Shannon Sharpe announces his ‘Club Shay Shay’ podcast is teaming up with Colin Cowherd’s The Volume in a new content deal.
Former TE Shannon Sharpe is enjoying every minute of being a free agent in the sports media world. Unfortunately, that season is coming to an end for Sharpe, at least for his Club Shay Shay podcast. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the former UNDISPUTED host is teaming with his former FS1 coworker Colin Cowheard’s The Volume to co-produce the podcast going forward. Additionally, the two will collaborate on new original content for the podcast network which is home to Draymond Green’s podcast.
“I’m excited to partner with my friend Colin Cowherd and the creative team at the Volume,” Sharpe said. “The Volume has built an amazing platform that is the right fit to help Shay Shay Media reach the next level. That includes developing new shows and bringing on new talent under the Shay Shay Media brand.”
Cowherd echoed the same praise on the partnership as Sharpe who he worked alongside in the FS1 studio.
“There are very few people in sports media that cut through like Shannon Sharpe,” Cowherd said. “We are excited to partner with him and his team Shay Shay Media and co-produce original content with them.”
Club Shay Shay has become a premier destination for conversation about sports between athletes and also for entertainers in general. While his podcast has a new home the big announcement we are awaiting is where he will land for his return to television. Stephen A. Smith feels pretty confident ESPN will land Shannon Sharpe on First Take. Hopefully, ESPN can reach an agreement because Stephen A. Smith and Shannon arguing will be peak daytime entertainment.
