Jason Whitlock Out At FS1: The Real Reason Why
Jason Whitlock is out at FS1 as of June 1. The real reason why was revealed shortly after it came out that his deal with the network was done.
Whitlock has been a mainstay on FS1 for years in a show called “Speak For Yourself.” That all ended today.
According to multiple reports, the root dilemma between Whitlock and FS1 was money. He wanted more of it than FS1 was willing to give up.

In a follow-up report, Andrew Marchand of the New York Post reported that Whitlock was considering launching a Ringer-like network similar to what Bill Simmons had done.
Whitlock had been at the network since 2016.
It will be interesting to see what his next move will ultimately end up being.
