BANGOR, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- After broadcasting for 15 years, the Mike And Mike show, that has been a part of several commuters morning drive is coming to an end on Friday.
Mike Elliott and Mike Dow have been broadcasting together on Kiss 94.5 since 1997. After celebrating their 5,000 show in August the duo decided that it was time to end things on a high note. "We want to be able to leave on our own accord, end the show the way we want to end it and leave while we're still having fun," says Elliott.
Blueberry Broadcasting, which owns Kiss 94.5, made the pair an offer. To stay within the company and work for two separate stations. Dow with WABK 104.3 FM and Elliott with 97.1 the bear. "They presented this to us as an opportunity not an ultimatum and we really appreciate that because they kind of respect the fact that we've been doing this for so long and it made it a little bit easier for us," says Dow.
The Mikes will start their new gigs next Monday. As to who will take their place, that decision is still up in the air. Negotiations are still in the works, but a replacement for the Kiss 94.5 morning show could be announced as early as next week.
