WFAN’s Mike Francesa Blasts ESPN For Allegedly Stealing John Tortorella Story [Audio]

Earlier this afternoon, the New York Rangers fired coach Mike Tortorellla. But that’s just where the fun begins.

Apparently, Mike Francesa of  WFAN 660 AM in New York was the first to break the story on-air.

Roughly 15 – 20 minutes later, ESPN apparently ran the story of the firing where they credited a “source” for the news, not WFAN. Francesa caught wind of this and went off.


Did you get all of that? I guess Francesa (who is based in NY) had the inside scoop before anyone and was upset ESPN credited a source rather than him or the station. A whole lot of fuss about nothing if you ask me. But it is amusing to hear Mike’s rant.
