Here’s why Jones is leaving the ESPN daily show after today.
ESPN’s Highly Questionable won’t be the same after today.
Today’s show is the final episode for Bomani Jones.
Jones, who has been on the show with Dan Le Batard and Papi for four-plus years, will no longer be appearing on it after today.
He’s leaving to start his own ESPN daily with Pablo Torre.

Here’s what ESPN said about Jones and Torre’s new show in a release:
ESPN rising stars Bomani Jones, host of ESPN Radio’s The Right Time with Bomani Jones, and Pablo Torre, senior writer for ESPN The Magazine and ESPN.com, will host a newly created one-hour live program premiering Tuesday, Jan. 2, 2018 on ESPN from noon – 1 p.m. ET. More details about the show will be announced at a later date. The program will also be streamed live on the ESPN app and WatchESPN across all devices and platforms.
The duo is excited.
“Had someone asked me a year ago who I’d want to work with on a new TV show, I would have said Pablo Torre,” Jones said. “Now that it’s going to happen, I couldn’t be more excited. We have a chance to make something new, fresh and entertaining, and I can’t wait to take on that challenge.”
Highly Questionable will air at 4:30 p.m. E.T. on ESPN today.
