Fox Sports said Skip Bayless, rejoining the organization after more than a decade at ESPN, will debut a new sports talk show on FS1 on Tuesday, Sept. 6, at 10 a.m. ET. Fox said more details about the show would be revealed in coming weeks. Bayless was a frequent contributor to Fox Sports shows in 2001 and 2002 before moving to ESPN, where he hosted First Take on ESPN2. He began his career as a sports columnists for newspapers including The Chicago Tribune and The Miami Herald. His move to Fox Sports was reported in April.

“Skip Bayless is one of the most incisive opinionists in all of media,” Fox Sports National Networks president Jamie Horowitz said in a release. “He’s equal parts fearless and relentless, and his rebellious spirit is a tremendous addition to the lineup of talent and shows that we are building for FS1.”

“To have the opportunity to do this show, at this network, with this team, is a dream come true,” Bayless said in the release. “I will always appreciate my time at my former employer, but this new FS1 show will truly let me be me. I am ready to unleash with Fox attitude.”
