listen. Hate schein on sports.
Life isn't about checking the boxes. Nobody cares.

Michael k is on at 4 I believe, mine Francesca starts at 1.
So I'll rephrase; there's no competition during the prime time hours

Michael Kay is on from 3:00 to 7:00 and Francesa is on from 1:00 to 6:30. That constitutes competition during prime hours.

I was in the middle of typing the post below when you commented.

Aside from the fact that he's a terrible radio host, Mike is also... not exactly anti-semitic, but something like that. After 9/11, he suggested that US support for Israel was the root cause of the attacks and started demanding of Jewish Americans that called in that they declare their allegiance to America over Israel before he would allow them to continue (forum discussion about it - link; Phil Mushnick article referencing the incident - link).
that's what they say, but supposedly WFAN destroyed the tapes or won't release.

I think I remember him saying it on 9/11. Its a shame nobody has come forward with those tapes, with dog. And I heard him vehemently deny it in 2009 when fighting Mushnick's articles bringing it up again.

Michael Kay is brutal

I think people enjoy Francesa a lot more than they are willing to admit. His ratings have only gotten better.....

La Greca is good though. The shows where he's hosting while Kay is out are always good.

It seems like hosting a big slot does that to you, though some probably start out more arrogant than others.
