Outspoken sports radio host Jim Rome, who has previously hosted TV shows on Fox Sports Net and ESPN, brings his often-controversial takes to Showtime with this series -- which began as a monthly show before expanding to a weekly format in its fourth season -- that showcases his provocative opinions on the latest sports stories and interviews with sports figures. The hourlong program, part of Rome's overall deal with Showtime corporate sibling CBS Sports, also includes in-depth features and profiles of influential people in the sports and entertainment industries.

As the hosts of "Speak for Yourself," polarizing personalities Colin Cowherd and Jason Whitlock steer the daily studio show by presenting uniquely differing sports viewpoints. Friends and colleagues for several years, the always outspoken duo covers the biggest news and headlines each day, while additional segments include one-on-one interviews with guest athletes or newsmakers. Multimedia journalist Jason McIntyre, the creator and editor-in-chief of sports media blog The Big Lead, is a contributor on the show.
It seems interactive elements are the foundation upon which ESPN's talk show lineup is built, notably fueling ratings stalwarts "First Take" and "His and Hers," among others. Adopting that tried-and-true format is "Nación ESPN," dedicated to presenting relevant, diverse sports news and information tailored to young, bilingual U.S. sports fans. Driven by fan connectivity, lively debates and engaging discussions -- in both English and Spanish -- the weekly series is hosted by Jorge Sedano, Bernardo Osuna and Marly Rivera, whose varied sports journalism backgrounds and unique points of view are reflective of ESPN's diverse Hispanic audience.

Sportswriter-turned-TV personality Skip Bayless knows a thing or two about sports debates after participating in them for more than a decade at a competing network's morning show. Now at FS1, he gets top billing on "Skip and Shannon: Undisputed," a daily show that sees Bayless offering his hot takes on the latest sports news opposite Pro Football Hall of Fame inductee Shannon Sharpe, who expands his horizons beyond just pigskin. Joy Taylor moderates and must keep things under control when the debates get heated.

FS1's challenge to ESPN's "SportsCenter" in the form of "Fox Sports Live" lasted a little more than two years, with the effort failing in part because traditional sports highlight shows no longer have broad appeal. A new iteration focuses on the chemistry of returning co-anchors Jay Onrait and Dan O'Toole (this time they even get title recognition!) in a format that showcases their personalities, senses of humor and interviewing skills.
Hosts Michael Smith and Jemele Hill embraced debate on "Numbers Never Lie," featuring sports discussions based on analytics. But because new-age stats and "boring" are often found in the same sentence, and to focus more on opinions and less on data, "Numbers ..." became "His & Hers" in 2014. Inspired by Smith and Hill's successful same-named podcast, launched in 2012, the hourlong weekday TV program spotlights the hosts' chemistry as they talk about sports. Interviews and contributors remain in the mix, as well as the show's popular whiteboard videos.
The popular morning drive program, simulcast from CBS Radio's WFAN studio in New York, features former NFL quarterback and longtime CBS football analyst Boomer Esiason and veteran radio host Craig Carton talking sports for four hours each weekday. The state of New York sports is certainly a main topic of conversation, but the duo also discuss national stories and conduct interviews with current and former sports icons, league personnel, and a variety of national celebrities from the entertainment and music industries.
In 2013, Dan Le Batard brought his weekday Miami radio show to ESPN's national airwaves, continuing his longstanding relationship with the sports conglomerate that began at ESPN The Magazine and morphed years later to ESPN2 as host of the popular series "Highly Questionable." Now ESPNU gets into the act by serving as the simulcast home of Le Batard's three-hour national radio show. Joined by sidekick Jon "Stugotz" Weiner, Dan offers a unique blend of self-deprecating humor, insightful guests, and thought-provoking conversation about major sports issue of the day. As he says, "we look forward to making fun of the powerful, the cliché and ourselves."
