Stephen A. Smith: 'I am hell-bent on getting a television show, and I will not rest until it happens'

In the final installment of our Media Beat interview series with ESPN Radio host and columnist Stephen A. Smith, we talked about a potential Stephen A. Smith talk show.

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.

We also talked about his other professional interests, his acting gig in the Chris Rock movie “I Think I Love My Wife,” and his love for the ABC soap opera “General Hospital.”


Part I: Smith talks about his philosophy for being a successful journalist.

Part II: Smith talks about some current controversies in the world of sports.
