Mike 'Chico' Bormann

Mon-Fri: 7p - 12a

Mike "Chico" Bormann is a Northeast Ohio native and an Ohio State grad - a perfect fit for our Ohio State Football postgame show.

Chico is the FAN's weeknight evening host, after working 12 years in Erie doing sports talk and play-by-play broadcasting but absolutely loves golf.

He began playing in early 90’s, which coincided with fellow lefty Phil Mickelson’s rise to stardom who is still his favorite player.

Favorite course: Whispering Woods in Northwest PA.

Unbelievable golf story: Broke my ankle on the 18th hole requiring a plate and 11 screws to fix.

Golf dream: A trip to Augusta and the Masters.

    Raise the norm. It's short, simple, and to the point. It also sent sirens going off in my head when I heard Freddie say it that third week in August. That is exactly what this team did over the...
