Stephen A. Smith‘s show on ESPN Radio will be replaced by “First Take, Your Take with Jason Fitz” on January 20th, 2020. But Stephen A. will still be heard weekdays during the same 1 – 3 pm shift.
Listeners will hear highlights from Stephen A. Smith and Max Kellerman‘s TV show “First Take,” and Jason Fitz will incorporate callers and guests, including regular appearances by Stephen A. Smith.
Jason Fitz began working for ESPN three years ago co-hosting the radio show “Spain & Fitz.” He and Sarah Spain were split up in May of this year, and Jason moved over to the 5-6 am shift to host “First & Last” and contributed to all four hours of “Golic And Wingo.”
Stephen A. Smith’s radio show is sunsetting as part of the almost $8 million-per-year deal with ESPN that was solidified earlier this year. Read more about these programming changes right here.
