Sports radio star Mike Francesa is launching a new app "Mike's-On."

"I've wanted for a while to have my own content machine - my own content vehicle that I could control and that I would have the ability to go [on-air] when I wanted," he told TheStreet in an interview on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange. "I think there's a market for it."

The app launches Friday.

Meanwhile, Francesa is bullish on the sports gambling space, especially amid the recent Supreme Court ruling. 

"It will create value in the sports industry and it will help the states which are obviously in need of money," he said.
