Colin Cowherd leaves ESPN, may join Fox Sports

A member of the ESPN community since 2003, Colin Cowherd has departed the Hartford, Connecticut-based studio in lieu of what is yet to be determined as his next career move. Various speculations have surfaced, stating Cowherd will likely join Fox Sports, which will reunite him with former co-host of SportsNation, Charissa Thompson.

ESPN President, John Skipper, had this to say about Cowherd’s leave of absence:

“We’ve enjoyed a mutually beneficial run with Colin for over a decade”. “He came to national prominence on ESPN with his unique perspective on sports and society. Endings also bring new beginnings, for ESPN and Colin, and we thank him and wish him the best.”

One benefit of leaving ESPN for fellow competitor, Fox Sports, would be the idea of tag-teaming with former SportsNation producer – and current Fox Sports President – Jamie Horowitz. In addition to SportsNation, the two have previously worked together for Cowherd’s Sunday morning football show, Colin’s New Football Show.

Colin Cowherd is the latest to turn his back on ESPN after Keith Olbermann and Bill Simmons jumped ship earlier this year.
