The Lounge>Jason Whitlock out at FS1

Come speak to us JWhit!


https://www.outkickthecoverage.com/j...k-leaving-fs1/


Jason Whitlock has left FS1’s Speak for Yourself, Outkick has learned. Whitlock’s contract expired this past Sunday and the two sides were unable to reach an agreement. Fox Sports PR and Whitlock were not immediately available for comment.

Outkick became aware that something might be up when we noticed that Whitlock was not on today, not in the guide for the show in the next two weeks, and had been removed from the SFY Twitter avatar.

Whitlock joined FS1 in 2016. At the outset, he co-hosted SFY with Colin Cowherd, before a stint where he was the solo host. Marcellus Wiley joined the program as new co-host in 2018. Before the pandemic hit, the show had been garnering viewership momentum.

His takes still suck ass. He was awful on Tyreek.

He was a mess early on in his TV career; seemed compelled to hot take everything and was a KK-Style bomb-thrower more than anything.

He still enjoys his hot takes, but he's not like he was back in the day when he was essentially a super-sized Skip Bayless. And now he'll at least make some sort of cogent (if wrong-headed) argument in favor of whatever weird stance he happened to take at that moment.

I wouldn't say he's even in the top half of guys I truly enjoy listening to these days, but I'll pick and choose segments he's done on Youtube on occasion and find them at least interesting.

10 or so years ago I'd have said "eh, who cares? Guy sucks..." but now I think he's actually decent at this and will probably find a way to a decent enough gig somewhere.
This. He is vastly improved lately. I watched some of these TV talk shows on cable this last season for Chiefs stuff. His show was consistently better than most.

Yo JWhit whats next for you man? I binge watch your clips on YouTube. Specifically and timely, I appreciated your level headed takes regarding race in that it was intended to be heard by middle Americans as much as it was to the East/West coast. I hope whatever you do next they have that same visibility (read: no paywall). Us everyday folks don't have the budget for that stuff.

I saw an old clip of Terez Paylor, along with Teicher and the gang, where he picked Nathan Peterman out of the 2017 draft as the QB that would be the most ready to contribute to an NFL team.

Fatlock has held a grudge against the Chiefs for a long time and routinely picks against them. Hopefully, I never have to hear or read his opinion again.

Whitlock's a good dude, and if you don't agree with all his takes that's fine. You aren't supposed to.

Of all the people you could complain about, in a world where Skip Bayless has no shortage of work, Whitlock seems like he should be way down the list

He said GD off camera in response to a donut shortage. He'll never work in this business again unless he sells his soul to.. well, you know.

Jason seems to wear out his welcome everywhere he goes. I did feel he was finally settling in on Speak For Yourself. I found myself disliking Marcellus Wiley much more than Jason wich I really thought could never happen.

Wouldnt it be something if KK and Witless teamed up together back in KC on an upstart new sports radio show. Id tune in just to listen to the fireworks.
