John Skipper and Dan Le Batard are partnering on a politically progressive sports company
quote:

Former ESPN president John Skipper and personality Dan Le Batard are partnering on a politically progressive sports media company. The new venture is described as the strategic opposite of Clay Travis’ Outkick, sources told Front Office Sports.

Skipper and Le Batard will build a diverse lineup of progressive sports voices, said sources. Their target list includes former ESPN colleagues Jemele Hill, Bomani Jones and Kate Fagan. 

Their still-unnamed startup has begun to seek sports talent in front of and behind the camera, said sources. Their strategy: sell various types of original content, from TV, radio and streaming sports shows to films and documentaries. 

Hill confirmed she’s had early discussions with Skipper.

“We’re trying to figure out the most productive way to work together,” she told Front Office Sports. “Both John and Dan know I have such a deep level of respect for them. So me working with them again always felt like it was inevitable.”

Just like Clay Travis, that's going to be annoying.

Why the hell does Dan Le Batard think his opinions are so desired? People want him to be funny. Dave Chappelle, who is a whole lot funnier, has the same damn problem. Nobody is tuning in for political guidance Dan. Just be funny.

They may as well pick up Forde, Florio, and Deadspin scraps so all the sports wokeness is quarantined in one site.
