Going by the ratings, no one wants to see scuttling opinion-haver Colin Cowherd and motivational speaker Jason Whitlock on their televisions. Despite this, they will be the new hosts of a Fox Sports show tentatively titled Speak For Yourself. (There’s still time for Fox to take up our suggestion to just cut to the chase and call it All Takes Matter; they can have that one for free.)
SportsBusiness Daily’s John Ourand reports that Fox Sports 1 will kick off the show, scheduled to air in the afternoon Monday through Friday, sometime this month. Ourand describes the concept for the show as similar to the style of Pardon the Interruption, the ESPN debate show that features Tony Kornheiser and Michael Wilbon, two people who actually have a rapport and are, even at their worst, significantly less loathsome than these two.
A spokesperson for Fox Sports declined to comment when asked for more details.
