There is an old saying in sports and TV news, “You never want to replace the legend, you want to replace the person that replaced the legend.”
Mike Max is going to be the first guy in that saying.
WCCO announced that Max will be replacing Mark Rosen, who spent 50 years at the station and signed off last week.
“I grew up on WCCO and am honored to lead a part of its legacy with some of the finest people who work in television for one of the finest television stations in the country," Max said.
Max has been a Sports Anchor with WCCO going back to 1994 and the longtime host of "Sports To The Max" on WCCO Radio.
Rosen stepped away from the TV side of media to be home more often with his wife, Denise, who has been fighting a battle since doctors discovered a brain tumor last fall.
