Colin Cowherd Leaving ESPN


In not shocking news Colin Cowherd will be leaving ESPN and likely joining Fox Sports 1.   This is fascinating for a couple of reasons most notably his disdain for John Wall and the mass exodus of talent ESPN has had in 2015. We are all familiar with the hate toward Wall, stemming from him doing the Dougie before his first game and the ignorant rant Cowherd had the following days. It led to John Calipari recently telling Cowherd to relax when it comes to Wall and realize how much he’s grown.

The other is for sports radio nerds, this is part of a major change to ESPN Radio during the weekdays. Last month SVP and Russillo essentially ended with Scott Van Pelt taking on a new show in the fall on TV. Russillo has taken over the time slot for now with The Russillo Show but his contract with ESPN is up shortly and there hasn’t been confirmation on what’s going on with those negotiations. Cowherd, who had the 10am-1pm spot was a solo act so a brand new show will be coming to ESPN. The likely candidate? Ryan Ruocco, a young guy from New York who fills in quite a bit on Mike and Mike.

Just for the heck of it. One last time for you, Colin:

    Yay! My morning commute just got more interesting. No more reruns of Mike and Mike (which isn’t that bad) so I can avoid listening to the ever-increasing narcissism of Colin Cowherd.

    YAY! Now if we could just get him to leave planet Earth, and go back home.

    ESPN is cleaning house of all the jerk-offs it has accumulated. Long past due

    I think Colin has some pretty good takes. Besides John Wall, he is always very complimentary of UK

    What does “Colin Cowherd leaving ESPN” and “mass exodus of talent” have to do with one another?

      Lol, well done sir.

  8. Going to Fox Sports 1? He’ll never be heard from again. Their ratings are in the sewer.

  9. Yay!

    Excluding his feelings toward John Wall, I enjoy Cowherd in the morning and his take on sports from a business perspective. I thought CC and SVP & Rucssillo were two of the better national sports radio shows.

    I won’t miss that left wing nut job even a little bit. He’s smart as hell but a complete jerk. It’s unfortunate that people with that level of intelligence lack any common sense or decency.

      lol, your comment indicates your level of intelligence. Common sense, is just that. Knowing things the average person should know. Political idealogogy has nothing to do with common sense or decency. Those are personal and opinions.

      He may be smart, but judging by your comment you are not.

    Believe it or not, due to all the TV rights ESPN now pays to broadcast games and people cutting their cable to stream, their financial foundation has some cracks in it and if current trends continue, that foundation go get real shaky.

    Now getting rid of Stephen A Smith would be better.
