Stephen A. Smith has a new debate partner. The NY Post reports former FS1 personality Shannon Sharpe will be headed to ESPN to take on Stephen A. on Mondays and Tuesdays during the NFL season. Sharpe comes over after ending his partnership with Smith’s former co-host Skip Bayless.
Sharpe is also expected to have a new home for his Club Shay Shay podcast. ESPN has not offered a comment.
At the end of the June 13 episode of Undisputed, Sharpe thanked all of the team members for FS1 and tearfully spoke highly of his time with Skip Bayless.
