Report: Shannon Sharpe leaves 'Undisputed' with Skip Bayless on Fox Sports

Shannon Sharpe, the Hall of Fame tight end, is leaving the morning show, "Undisputed," which he has co-hosted with Skip Bayless since September 2016, following a buyout with Fox Sports. Sharpe's departure is expected in late June after the conclusion of the NBA Finals. The move comes after tensions between Sharpe and Bayless spilled onto the air in January following Bayless' controversial tweet about Damar Hamlin. Sharpe no-showed "Undisputed" the next morning but confronted Bayless when he returned. Sharpe has not announced his next move, but with him goes "Club Shay Shay," his podcast that has over 1 million followers on YouTube. Sharpe previously served as commentator for CBS Sports' "The NFL Today" from 2004-2014. It is not clear who will replace Sharpe on "Undisputed." Bayless signed a four-year, $32 million contract with Fox Sports in 2021. This marks the second notable co-host break-up Bayless has experienced. Before joining Fox Sports, Bayless hosted ESPN's "First Take" alongside Stephen A. Smith until June 2016.
