One of the loudest morning yelling sports shows is reportedly going to have a big change coming soon, as Shannon Sharpe is set to leave Fox Sports 1’s Undisputed shortly after the NBA Finals, according to the New York Post.
Sharpe and Fox Sports, according to the report, have reached a buyout agreement which will end his run with the show that he joined in 2016.
The former NFL great has spent many mornings arguing with his co-host, Skip Bayless, and it seems as if tensions between the two have led to this move.
Shortly after the news came out, fans pointed to a heated moment between the two that came last December while they discussed Tom Brady’s career versus Sharpe’s career.
Was this the tipping point? We obviously can’t say for sure that it is but if you watch this video you’ll understand why Sharpe wants to be done with this show and with Bayless.

No matter what's said after, it's over https://t.co/m9nEq5YxM3
I hope skip apologized for this and it was all for ratings because man, this was bad. https://t.co/CtNVjCjPDk— Vincent 🔅 (@VincentKeyes1) June 1, 2023
I remember thinking he was done when I watched this that day. No coming back https://t.co/Wuq5TsVtel— contradiction🧡💙 (@jobNotDone00) June 1, 2023
Personally I'm happy for @ShannonSharpe for leaving. Skip has proven time and time again that he's a POS. I've had a pretty similar experience to this with someone I thought was a friend. https://t.co/i0PKS7NVSR— Raven Reeves MC⚡DC (@Ravemasta) June 1, 2023
This was it. He didn’t wanna leave right after but this was the last straw. https://t.co/du5rCCxb0v— Back Beaters University Alum (@JordanHMichael) June 1, 2023

Can’t believe he stayed months after this happened https://t.co/NZ2AjgOiXr— Shnem (@Shnem207) June 1, 2023
Beginning of the end for sure https://t.co/1VEQR98x9D— Borey (@TheHoodEconomis) June 1, 2023
