Clay Travis, Mr. Stick To Sports, was Jamie Horowitz's pick to become the "big star" at Fox Sports 1, with the condition that he couldn't discuss politics anymore.

Quote:
Months before he was fired, FS1 boss Jamie Horowitz attempted to make Fox Sports radio’s Clay Travis, the next “star” of the network by giving him his own television show.

There was a catch: All Travis had to do to land the gig was ditch his principles.

According to two sources inside Fox Sports, Horowitz contacted Travis in March and offered him the show “if he abandoned all discussion of politics.” The sources said Horowitz told Travis he could “never” tweet about politics, talk about politics, never “touch it at all.” Travis, who has often defined himself as a “radical moderate” discusses politics on multiple platforms, including his early morning radio show.


Quote:
When we contacted him via telephone, Travis declined comment.

The sources said Horowitz tried closing the deal by promising Travis major moolah. He waved dollar signs in Travis’ eyes telling him he took Skip (Undisputed) Bayless from making $180,000 per year to now earning $6 million per. He said Bayless had the perfect sports perspective because he only deals in sports opinions. Horowitz told Travis he would make him “filthy rich” if he would JUST talk about sports. Travis, the sources said, waited a day to think about the offer.
