FOX SPORTS RADIO has inked PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER columnist and former ESPN commentator STEPHEN A. SMITH to host a new weekday show starting JANUARY 4th in a time slot to be announced. SMITH, who will continue with the INQUIRER, which he recently rejoined, and who will continue to fill in for STEVE HARVEY on his syndicated morning show, will also be a regular contributor to other FSR shows.
"I can't begin to convey how excited I am to be with FOX SPORTS RADIO. I've thoroughly missed being on the airwaves expressing myself, my thoughts and my passions," said SMITH. "I'd like to express my sincere gratitude to the folks at FOX SPORTS RADIO for this tremendous opportunity. I'm hyped, psyched and ready to go. Buckle up and let's get this party started!"
"We couldn’t be happier to welcome someone of STEPHEN's caliber to the FOX SPORTS RADIO family," said FSR VP/GM DON MARTIN. "His broadcast experience and industry connections, combined with his tell-it-like-it-is style, will make a great addition to the top-quality, sports entertainment programming we deliver to our audience."
