NFL Star's $18M Exit Leads to Morning Show Reorganization - Guess Who's Joining
Keyshawn Johnson, former NFL star, quickly finds new role as full-time co-host on FS1's "Undisputed."
Johnson is slated to replace Shannon Sharpe with Skip Bayless two months after Sharpe was laid off by ESPN.
According to the New York Post, Skip Bayless prematurely revealed Johnson's position due to contractual disputes.
Johnson bargains a buyout from ESPN's $18 million contract, allowing "Undisputed" to change.
Johnson has a long experience as an ESPN analyst, appearing on "Monday Night Countdown" and "Sunday NFL Countdown."
Richard Sherman, Michael Irvin, and Rachel Nichols are members of the redesigned "Undisputed" squad.
The summer break for the show will end on Monday, according to expectations.
