Raissman: Francesa insists WFAN exit plan isn’t a ploy

Not very original. Howard Stern performed this act every three of four years while working for K-Rock.

Mike (Sports Pope) Francesa’s Retirement Announcement Tour rolled on Wednesday with His Holiness again saying he will call it quits when his contract expires in 2017.

“It’s not a negotiating ploy,” Francesa contended during his WFAN soiree. “...What I said is true. It’s going to be the end of the road as far as doing this everyday. That’s what the plan is.”

Francesa first broke the news of his intention to end his WFAN ministry to Fox Sports One’s Katie Nolan Tuesday during her “Garbage Time” podcast.

“I’m not saying it (his departure from FAN) will be the end of me broadcasting,” Francesa said Wednesday. “I don’t think it will be. Or maybe I won’t do anything, I have no idea. But you know what, it’s been a heck of a run.”

A run that also recently included him butting heads with suits from WFAN and CBS, which owns the station. Francesa went out of his way claiming that relationship has been repaired.
