Stephen A Smith

Sports fans have become accustomed to the antics of notorious sports media personality Stephen A. Smith, but a whole new audience got to experience Smith this week when the iconic ESPN analyst joined Hannity on Fox News to give his take on a major sports story.

Smith was invited on the show to discuss the traumatic head injury sustained by Miami Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa during Thursday night’s game against the Cincinnati Bengals. The injury came after Tagovailoa had already suffered an apparent head injury during the team’s game against the Buffalo Bills just four days prior but was allowed to return to the field.

“I’m going to admit it publically – he’s actually a friend of mine,” Sean Hannity said during the show while introducing Smith. “We have been friends for a long time. I’m losing all credibility with your audience for telling the truth about that. You’re a friend of mine. I love talking politics, I love talking sports with you.”

While Smith is a familiar face in the sports world, it was certainly odd to see him on a major network news channel that focuses primarily on politics – especially with the revelation that Smith is friends with Hannity. As a result, the sports world had plenty to say about it.

There’s a chance we could be seeing much more of Smith on Fox News after he revealed last month that he would “strongly consider” running for president.
