Clay Travis has hosted his Outkick the Coverage show on Fox Sports Radio for nearly two years now, and according to a report today from John Ourand of the Sports Business Journal, Travis will continue to do so for at least a few more years.

Via Ourand:

Controversial sports media personality Clay Travis signed a multiyear deal to remain a national radio host for Fox Sports Radio and Premiere Networks.

Travis has hosted his morning show, “Outkick the Coverage,” since September 2016. Produced from Nashville in the 6 to 9 a.m. time slot on weekdays, the show is carried by 292 affiliates across the country.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

“There’s a huge opening in national sports talk radio, and I think we fill an untapped void,” Travis said. “What I try to do on radio is to be smart, original, funny and authentic every day. People may not agree with my opinions … but I think they do over time come to understand that there is a smart, original, funny and authentic vibe to what we do.”

Although the terms of the contract weren’t announced, Travis is going to gain an ownership stake in the show, which is just a facet of his nearly inescapable media presence; Travis writes, Periscopes, YouTubes, made Fox News appearances, and was even mentioned a few times during Fox’s college football coverage.

Presumably he’ll continue to do all of those things going forward as well.
