Sports journalist Bomani Jones concluded his four-year stint as co-host of ESPN’s daily sports talk program “Highly Questionable” on June 22. Its original host Dan Le Batard noted that Jones’ arrival as co-host in 2013 helped “rescue the show” from pending cancellation.
“Highly Questionable” transferred from ESPN2 to the ESPN flagship in 2015.
The final seven minutes of the June 22 edition were dedicated to highlights with Jones:

In regularly comic fashion, Gonzalo “Papi” Le Batard provided this last moment for Jones — a proud display of his big, bare belly (a gesture that had usually disturbed Jones in the past).
In development is a new ESPN daily talk show with Jones and fellow network sports reporter Pablo S. Torre. It’s set to debut in January 2018.
