Former Miami Marlins president David Samson is the latest personality to join Meadowlark Media.

On Thursday, Meadowlark announced Samson’s hiring. He’ll host two shows for the network – the existing Nothing Personal with David Samson and a new show called The Sporting Class alongside former ESPN president John Skipper, which will focus on sports business.

He will bring his flagship program, Nothing Personal with David Samson under the Meadowlark umbrella, which debuted in 2019. Meadowlark will produce the daily show, which leverages Samson’s inside knowledge, as the former club president decodes trending stories on team owners, management and players.

Samson and Meadowlark CEO and former ESPN President, John Skipper will launch and co-host The Sporting Class, which will cover the most pressing topics in sports business. Samson and Skipper currently guest host an hour of The Dan Le Batard Show every other week, but will now make their program a standalone show, with the two executives uniquely positioned to opine on the industry.

Samson also tweeted about joining Meadowlark Thursday, noting that he’ll continue on as an MLB analyst for CBS Sports.

The Dan Le Batard Show also tweeted a clip of Le Batard announcing Samson’s hiring, much to the disdain of the crew.

It’s mostly been a quiet 2023 for Meadowlark hires, but the company added Pablo Torre last week and now Samson today. Could Mina Kimes soon follow?
