One of sports talk radio’s most famous pair is breaking up: ESPN’s long-running talk show “Mike and Mike” is coming to an end.

The eponymous co-hosts of the show, Mike Greenberg and Mike Golic, have been on the air together since 1998. The network has announced recently that the show is going off the air later this year. The two addressed the split during their Wednesday, May 17 show.

But rumors are circulating that the show might end sooner than that, because of two Mikes’ souring friendship. Staffers on the show have characterized the off-air relationship of the two as “poisonous.”

Like all relationships, business partnerships require maintenance, patience and understanding. Larry talks to business partnership strategist Patty Soffer on how to go about launching - and keeping - a successful business partnership.
