Will FOX Sports Pay Shannon Sharpe $6 Million Like Skip Bayless When His Contract is Up | BlackSportsOnline
Fox Sports management has an important strategic decision to make before the next football season — and not just about NFL media rights.
Shannon Sharpe’s current contract expires after July 2021, sources said. The question now is whether Fox will finally compensate the three-time Super Bowl winner similarly to his controversial “Undisputed” co-host Skip Bayless.
Sharpe only earns about half of Bayless’ annual salary, said sources. The Pro Football Hall of Famer makes an estimated $3 million-plus annually vs. around $6 million for Bayless, the reigning enfant terrible of morning sports TV.
Yet FS1 has given Sharpe co-billing with Bayless since day one on “Skip & Shannon: Undisputed.”
At a time when the country is wrestling with racial equality, Fox has an “incredible opportunity to make a statement,” said a source. “Give Shannon Sharpe a contract that is equal pay for equal work.”
Max Kellerman has to feel some type of way, they openly trying to replace you while you still on air. I don't think he is as good as Bayless in that format but the corporate world is ruthless.
The duo would have done a daily ESPN+ show together, while being splashed over ESPN, including weekly spots on “Monday Night Football’s” halftime show.
The emphasis of the move was not to put the “First Take” band back together, but rather to bolster the network’s burgeoning new subscription platform, ESPN+.
The duo would have appeared on ESPN on a variety of programs in an effort to drive viewers to watch and subscribe to ESPN+.
Sharpe should get it, his charisma has been the anchor for the show.
Skip stay winning...
3.5 hours for 8 mil a yr
Troll gods stay winning
He also has to realize that he isn't as good as Skip in that role and never will be.
Skip was actually able to fool the audience because he had actual knowledge of what the fukk he's talking about. I never felt like Max did, he's 100% character and 0% analyst, Skip is moreso 80/20. The only sport people respect Max's take on is boxing and they don't talk about it much on First Take.
Skip and Shannon make all the headlines in the morning and their videos are always trending on youtube
Shannon has no filter and will be himself while skip can easily just play off that and steer the convo off that
Stephen A and Skip were good but not as entertaining
Just in time when Bron retires
Skip is gonna cry when Bron retires
