Is Bayless Sabotaging Fox’s Future?

  • "Undisputed" entered a two-month hiatus after Shannon Sharpe's departure.
  • Bayless is attempting to emulate Stephen A. Smith's style of a rotating debate panel.
Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

“Undisputed” host Skip Bayless has torn up his winning formula and is now emulating Stephen A. Smith. Front Office Sports senior writer Mike McCarthy stops by to explain the perplexing and ego-filled dilemma facing Fox — and why not everyone there is happy with the changes.

Plus, Comcast has a unique program connecting sports tech startups with some of the biggest sports properties in the world. Jenna Kurath, who runs the media giant’s program, joins the show to explain the initiative and how it can be a win for all parties.
