It was announced yesterday that Shannon Sharpe is leaving his co-host role on FS1’s hit TV show Undisputed, where he debates Skip Bayless on sport on a daily basis.
Skip and Shannon’s relationship has faltered over the years, with Shannon frequently finding himself in the awkward position of defending the unorthodox and often hateful comments made by the show’s executive host Skip Bayless.
Skip harbors an unusual hatred for LeBron James. And now LeBron James is finally getting his revenge on Skip.
It was announced yesterday that Shannon would not be ending his contract with Undisputed, instead accepting a takeover bid for the show.
Well, Media Take Out has EXCLUSIVE tea for you. According to a top-tier source, Shannon is in late-night negotiations to join LeBron James company Springhill Productions.
Springhill is a manufacturing, consumer goods and brand consulting company founded by LeBron James and Maverick Carter that produces shows like The Shop and aims to empower athletes by providing a platform to share their stories.
You know that Skip Bayless will have a hard time when he finds out what Shannon and Lebron have accomplished.
Shannon is a former professional football player who was a tight end in the National Football League (NFL) for 14 seasons, primarily with the Denver Broncos. He is considered one of the greatest tight ends of all time, ranking third in tight end receptions, receiving yards, and receiving touchdowns. He was also the first NFL tight end to rush for 10,000 receiving yards. He is the younger brother of former wide receiver Sterling Sharpe. Between 1998 and 2000, Sharpe won three Super Bowls in four seasons.
Sharpe played college football at Savannah State and was selected by the Broncos in the seventh round of the 1990 NFL Draft. During his 12 non-consecutive seasons with Denver, he was selected to seven consecutive Pro Bowls and four first-team All-Pros, and won two consecutive Super Bowl titles. Between tenures with the Broncos, Sharpe was a two-season member of the Baltimore Ravens, with which he earned an eighth Pro Bowl selection and won a third Super Bowl title. Sharpe retired through a tight end as the NFL leader in receptions, yards and touchdowns. After retiring, Sharpe appeared as an analyst for The NFL Today on CBS Sports and has co-hosted Skip and Shannon: Undisputed on Fox Sports 1 since 2016 with Skip Bayless. He was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2011.
