Shannon Sharpe, one of the most outspoken and entertaining sports analysts on television, is set to depart from “Undisputed,”. It is the popular daily sports debate show on FOX. He and Skip Bayless have been co-hosting the show since its inception in 2016. Their lively banter has been a staple of FOX Sports’ programming.
It has been reported that Sharpe is set to leave the show following the conclusion of the NBA Finals in June. Additionally, he plans to take along with him “Club Shay Shay” podcast which was previously aired on Fox Sports, according to sources.
This news comes as a surprise to many fans of the show who have grown accustomed to Sharpe’s charismatic personality and his entertaining on-air chemistry with Bayless.
Rocky Moments Between Shannon Sharpe And Skip Bayless
Although Sharpe and Bayless have shared a great on-air rapport, there have been some rocky moments between the two in the past.
Sharpe and Bayless had a disagreement on the show which was observable to the public following an incident involving Bills safety Damar Hamlin. He collapsed on the field in a Week 17 game against the Bengals.
Amidst the chaos of Hamlin’s collapse and the cancellation of the game, Bayless expressed his concern in a powerful plea via Twitter.
As the unforeseen circumstance arose, he raised doubt about how NFL could handle it and pondered whether rescheduling a crucial match at this point in the season would have an influence on its final result. This had implications as it might either make or break someone’s playoffs prospects. However, considering what was currently happening before their very eyes, such concerns seemed trivial and unimportant.
Shannon Sharpe is also close with LeBron James. Bayless is known for his criticism of the Lakers superstar. The disagreements have caused some on-screen tension between Sharpe and Bayless in the past. Despite their differences, Sharpe and Bayless have managed to maintain a strong working relationship over the years.

Nor have any Fox Sports representatives given their opinion regarding this matter when asked to comment.
