Josina Anderson Joins 'Undisputed' Panel

After NFL Hall of Fame great Shannon Sharpe left the FS1 sports talk show, “Undisputed,” it wasn’t known who would replace those big shoes left behind. Now, it has been reported that not only will it be one person filling those shoes, but a number of personalities and the latest one to join that panel is former ESPN sports reporter, Josina Anderson.

According to Athlon Sports, long-time reported and sports analyst Skip Bayless has added Anderson to the panel of personalities for the latest version of “Undisputed.”

The 45-year-old Anderson had previously worked at ESPN for nine years before leaving in 2020. She was named ESPN’s first female NFL insider in 2015.

While at ESPN, Anderson had made regular appearances on Sunday NFL Countdown, NFL Live, and SportsCenter. Before gaining employment at ESPN, she was a reporter for 6 years with Fox 31 in Denver. She also ran track as a student-athlete at the University of North Carolina.

She is currently working as CBS Sports’ Senior NFL Insider and will continue to do so.

After Sharpe left the debate show earlier this year, there was speculation as to who would take his place. That was ended when it was announced that a panel of sportscasters would be n the show during the week going forward. So far, former athletes have been added, all Super Bowl Champions. They include former Seattle Seahawks cornerback, Richard Sherman, Dallas Cowboys wide receiver, Michael Irvin, and Tamba Bay Buccaneer, Keyshawn Johnson.

Bayless’ former debating partner, Sharpe has recently signed on to join Stephen A. Smith on his ESPN show, “First Take.” He will appear on the show on Mondays and Tuesdays for the NFL season. This marks a return to the program for Sharpe. Before partnering with Skip Bayless over at FS1, Sharpe was a regular guest (in 2016) on First Take, which helped land him the spot opposite Bayless, who himself was a regular host on First Take before going to FS1
