Former MSNBC Contributor Stephen A. Smith: ‘I am hell-bent on getting a television show’

Your TVNewser editor sat down with ESPN Radio and ESPN.com columnist Stephen A. Smith recently as part of our Media Beat interview series.

Smith was at one point a contributor to MSNBC, and says that he has his eye on returning to the small screen.

Last year Smith was in talks with Showtime on a late-night show, talks that eventually fizzled out. That isn’t stopping Smith however, who tells us he has “unfinished business.”

“I am hell-bent on getting a television show, and I will not rest until it happens,” he says.

Check out part I of our interview with Smith here, and Part II here.
