The award will be announced on September 15 at the NAB Marconi Radio Awards Dinner in Chicago.
I'm sure this is a kick in the pants to Francesa critics like Phil Mushnick and Bob Raissman.
Another radio note, good guy Len Berman has decided to give up his update gig with radio legend John Gambling on WOR, he will be replaced by another good guy, WNBC's Bruce Beck.
Beck will also be taking over the WNBC Sunday night sports wrap up that is currently being hosted by Francesa. Francesa announced yesterday that he is giving up "Mike'd Up; The Francesa Sports Final" after 7 seasons to spend more time with his kids.
