What? One of America’s most provocative and out-spoken media personalities, Skip Bayless, is leaving ESPN, according to this statement put out by the company earlier today:
“Skip Bayless has decided to leave ESPN when his contract expires at the end of August. His final appearance on First Take will be the day after the NBA Finals conclude. We want to thank Skip for his many contributions to ESPN. His hard work and talent have benefited ESPN for 12 years.”
Pending his departure from ESPN, he is said to be heading to Fox Sports where he will join former First Take co-worker, Jamie Horowitz.
No further comments have been released at this time.
