Fox Sports Finds a Foil for Skip Bayless

Aug 8, 2016  •  Post A Comment

Fox Sports is bringing aboard a formidable foil for Skip Bayless as it develops a new opinion and debate show around the veteran sports commentator.

The sports network announced the hiring of former NFL tight end Shannon Sharpe — a Pro Football Hall of Famer and three-time Super Bowl champion — to square off against Bayless.

The show is set to premiere Sept. 6 on FS1.

The announcement was made today by Jamie Horowitz, President, FOX Sports National Networks.

Said Horowitz: “We’re thrilled to have Shannon Sharpe joining FS1. We watched him sit across from Skip numerous times on ‘First Take,’ and we saw that he is both relentless and thought-provoking. The two have diverse backgrounds and different opinions, but come together with great chemistry on television.”

  1. Shannon Sharpe is probably the worst speaker television has ever seen. He talks like he has a mouthful of something. Poor choice.
