Shannon Sharpe is taking his talents to The Worldwide Leader In Sports.
According to a report from Andrew Marchand and Ryan Glasspiegel of the New York Post, the Hall of Fame tight end will join ESPN’s “First Take” program and debate with Stephen A. Smith on Mondays and Tuesdays:
“Shannon Sharpe will square off against Stephen A. Smith on Mondays and Tuesdays on the ESPN debate program during football season, The Post has learned…
Sharpe co-hosted FS1’s “Undisputed” program with Skip Bayless from Sept. 2016 up until June of this year. Fittingly enough, it was Bayless who worked alongside Smith on “First Take” before the former left for FS1 in 2016.
Since Bayless’ departure from ESPN, the network has a combination of special guests to work alongside Smith. “Undisputed” has been off the air since Sharpe signed off two months ago, but it’s scheduled to return on Aug. 28.
The 55-year-old Sharpe was an eight-time Pro Bowler and four-time First-team All-Pro who earned an NFL 1990s All-Decade Team selection. After his playing career, Sharpe worked at “The NFL Today” on CBS before joining FS1 in 2016.
