FS1 Executive Addresses The Katie Nolan Situation

The Fox Sports 1 executive spoke vaguely about Nolan.

What is Fox Sports 1 doing with Katie Nolan? has been one of the most-popular questions in sports media circles for a coupe of months.

Nolan, a rising star according to some, hasn't been seen on FOX's airwaves in quite some time. She had a show, Garbage Time, that ran three seasons, but it ended in February. It was believed FS1 was working on something new for her, but nothing has developed.

There have been some rumors surrounding her, too, like a possible move to ESPN.

Today, Fox Sports 1 executive Eric Shanks spoke about the uncertainty surrounding Nolan. He didn't reveal much.

From Kevin Draper of the New York Times:

“We’d love to keep Katie as part of the Fox Sports family, either now or in the future,” he said. But when asked why, if Fox Sports executives like Nolan, they can’t find a show for her, Shanks shrugged.

“I’m wondering that question too,” he said.

Nothing there sounds very promising...
