Changes are reportedly coming to Colin Cowherd's duties at Fox Sports 1. He is reportedly planning on leaving one of his shows.
Cowherd has been co-hosting Speak For Yourself on FS1 with Jason Whitlock. That will reportedly be coming to an end by the end of this year.
The Sporting News reports that Cowherd is planning on leaving the show to focus on other areas.
From the report:
Cowherd's weekday late afternoon show (5-6 p.m. ET) with Whitlock premiered in June 2016. If he leaves it, the 54-year old Cowherd is expected to focus on his long-running TV/radio simulcast, "The Herd with Colin Cowherd" (noon to 3 p.m. ET), and "Fox NFL Kickoff," his NFL pregame show with Charissa Thompson that has been making headway against ESPN's "Sunday NFL Countdown."
As Cowherd possibly heads for the exits on "Speak for Yourself," FS1 is looking to expand the show from one to two hours, said sources. FS1 has been airing Champions League matches on many weekday afternoons between the 3 p.m. close of "The Herd" and "SFY"'s 5 p.m. start time. But those soccer rights expire this year. FS1 is looking to expand a revamped "Speak for Yourself" from one to two hours (3-5 p.m. ET).
"The worst-kept secret at FS1 is they're going going to expand ['SFY'], Whitlock’s still on it and Colin's coming off," said one source.
This isn't too surprising. Cowherd's radio show has been doing very well and Speak For Yourself often features the host talking about the same topics he discussed on the radio.
FOX has reportedly declined to comment. Stay tuned.
