It looks like Kristine Leahy’s replacement on “The Herd with Colin Cowherd” may be inside the same building. According to Michael McCarthy of the Sporting News, Joy Taylor has emerged as the leading candidate to join Cowherd’s show as the show’s news desk/update anchor.
Taylor has spent the majority of her time at FOX Sports 1 operating as the moderator on “Undisputed” with Skip Bayless and Shannon Sharpe. Her move to Cowherd’s show would create a need for a new conductor on Bayless and Sharpe’s program. McCarthy says two names to keep your eye on for that position are Jenny Taft and Holly Sonders.
Taft, is a former college lacross player who has worked as a sideline reporter on FOX’s college football and soccer coverage. She’s also filled in as a host on both “Undisputed” and “The Herd.”
Sonders on the other hand built a strong profile while working on The Golf Channel before joining FOX Sports. She now serves as an announcer on FOX’s USGA golf coverage, and as a sideline reporter for NFL on FOX game telecasts.
