Goodbye ESPN, Hello HBO!
Sports and culture writer Bill Simmons has officially joined HBO.
HBO announced Wednesday that it welcomes Simmons to his new home and that his talk show will debut in 2016. According to NY Times, his contract starts with HBO in October.
In addition to the talk show, Simmons will have a production deal and will do podcasts. This all comes at the heel of ESPN ending its relationship with Mr. Simmons in May.
I'm sure sports fans and writers are curious to see what Simmons will create over at HBO, especially since he helped created one of the best features at ESPN, "30 for 30" documentary series.
