On today’s episode of First Take, Skip, Stephen A. Smith, and Molly Qerim opened the show by addressing something huge. Skip acknowledged that he will be leaving the show and spoke about the reactions he has received to the news.
“I do want to thank the many people who responded by social media yesterday. Much love, even to the haters. But most of all, I want to thank this man sitting across from me for all he has done for me, and I’m gonna shake his hand, and I’m gonna tell him what I told him off the air last Friday: I love you, man. And that is from the bottom of my heart.”
