The Ringer Bill Simmons

For those wondering where Bill Simmons’ writing will be found in the future, wonder no more. On Wednesday morning, Simmons announced the impending launch of ‘The Ringer’, coming later in 2016.

In making the announcement, Simmons obviously couldn’t resist the chance to take another shot at his former employer.

While there’s obviously not to much to go on there, CNN’s Brian Stelter noted that The Ringer’s newsletter, advertised on the site’s launch page, will begin in mid-March.

The newsletter promises “Ringer updates, riffs from our writers, and the occasional Russell Westbrook GIF.”

When content on the site goes live, I’m demanding that the first article is an oral history of Johnny Knoxville’s ‘The Ringer’. It’s only natural, right?
