NEW YORK (AP) -- Fox Sports 1 will simulcast "The Mike Francesa Show," starting March 24.

Fox Sports and CBS Radio's WFAN in New York announced Wednesday that they reached a multiyear agreement to bring the show to the fledgling sports television network. The Francesa show will air weekdays from 1 p.m.-4 p.m. Eastern on Fox Sports 1. The final two hours of the show (4 p.m.-6 p.m.) will be aired on Fox Sports 2.

Francesa has been a staple on New York radio for more than two decades, first co-hosting a show with Chris Russo, and then on his own for the last six years.

Francesa's show had been simulcast on the Yankees' Yes Network for years, but was dropped earlier this year.
