ABOUT THIS ENTRY
THE SKIP BAYLESS SHOW is an all-new weekly podcast from the completely unfiltered mind of Skip Bayless, the award-winning host of FOX Sports’ popular sports opinion and debate show SKIP AND SHANNON: UNDISPUTED.
How does this represent “Excellence in Engagement”?
Skip dives into his 40-year career covering sports, telling stories and narrating what he has seen throughout his years. Whether it is through his television show, never missing a dribble from LeBron James and his famous 2am wake-up, no question is off limits. Known as the godfather of debate, THE SKIP BAYLESS SHOW is unprecedented, unfiltered, and unrivaled.
Objective: FOX Sports' goal is to deliver fans premium talent with compelling original content across every platform. THE SKIP BAYLESS SHOW, an all-new weekly podcast from the completely unfiltered mind of Bayless, the award-winning host of FOX Sports’ popular sports opinion and debate show SKIP AND SHANNON: UNDISPUTED airing weekdays on FS1, aligned with that strategy.
Strategy & Execution: Each week on THE SKIP BAYLESS SHOW, Skip breaks down that fourth wall by talking directly to his fans. The man with more than 3 million Twitter followers, but has historically followed no one, shares with his audience and fans just how he covers the world of sports.
Skip expresses his opinions on current and past news, recalls on memories, and answers fan no-holds-barred questions that would typically remain unanswered - on top of discussing the hottest topics in the world of sports with behind-the-scenes stories from some of the biggest moments in sports history.
