In commenting on the announcement, OutKick founder Clay Travis said, “Charly is an outstanding talent and will be a great asset for OutKick. It doesn’t surprise me she wanted to leave ESPN given their woke approach to sports and this is a great opportunity for her to join a platform that’s growing fast where she can speak her mind.”
Arnolt added, “I’m extremely excited to join OutKick and work alongside Clay and a great stable of talent. The outspoken nature of the platform and its ability to create engaging content is what really piqued my interest. I have a lot of opinions that I haven’t been able to express, and I can’t wait get started.”
Arnolt will continue her role as a reporter for UFC events. During Arnolt’s time at ESPN she was a host on First Take, SportsCenter and made regular appearances on ESPN+’s weekday morning show, SportsNation along with many other shows on the streaming service.
